End of Summer Picnic Aug. 19th at 6pm

As the summer is ending and school is starting we are going to have another potluck picnic get-together, open to all current and former students and their families, and will get to meet our new teacher, Natalie Miller!  The picnic is scheduled for Fri. Aug. 19th at 6pm at the pavilion at Cleveland park, families with the last name starting with letter A-H will bring a main dish, I-R will bring a side dish, and S-Z will bring a dessert (but its informal so just bring whatever you want to make really).    Please bring your own plates, utensils and drinks.    Hope to see you all there!  Please feel free to pass along this info to any orchestra families that may not get our emails or not a part of the Facebook group.

Graduation Info

Here is the schedule information for Thursday.

Dismissed from 6th period 1:45
Drive to U. S. Cellular Center – you are responsible for transporting yourself. Don’t forget your instrument or music.

2:30 Be at USCC ready to go and rehearse

3:30 done rehearsing, you will be dismissed to go change to concert black

5:00 be back at the US Cell center. Although this time is early, parking will be at a premium so better to be early and not have to walk multiple blocks.

5:15 warm-up, tuning

6:00 String concert, probably start a little earlier so as to get through all of our music.

6:15 transition from orchestra to band – you are dismissed.

Remember, the evening performance is concert black unless you are a senior (cap and gown for you).
