String Jamboree Information

Dear Sixth Grade Orchestra Students and Parents:

You are invited to participate in the 2018 Sixth Grade String Jamboree, which will be held on Thursday, March 22nd   at Daniell Middle School.  Sixth grade orchestra students from Palmer, McCleskey, and Daniell will participate in this combined concert and it will be a very exciting event.   Not only will the students have the chance to perform in a huge orchestra, they will also meet students from other schools who are members of their school orchestra.  The students will wear jeans and Palmer Orchestra T-shirts.

On the day of Jamboree, all students should stay after school.  Students will be fed pizza at Palmer before we leave at 4:30 PM. We will load the busses as close to 5 pm as possible.  (Please note that the bus trip is one-way.  You will need to provide transportation home from this event).  Rehearsal at Daniell begins at 5:30 in the gymnasium. The concert will begin at 6:30 PM.  Due to the high traffic volume and limited parking, you may need to park at Piedmont Baptist Church or in the Old Time Pottery parking lot on Canton Road and walk over.  DO NOT PARK ON THE GRASS OF THE RESIDENTS NEAR THE SCHOOL.  Your car may be towed.  Please allow plenty of time to find parking.


Each student will need the following items on the day of Jamboree:

1.           A folding music stand.  (This is on the supply list that was given out at the

beginning of the year.  PLEASE be sure that student’s name is CLEARLY

marked on the stand).

2.           Instrument (all student-owned cellos and basses) and music.

3.           Orchestra T-shirt, which should be worn to school.


Parents, your help is desperately needed. Parents are needed to help with serving pizza, chaperoning on the bus, and transporting instruments to and from Palmer, and helping put chairs away at Daniell Middle School after the event. These instruments will need to be brought back to Palmer first thing Friday morning (by 9am). Please sign up on the orchestra website or send an email to Mrs. Goudreau to know what you are available to assist with.
