General Info:
  • All choir members are to sit with their families after their performance. Please do not be walking around during a group's performance.
  • Tear down crew- please help put chairs, risers, piano, stands, equipment back to the band/choir room. Bonus points available (Do what needs to be done to earn your points-points will be awarded based on your involvement)
  • It is asked that all performers stay for the entire concert.  It is only polite and good concert manners.  This is more than just a performing opportunity – it is also a LISTENING and LEARNING opportunity! I understand if your child needs to leave for a pre-existing conflict such as baseball, softball, 4H, Boy/Girl scouts, Washington DC, dance, etc.  If you have no other meetings or practices, I would like that band members stay for the entire concert.
  • Please do not congregate and talk during performances either. Complaints have been made about students talking during concerts.
  • The concert is open and free to the public. Invite family and friends!
