CMEA BAND FESTIVAL SCHEDULE for Friday, April 12th

(Vicki Feltman)

 

Please remember that all performances are mandatory and count towards your grade.   Contact Mr. Burn ASAP if there is any kind of conflict on Friday, April 12th.

 

If you share your instrument with someone else, make prior arrangements for a smooth handoff of your instrument.   Mr. Burn and Mr. Weingartner will not be pleased if you can’t play because you didn’t arrange for the other person to give you your shared instrument.

 

Formal Concert Attire:

 

Boys:

Black dress shoes, dark socks, black pants (no jeans), white button-up collared shirt, black tie and black sport coat. If a coat is unavailable, a black sweater is ok, but no sweatshirts or black shirts please.

Girls:

Preferred: Long black dress with shoulders covered, black hose and shoes.

Ok: Long black pants or skirt knee length or longer, black top with shoulders covered, black hose and shoes.

Not Ok: T-shirts, sweatshirts, and tennis shoes.

Rule of thumb for girls’ formal concert attire: the less skin showing, the better.
