On Wednesday, March 18th, all of our band and jazz band students will be participating in the Region V Large Group Contest that is hosted here at the PAC. Below is the information the students will need for the day (class dismissal, what to bring, where to meet, etc.) and also some information for parents:
IMPORTANT - RIGHT AFTER THE SPRING CONCERT on Tuesday, March 17th, ALL BAND STUDENTS need to put their instruments in the choir room. Concert Band students should keep instruments together in a pile and Wind Ensemble kids do the same. You WILL NOT be able to access the band storage area while performances are happening in the band room on Wednesday during the day.
All band and jazz band members need to wear concert dress black attire like we do for the concerts. You may change in and out of these items if you wish or simply wear your performance clothes to school that day.
WARMUP ROOMS/PERFORMANCE TIMES
Normally the bands would warm up in the black box theatre...but since the Concert Band is performing first and the Wind Ensemble is right after lunch, we will simply meet on stage for our warm-up time. Warm-up time for the Concert Band is 7:35AM and our performance is 8:05AM on the stage of the theatre. Jazz Band warms up in the show choir rehearsal room at 9:10AM and then performs at 9:40AM in the band room. Wind Ensemble will warm up on stage at 12:30PM and our performance time is at 1:00PM on the stage of the theatre.
DISMISSAL FROM CLASS
These concert band members will be performing in the morning at 8:05AM and will be watching bands in the auditorium through the end of G1 (9:45AM). The bands after we are done performing are Parkston, White Lake and Armour. Once Armour is done, please report back to G2 if you are NOT in jazz band.
These students will be doing the same as above but will report to G2 after jazz band is done (be back in class no later than 10:20AM):
These students will need to be dismissed at from G1 at 9AM and will be back by SRB:
These students will be dismissed from G3 at 12:25PM and will need to eat A or B lunch and will return to start of SRB (if you have SRB):
