Good evening! Quick reminder about the final concert of our season tomorrow evening. It has been a terrific year and we look forward to celebrating with our seniors with one final performance.
Students will wear their concert attire. Concert band reports on-stage at 6:30PM, all others should report to the audience by 6:45PM. Tomorrow’s concert will feature all three of our concert bands and a few chamber ensembles. In addition we will be joined by the Carrollton Youth Orchestra, which will begin performing at 6:30 in the MAC lobby. If you get a chance, please stop by and listen – you will be glad that you did!
Other important things happening this week include:
- Fall Guard Rehearsal on Monday from 4:00pm-7:00pm (students participating in the concert will be released at 6:00pm)
- Marching Percussion Tryouts on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 3:30pm – 5:30pm
- Band Prom on Saturday from 6:00pm – 10:00pm.
This year’s band prom theme is “Once Upon A Time.” We hope that the students have a good time decorating tables, dressing up for the theme, and hanging out with their friends on Saturday. The event is free for our band students, courtesy of the band boosters. Each band student is welcome to invite 1 guest to attend for $5.00. A DJ will be in the band room keeping the party fun while a Mario Kart Tournament is happening in the large ensemble room and fellowship accompanied by some wonderful treats are enjoyed in the lobby. Let’s send our Seniors out with the celebration that they deserve. We will surely miss them as they have had an impact on us all.
