Tonight’s the big night! The bands are eager to share the work we’ve been doing in class this trimester, and I know you’ll be proud of all their hard work.
Please see the details below about this evening’s event.
Skyridge Band concert (with Odyssey’s 6th Grade Beginning Band)
Skyridge Middle School Wood Gym
Students arrive at 6:30 p.m.
6th Grade Bands meet and warm up in the Rubber Gym. They will also store their cases there.
7th Grade Band meets and warms up in the Band Room. They will also store their cases there.
8th Grade Band meets and warms up in the Choir Room. They will also store their cases there.
Concert begins at 7 p.m.
What to bring
Instrument and music.
Bass guitar players should bring a patch cord.
Percussionists should bring their sticks and mallets.
Standard concert dress. Please see band website for details.
There will be an attendance sheet in each group’s case storage area. In order to receive credit, students will need to check themselves off once they get there. Students are required to stay for the entirety of the concert.
Seating in the Wood Gym
Students will have a clearly marked off section to sit in while they’re not performing. We ask that students sit there for the entirety of the concert. Students are expected to be quiet, attentive audience members when they are not playing. Concert credit will be reduced if students are being a distraction to other audience members and/or other band members.
After the concert
6th Graders are asked to help move chairs back to the Band Room.
7th Graders are asked to help move music stands back to the Band Room.
8th Graders are asked to help move all percussion and any other equipment back to the Band Room.
We will have two student helpers (Kevin K. and Ryen H.) to help direct all students where to put chairs and stands in the Band Room after the concert. 8th Grade percussionists will help direct where percussion equipment should go.
This will only take a few short minutes with everyone’s help.
I hope parents will take a few moments to come say hello after the concert. I always enjoy visiting with families!
