4th Grade Band
*We will have a dress rehearsal on Wednesday, March 8th in the AM. Students should arrive at the HS at 6:15pm for the concert and report to the HS Gym. Students will assemble instruments, leave cases and jackets in the gym, report directly to the auditorium, and sit in the assign bleacher seats. We will warm up on stage at 6:40, and perform first in the concert.
5th Grade Band
*We will have a dress rehearsal on Tuesday, March 7th in the AM. Students should arrive at the HS at 6:15pm for the concert and report to the HS Gym. Students will assemble instruments, leave cases and jackets in the gym, and report directly to the stage for warm-up. Warm-up will begin promptly at 6:20! Once finished, 5th Graders will move to the bleacher seats in the auditorium (with instruments), and will return to stage following the 4th grade performance.
All Band Students should arrive in concert attire - the Ellis performance shirt (tucked in), black bottom, and black shoes. Please be sure to launder and iron your shirt this week so that it is in good shape for the concert! Once each group is finished performing, they will sit in the bleacher seats in the back of the auditorium to watch the rest of the concert. Please plan to stay for the entire concert, and enjoy the MS and HS instrumental performing groups. If you need to leave with your student early, please let Mr. Clermont know in advance of concert day.
Both groups have put in some incredible work to put together this concert in a short amount of time, and despite the wacky weather! I am very excited to perform with them at this concert. We hope you enjoy the show!
