Spring Concert / Awards Ceremony

 Thursday, June 5th will be our final concert of the year – our Spring Concert and Awards Ceremony. 
It starts at 7pm in the auditorium. 

The call times are:
·         Symphonic Orchestra – 5:45pm
·         Concert Orchestra – 6:15pm

     There will NOT a food reception after this concert as there will be the awards ceremony immediately following the concert. Students will be recognized for all of their hard work over this past year in orchestra and the Seniors will also be honored as well as this is their last performance in high school.

     We hope that all family members and friends can attend this special night. Music that will be performed is chosen by the Senior class members – many of them choosing favorite pieces they have played previously in high school.  Come celebrate!

We are looking for a few people who can volunteer to be here at 5:45 next Thursday (concert night) to help with dressing of the kids. We have beautiful new storage rooms this year and the kids will need reminders to “hang things back up…” and “I need your button/pin back…” etc. We would like to have two parents per room (girls and guys) that the kids can come and check their uniform out, and then return them after the concert to the parents so that we do not have a madhouse in the storage rooms.

Please let me know if you can help by Tuesday afternoon. I appreciate it so much! 

Also, this is a friendly reminder that auditions for the Chamber Orchestra will take place after school on June 6th (next Friday) starting at 3:30pm. Students will need to know the required scales, excerpts, have a short section of a solo prepared and there will be sight-reading. Any student wishing to try out for Chamber Orchestra will need to attend this audition.
