After all rehearsals, students will have time to change. There is a bus for Symphonic 1 and Wind Ensemble members that departs Forney HS at 4:15pm. Symphonic 1 Band changes clothes at Forney HS then loads the bus. Wind Ensemble loads the bus first, then changes clothes at North Forney HS. Do not leave anything at Forney HS!
Concerts are open to everyone and take place at North Forney High School. Please make note of the different starting times for each band:

Attire for the concerts is "nice clothes" - not concert black. However, feel free to wear your black if you like. Gentlemen may rather wear a suit or nice slacks and dress shirt instead of the tux, however.
Parents may meet the students in the Cafeteria following the concerts. Recordings, plaques and t-shirts will be for sale in the lobby area. You are free to leave after your concert.
All-Region Band members should get plenty of rest this week and make sure you are prepared for the rehearsals!
