Dear CMS Band Parents,
Here are some reminders about our upcoming concert on Monday, December the 12th.
- The concert begins at 7pm. Your students must arrive in uniform with their instrument at 6:30 to the stage in the Mabry Arts Center. We will be seating your students and getting last minute details worked out. Please do not show up late. Students who are not in full uniform will not be allowed to perform.
- Full uniform includes: black pants/long skirt (no jeans), black socks, dress shoes (closed toed shoes for females), and your black performance polo. After Monday all students will have their band polos.
- I HIGHLY recommend that you take your student shopping NOW to make sure that they have their appropriate performance attire. Many students wait until the days before and “have no dress pants that fit me”. We want for the students to learn to be proactive and responsible about things. Please contact me with any if you need assistance in purchasing any part of the uniform. Your student will wear this outfit for 5th-8th grade band so it is a great investment.
- It is a formal concert that will last about one hour. Not only do we expect for you and your students to stay for the entire concert but we encourage it so that both you and your student can support the other grade levels and have something to aspire to. It is one of our two after school concerts and we ask that you enjoy the whole thing! Attending the concert is a grade for your student!! Do not forget that.
The 5th graders will be performing the following lines out of their book for the concert. They may want to begin touching up on these lines: 1-10, 14 Rolling Along, 17 Hot Cross Buns, 24 Listen to Our Sections, 25 Lightly Row, 30 London Bridge, 31 A Mozart Melody, 38 Jingle Bells.
6th Grade is already aware of what they are performing at the concert. They have the sheet music in their binders. Brush up so that we can hit the ground running tomorrow!
