Concert Band at the Poway High School Band and Orchestra Festival

Wednesday, April 4, 2018 4:15 pm
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. We are graded on appearance.

Time frame for Wednesday, April 4th.

3:30 pm  Arrive at the Performing Arts (we will meet at the big patio area outside in front of the PCPA)

3:45 pm  warm-up

4:15 pm  Performance

4:45 pm Sight reading (mandatory) in PHS Band Room (N-2 and parents are welcome to attend this as well)

The students will be done by 5:15 pm and are free to go home or stay and listen to other bands.  After sight reading I will be walking all students back to PCPA that are not picked up 10 minutes after we are done.

Parents/Guardians please make every effort to attend this concert so that the band has a big audience.  The more supportive the audience the better the band will play.

The concert is free for all who attend.   If staying for the evening Orchestra Showcase there is a $10 fee for adults.
