You are required to attend 2 of the bold items and 2 high school bands (other than DeKalb). We spend nearly $1000 to attend this festival… it’s important for you to take advantage of as many jazz opportunities as you can. A schedule is with this so you can know when and where things are happening. Encourage your family to come see you! It’s free for them!
You will need money for dinner Friday night, lunch and dinner on Saturday. Make sure you pack everything you’ll need on THURSDAY night! Don’t wait until Friday morning!!! If you don’t, you will inevitably forget something!!!
