Applications are due on Friday, May 7th. Teacher recommendations are also due. Audition times will be posted soon.
We have our Spring Concert coming up on May 15. There will be two socially distanced performances in the auditorium, at 2pm and 6:30pm. All students will perform in both shows, and parents will be given an opportunity to get tickets to one or the other. There will be more info coming about this later this month.
Concert Attire is required for the Spring Concert! Please review info below about purchasing concert attire. Concert Attire includes the Green Concert Jacket which is supplied by the band. Students are responsible for purchasing the following:
- Black Tuxedo Pants
- White Wing Collar Tuxedo Shirt
- Black Bow Tie
- Black Cummerbund
- Tall Black Socks
- Black Velocity Marching Shoes or other Black Dress Shoes (no high heels).
Students tend to grow during their high school years! Please have returning students try on their concert attire (especially pants), etc. well before the performance so you can replace them if needed. Items like bow ties & cummerbunds tend to disappear, so make sure your student knows where these items are located before the day that they need them!
You can purchase concert attire at some local stores (such as JCPenney or M&R Clothing) or online at Southeastern Performance Apparel (https://sepapparel.com/) . There are more options, especially for girls, when purchasing online.
If you have any questions about concert attire or uniforms in general, please let me know!
