Fall Concert Expectations

Hello All,

As we get closer to our performance tomorrow evening I want to let you know about some important expectations I put in place to make sure our concerts run smoothly and help to make the atmosphere enjoyable for all.

7th GRADE BAND MEMBERS:  Will report to the stage at 6:30pm for warm-up.  Flutes, Oboe, Clarinets can put their case underneath their chair.  All other wind instruments will need to put their case backstage and go straight to their seat.  No student should play until we play as a group.

8th GRADE BAND MEMBERS:  Will report to the auditorium reserved section at 6:45pm after they have put their instruments together.  Tubas will need to wait until the 7th grade is finished.  No student should play until we play as a group.

SEATING:  This year seating should be much better as we will not have the 6th grade band for our concerts.  This should make parking and seating a lot better, please DO NOT stand around the outside of the auditorium.  We will also be putting the band section in the back to allow for all patrons to sit on the main floor.

NOISE:  Please leave the auditorium if you have a restless child or noisy cough.  We do record all of our concerts for the students to listen to and reflect on.  We like to have the quietest environment in which to perform.

CELL PHONES:  Please take up your childs cell phone prior to the concert starting.  They will not need it for the duration of the concert.  Please silence your device as well, and please do not use it when the lights are dimmed.

ATTENDANCE:  It is imperative that everyone stay and support both 7th and 8th grade bands.  Please DO NOT leave after your childs band is finished.

EXTRA SERVICES AVAILABLE:  We will have a parent volunteer on hand to take 8th Grade Carowinds Spring Trip deposits and health forms.  The deposit is $50 for all chaperones and students and isn’t due until November 30th, but if you would like to get it out of the way that would be great.  We will also be selling Carrollton Trojan Tumblers for $15 if you are interested.

 

Thank you again for all of your support.

 

More setup help. 

Hello everyone

I am still looking for a large setup crew that can help around 4pm at the MAC Thursday. Many hands make light work. If you can give of your time I would sure appreciate it. 

Thanks all, see you Thursday.
