Middle School Band Concert

The Annual Middle School Band Christmas Concert will be held on Tuesday, December 14th.

It will start at 6:30 p.m. in the White Oak Auditorium.  This is the order of performance:

  1. 6th Grade Band (will need to be on stage by 6:00 pm to warm up)
  2. 7th Grade Band (instructions for times to be at the auditorium will be given at a later time)
  3. 8th Grade Band  (instructions for times to be at the auditorium will be given at a later time)

What to wear?  Students need to wear nice clothes that are appropriate for a concert.  What students normally wear to school is not really appropriate for this occasion.

Suggestions are (but not limited to:)  

Guys – Nice button down shirt with a collar.  A tie would be even better.  Dark pants or slacks.

Girls – A dress would look very nice, but not required.  Please make sure it is within reason of the school dress code.  If not wearing a dress, then nice slacks and a shirt.

As always, this is a performance grade!
