5/17 Weekly Schedule

This week we all have a busy week ahead of us, so please make sure you're being proactive with your homework, studies, and sleep! To make sure we're all on the same page, here is what's going on for the Bands this week:


Monday, 5/17 - VPA Festival Dress Rehearsal (Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, Jazz Ensemble)

Period 6 & 7 - Move equipment outside to the stage

2:15pm - Dress Rehearsal begins outside in theater parking lot

- Students should grab whatever they need to perform (instruments, music (BINDERS WITH PLASTIC SLEEVES AND CLIPS), instrument masks...etc.) and report directly to the theater parking lot. Students should not be hanging out inside.

3:45pm/4pm - Approximate rehearsal end time for high school students. Please check the VPA Festival Dress Rehearsal Schedule below for approximate times. Once students are done performing with their group, they may leave, however, I will need students to help clean up and carry equipment inside after we're done rehearsing.
