Regular Rehearsal on Saturday, October 14
This weekend is the Emanual, New London B-Team Volleyball Tournament. Many of our students are involved with this as well. If at all possible, please try to have your kids come to a portion of the rehearsal. Remember it is OK if they wear their volleyball uniforms to rehearsal!
Rehearsals leading up to our November concert will be on the following Saturdays:
October 14, 21
November 4, 11, 18
November 19 - Fall Concert (6:00 PM)
Thanks to all of our students, parents, relatives and friends for again making our Fall Fundraiser a huge success! Preliminary numbers are in, but this may change once we get our final numbers from Hansen's. For the fourth consecutive year, we surpassed our prevous years' totals! For this year's drive, we set our goal at $9500 in sales. Last year's total sales were $8982. Although we did not reach our goal, we were VERY close with $9431 in total sales! Nice work everybody!
PRODUCT DELIVERY DATE: Saturday, November 4 • 8:00-10:00am
The product will be distributed from the STAGE instead of the Commons as we have done in the past. There is a large basketball tournament that day, and there will be too much activity in the Commons to set up our products.
*** ALL ORDERS MUST BE PICKED UP ON THIS DATE ***
If you cannot be there for pick up, please make arrangements for someone else to pick your order up for you.
Concert Vest Fittings will be Saturday, October 14
We will fit the concert vests for the Cadet Band and Concert Winds students on Saturday, October 14 during the rehearsal. A few moms or dads is all that is needed. We have several moms who have volunteerd for our uniform crew, but more would be welcome on fitting day. Thanks for considering this very important volunteer opportunity!
Then on the day of the concert (November 19) we would need our parent uniform volunteers to assist with distributing the vests before the concert and collecting them after the concert.
Concert Dress for the November 19 concert
So that you have adequate time to prepare, here is a summary of what our students need to wear for our concert in November (Both Cadet Band and Concert Winds):
Ladies should wear black dress shoes, black socks or black hose, full length black pants (not faded), and a white button blouse with long sleeves. No tennis shoes, leggings, or capri style pants. Do not wear black skirts.
Gentlemen should wear black dress shoes, black socks, black belt, black pants (not faded), and a white dress shirt.
The Concert Winds members will wear a bow tie with their vests, so it is important to have a shirt with a "traditional" collar.
The Cadet Band members will wear a sweater vest for their performances. The vests will be handed out prior to and collected immediately following the concert.
Concert Winds members will receive a vest and bow tie before their performance. Vests and bow ties will be handed out prior to and should be returned immediately after the concert.
