  • November news

    Parents,                                                                                                                                   October 24, 2016

                Happy Halloween! I am writing this letter to keep you informed about things that are going on soon in band/orchestra land.

    Practice cards – For every month, there is a corresponding practice card. You can print them out from the practice cards tab and your child gets music money for turning them in. They are a great way to keep track of where we should be at throughout the year so you don’t fall behind.

    Playing tests – On the week of Nov 9, there will be playing tests for everyone. Here is what your child is expected to know: You have a lot of time to prepare, please don’t wait until the last minute.

    Beginning Band - #27 Good King Wenceslas

    Beginning Orchestra – #43 Mozart Melody

    Advanced Band – Already did their test

    Advanced Orchestra – #124 G major study

    Concerts – Our fall concerts are just around the corner! Both band and orchestra will have a concert on the 7th of November.  If your child is in beginning or advanced band, your concert is at 5:30PM. If your child is in beginning or advanced orchestra, your concert is at 7:00PM.  Both concerts are at Columbine High School in the gym.

    Band Concert schedule:

    Beginners arrive at 5:00

    Advanced students arrive at 5:15

    5:30  – Concert

     

    Orchestra Concert schedule:

    Beginners arrive at 6:30

    Advanced students arrive at 6:45

    Item checklist for concert:

    __Music stand

    __Band/Orchestra t-shirt (or black shirt if you don’t have one) and black pants or skirt.

     

    I look forward to seeing you at the concert!
