Concert Band at the Poway High School Band and Orchestra Festival

Poway Center for Performing Arts

Concert Band at the Poway High School Band and Orchestra Festival on Wednesday, April 4th at 4:15 pm at the Poway Center for Performing Arts.  I realize not all parents will be available to take their students to the concert so I am looking for one or two volunteers (just in case, in the past I have had at least one car load) to help drive students from Twin Peaks Middle School to the Poway Center for the Performing Arts. If you are available to drive please email with how many students you can take so that I can get all of the proper paperwork to you.  If your son or daughter needs transportation please email me as ASAP. The volunteer drivers and I will only be responsible with taking students to the event and we will not be returning to Twin Peaks after their performance.  Students are responsible in making sure they have everything with them before they get to the PCPA. This concert is free to attend.

Concert dress is exactly the same as Pre Festival. Girls: White Band polo shirt, Black slacks, or Black skirt, Black shoes and Black socks.  Boys: White Band Polo Shirt, Black Slacks, Black shoes, and Black socks.   NO JEANS, NO TENNIS SHOES, NO WHITE SOCKS, NO MINI SKIRTS.
