    Tuesday, November 19 - Our First Concert Of The Year!!

    2019 2020 November Concert Program

    Advanced Band

    Wear dress clothes! No jeans/tennis shoes/tshirts/hoodies please. If you need help with clothing I am happy to help, but I must know by November 12.

    7:10pm – Arrive at Highland East. Parking will be difficult. Come through the Bandroom Door 8.

    Get your horn out of the case. Get your music. Go to new gym.

    7:15 – We will start the concert warmup.

    7:30 – Concert begins!

    8:00 – Concert is over. Everyone will need to take their chair/stand back to the bandroom and put in the correct place. Percussion will also need to return equipment to the bandroom in the correct place.

    I need two Advanced Band people to play the National Anthem. One before the Beginner Band concert and one before the Advanced band concert.

    I know you will play well…..the sign of a great concert and a great group of musicians is what happens before and after the performance. No drama please! Be on time and take care of business!
