Things You should know about MV Orchestra concerts:

1. EVERY student is expected to listen RESPECTFULLY to EVERY performance at the concert that night. Part of the AKS for Orchestra is performance and concert etiquette, so students will be graded both their performance as part of an ensemble and as part of the audience.

2. Admission to the concert is $5 per person over 3 years of age. If you have paid the $90 membership fee, your whole family receives FREE admission! IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO PAY TO BE A MEMBER!

3. Students will not be allowed to have phones with them on stage or in the audience at the concert. It may be a good idea for you, the guardian, to keep your student's phone while they perform.

4. For THIS concert: if your student is a member of CHAMBER orchestra, they are not required to attend. Their Fall Concert is November 12, 13, and 14.

join our organization and get admission for free!
