It’s Concert Season! Here is some information about the next few weeks…

We have several band, orchestra, and choir concerts coming up in the next couple of weeks. You are encouraged to invite family and friends! Each concert should last about an hour. If you are able to arrive early or stay a few minutes late to help set up/put away chairs it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for all that you do to make sure your student is at each rehearsal and performance. If your student will be unable to attend, please let me know as soon as possible.

Please read through the concert details carefully, and contact me with any questions or concerns at
