Our first orchestra concert of the school year will take place on Wednesday, November 2 at 7:00pm. It will feature the 7th-12th grade orchestras including a finale with all the students! In order to make this happen will have a combined rehearsal Wednesday morning at the HS. The MS students will travel by school bus to the HS for the rehearsal. They will return to the middle school in time for lunch.
We are asking the MS cello/bass parents to drop off their instruments to the high school in advance. You can drop off the instruments to the HS orchestra room (107) on Tuesday Nov 1 between 5-6:30pm. Also, you could drop them off Wednesday morning anytime before 9:00am. The students can leave the instruments there after the rehearsal for the evening concert. They will be locked in a secure location.
All students should arrive to the concert in uniform with their music by 6:30pm in order to tune and warm up.
