Lakewood Area Music Festival – Wednesday Feb. 10th 7:00pm @CMS
Our annual festival featuring Lakewood HS, Creighton MS, and five elementary schools. This is the big band concert of the year and is sure to be a great evening! Have a nice reminder of where it all began and where your students will go when they get into high school band.
Students arrive at 6:30pm
Students need to have their CMS polo shirt, black pants, music, and instrument. If you have a folding stand at home you would be okay letting the elementary kids use for this concert, please label it and bring it with on the day of the concert! Thanks!
*If your student needs a polo shirt (didn’t have one last semester, lost it, etc.), please send me an email and $15 so we can have it ready prior to the festival.*
Audition music will be handed out in class soon.
The Symphonic Band will perform at 8:00am for an audience and clinician who will provide a group rating along with working with the band members to improve our sound and skills! After the performance we will stay and watch other groups before heading back to school.
I will send out an itinerary soon, but anticipate students arriving at Creighton around 7:00am to gather instruments and hop on the bus to Green Mountain.
*We would love to have 3-5 parents come along as chaperones/cheering squad, so look for a sign-up when the itinerary is sent out!
A reminder to students to fill out practice cards weekly and turn them in at the beginning of each week!
If a practice card is a missing assignment, here are some options to fix that grade:
– Turn in an extra practice card the next week or any week after that
– Come in after school to practice and I will sign off on that time (I am here 99.9% of the time)
– Ask Mom or Dad nicely to send me an email to verify your practice time for that week
We’re aiming for 2 hours of weekly practice!
Thanks for your support! Have a musical Monday!
