March concert season is here! It has been a busy winter with so many special events, including our first time playing outside the building in almost 2 years. Thank you to our chaperones who attended Symphony’s trip to Midwest Young Artists last week. It was such a great exchange with Glenbard East and nice to spend some more time working with Dr. Dennis.
We have three after school performances coming up before spring break, please read below to make sure you have everything on your calendar.
March 16 Concert for all orchestras:
Call time is 5:45 for rehearsal on the stage in the PAC. Call times are the time that the rehearsal will start. Students not in their seats and ready to perform will be marked down on the summative concert attendance grade.
-Tux jackets can be picked up after rehearsal.
Call time is 6:30 in the choir room.
Please follow dress code as outlined in the handbook.
Boys must show up in black pants, tux shirt, black shoes, and socks. We will distribute tux jackets and bow ties before the concert
Remember that boys must purchase their own black pants and tux shirt.
Girls wear solid black: Girls have the freedom to choose their apparel if sleeves extend below the elbow and skirts or slacks to the ankle, and the midriff must not show while standing or sitting. This may be a long sleeve all black dress or black blouse or sweater and ankle-length skirt. Full black slacks are also appropriate and encouraged for cello players. Girls must also wear black closed-toe dress shoes (not more than 2” heel) and black stockings or hose.
