I want to piggy back off of what Mr. Huls said to on the CJHS Trojan Band page. I want to say that our first full band rehearsal yesterday during school was fantastic. I cannot wait to put on the final touches for the concert on Monday. A quick reminder that the students need all black on the bottom (no jeans), and their band performance polo on top tucked in. Check to make sure that they wear black socks and that they are not wearing tennis shoes. We want a professional look from the 6th-8th grade programs. Anyone willing to volunteer on Monday around 3:15 please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
From Mr. Huls,
With our 8th grade after school rehearsal today we put the finishing touches on our concert music and we are all set for an awesome performance next week. Here is some information to keep in mind as you prepare for next Monday night:
6th grade band: arrive at 6:30pm in full uniform, shirt tucked in. Report to the stage.
7th grade band: arrive at 6:45pm in full uniform, shirt tucked in. Report to the warm up room backstage right.
8th grade band: arrive at 6:45pm in full uniform, shirt tucked in. Report to the front right seats to watch 6th grade perform.
We will need several parents to come help setup after school at the MAC at around 3:15pm. We will also need everyone’s effort to pack up after the concert is over.
This will be the first concert without the use of the high school parking lot directly in front of the MAC. That is where the new HS is being built. All parents will need to park across the street in the new lower parking lot. The gym and tennis court parking will most likely be pretty full due to basketball game at the HS gym. Please plan ahead and arrive a little bit early.
My expectation for all those watching the concert is that all of the bands will stay for the entire time and enjoy the entire performance. Please do not leave early.
Please collect your child’s cell phone. Be adamant about holding onto it for them, it becomes a distraction when the students are in the audience and should be watching and listening the other bands.
Please be extremely quiet throughout the performance. We want to create a formal, quiet environment where music can be created. We also record all of our performances for reflection in class.
When we all work together we can create a great environment for our kids to show off.
I cannot wait to see you there Monday night.
