5th Grade Band Notes
March 16, 2015
Band Concert next Tuesday!
Our second band concert is next week on Tuesday, March 24th. The students have been working extremely hard and have made a ton of progress since our December concert. This concert is not at Schiesher- it is at the High School. The students need to arrive at 6:30 to the auditorium stage (turn right as soon as you walk in the front door and you won’t miss it.) The concert will begin promptly at 7:00 with our performance. I anticipate our portion of the performance to go from 7:00 until about 7:10 so make sure you come on time! This concert features all 5th through 12th grade band students in Lisle District 202. Please plan on staying for the entire concert. It is important for the 5th graders to hear the older groups that they will be performing with in the coming years.
We will still be having our normal Tuesday after-school rehearsal before the concert on the 24th. Since rehearsal goes until 4:30 and the students have to be back at 6:30, I recommend that pick your child up from the high school after rehearsal if you are able to. If you are not able to, that is fine- just be prepared for a quick turnaround when they get home.
Concert Night Agenda
6:30 PM- Students arrive to the high school and report to the Auditorium Stage. Students will quietly set their instruments up and warm-up.
6:50 PM- Students will walk to the gym together and sit in their seats
7:00 PM- 5th Grade Band performs
7:25 (approximately)- During the switch-over of bands, students will go back to the auditorium and quickly put their instruments away. Students will then come back to the gym, find their parents in the bleachers, and sit with them for the remainder of the evening. This entire process should take no more than 5 minutes.
8:30 PM- Concert is over and students are free to go
