Wed. May 18- Graduation Day
Seminar- will try to run graduation music during seminar. Kids, stay tuned for precise time, as seminar and lunch occur within the same block. This is NOT a required rehearsal, but please attend if you can. PLEASE take care of academic things first…but we are making this rehearsal an opportunity so the evening performance goes better.
5:45PM- All 9th-11th graders (except freshman percussion) are in graduation band. Please dress nice, yet appropriate for weather. Report to band room. We will warmup/rehearse, then head to the stadium. PLEASE bring as many clothes pins as you can, so we can attach music to stands. Graduation begins at 7:00PM and should last until about 8:45 or so. Parents of graduation band, we generally ask that you don’t attend, as the campus is packed with seniors and their families.
