UIL Solo and Ensemble is Saturday, February 6th, 2021

UIL Solo and Ensemble is on Saturday, February 6th 2021 at Katy High School with just our students. We have 80 students signed up, which is fantastic! We are going to be socially distanced and spread out for warm up. We will all be performing with masks.

Make sure you're academically eligible-- just like sports, you have to be passing your classes to participate in UIL activities.

Make sure you plan to dress nicely, business casual or "Sunday best."

Please arrive 20 to 30 minutes before your performance time. Warm up is in the orchestra room.

Do you need a different time or I made a mistake? Email me

There are 4 available time slots on the schedule below-- email me if you want to switch your time to one of those times!

Some time slots have 2 students in them because the solos are short.

Enter the OUTSIDE orchestra door on the south side of campus. See photo map below. Warm up is in the orchestra room.

If you've graduated or would like to unsubscribe from my KHS Orchestra emails, there is an unsubscribe link at the very bottom of this email. I can also take it off manually if the link doesn't work-- just email me. I'm keeping the same email list from last year.
