Depending on band placement in finals, we may option to take the students back home after a finals performance in order to allow them time to rest and avoid creating a later night for everyone. If we advance to finals, we will learn about the time slot and schedule to determine when we eat, dress and stage for warm up/performance.

See you all soon!
