Middle School Concerts - Marching Band Performs THIS WEDNESDAY
Both middle school band programs will be having their fall concerts this month. The first concert at Middle School East is this Wednesday, September 18, and will begin at 6:00pm. The second concert is at Middle School West on Monday, September 30 at 6:00pm. The marching band will perform at the end of both of these concerts.
The call time for all marching band students on both evenings is 6:00pm. There will be no transportation provided to or from the middle schools. Students should take their instruments home after the school day and meet at the middle schools at call time. For uniforms, all members will be required to wear their show shirts from the 2019 season.
As the middle school band plays, the marching band will line up and be ready to move on stage at the conclusion of the middle school band performance. The marching band will perform selections from Cirque de Catrinas.
Due to these events being added later to our calendar, the directors will be more lenient towards conflicts that have been previously scheduled. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if there is a scheduling conflict.
