Symphonic Band MPA – Tuesday, March 20

11:30am – Students released from 3rd period classes/grab instruments/report to auditorium stage to warmup.

12:30pm – PERFORMANCE

12:50pm – sight read in band room

1:00pm – put equipment away/go to 3rd lunch

**Symphonic Band members will need to come to school IN CONCERT BLACK. There will not be enough time for you change when you are released from 3rd period.

Wind Ensemble MPA – Thursday, March 22
3:00pm – School lets out/grab instruments/change into concert attire (or wear it to school)
3:25pm – warm up in choir room
4:10pm – PERFORMANCE
4:40pm – sight read in band room
5:00pm – put equipment away

*** Wind Ensemble members will wear CONCERT BLACK for MPA. 

As our band room will be used by other bands to sight read, I will work out a way for students to get into the band room to get instruments between bands. Students, just be patient as we allow other groups to finish their sight reading. We’ll go over more specific logistics in class.

I know that MPA performances are during the school day and many parents work, but if you can sneak away for a bit to come see your student, I know you will not be disappointed! MPA is often the most “polished” performance of the year, and I know the students appreciate performing for a full house! Pretty cool it’s on our home turf this year! 

Looking forward to some wonderful opportunities to make music together!

Yay Band!

Mr. Still
