I hope you are feeling festive and jolly! This is a reminder as posted on the website that we will have our annual Winter Concert in conjunction with the Middle School 6, 7, and 8th grade bands, at 7pm on Wednesday December 15, 2010 in the High School Gymnasium. The program will feature a wide variety of winter and holiday related pieces, and the High School will be performing a program of pieces from around the world, from the traditional Sleigh Ride to a Calypso Christmas including a Reggae version of Silver Bells. We will also be playing a combined piece with the 8th grade band, and a combined jazz band piece. Please spread the word, and invite as many people as you would like! It will be a great event for the whole family. Admission is free and open to the public, and donations will be accepted for the Music program.
High School students are asked to arrive at 6pm in concert black dress attire. Students will be performing in small ensembles in the lobby and the music hallway as people arrive to provide a festive atmosphere as people arrive for the concert. The program is expected to go no later then 8:30pm, and students are asked to stay to help take down and move equipment and chairs.
Which brings me to some questions:
- Would one of you be willing to sit at a desk and accept donations as people arrive to the concert. If you could be there at 6:00pm, and sit at the desk with a basket for donations, and programs for people as they come in, that would be great!
- Also, I wanted to put it out there that this might be a great place for a table of baked goodies we could sell for the Music Program also, but we would need some willing volunteers to make some goodies, and sit at the table with the cash box to sell them. If this is too much, just tell me. If we have enough people respond to me, I may put this out to all parents in the Music department to see if we can put something together for it.
