The High School Christmas Concert will be on Monday, December 16th @ 6:30 p.m. in the White Oak Auditorium.
The Middle School Christmas Concert will be on Tuesday, December 17th @ 6:30 p.m. in the White Oak Auditorium.
The concert will start off with the 6th Grade Band, Followed by the 7th Grade Band, and then concluding with the 8th Grade Band. The 6th Grade band will need to be on stage NO LATER THAN 6:00 PM so that we can check roll and play through our pieces. 7th and 8th grade band students are to sit with their PARENTS / FAMILY and have all required music and instrument at their seat. STUDENTS DO NOT NEED TO BE SEATED IN LARGE GROUPS UNMONITORED. Parents, please help your student and make sure they are as quiet and respectful as possible during the concert. Every concert should be a dignified and respectful event. Every student has the right to a proper concert atmosphere. Audience noise, talking, or other distractions will only take away from the students’ performance.
Students are strongly encouraged to dress nice for the concert. There are many different ideas about what is nice, so the following recommendations are to be considered but not mandatory:
Girls – A dress is preferred, but you could also wear a nice shirt and pants. (Please make sure dresses are a modest length and be mindful of the top.)
Boys – A nice button up shirt and slacks with a tie is preferred. Also it is suggested that shirt tails are tucked in and that you complete the look by wearing a belt. No hats of any kind.
If you are unsure, school dress code is always preferred. I know that most dresses won’t adhere to the dress code completely, but please get as close as possible. Parents, use your best judgement and check your student’s attire before the day of the concert.
Each student has put in untold amounts of practice to reach this level. Our concert is a celebration of their achievements as well as a Benchmark for measuring how far they have grown, and where they need to continue their growth. This concert is also considered a Semester Exam Grade for the students, so attendance is strongly encouraged.
The directors would like to thank the Parents and Students for the efforts made to make this evening’s concert possible. Your investments with time and money to music are certainly appreciated and will continue to aid in the full development in each student’s personal growth.
