AHS Orchestra Spring Concert reminders

UPDATE FOR CELLO & BASS PLAYERS: due to a change in how we are getting equipment to Fielder, we will now be able to transport all school cellos and basses to the church. Students are responsible for preparing the instruments for loading following the concert by packing them up and staging them around the Symphony uncasing area. Cello and bass students are responsible for bringing their own music and anything else needed.

The rest of what is below is a repeat of the update email sent last week…

Once unpacked, enter the auditorium, find the seating area for your group in the front seating sections, and wait for further instructions.

CONCERT LENGTH: with all groups on one performance, plus Senior Solos and Senior Recognition, please be prepared for this concert to be a longer concert. We will do everything in our power to manage the length of the concert, and the total length should be no more than two hours. ALL students are expected to stay until the end of the concert.

UNIFORM RETURN: due to this concert being off campus, students will not leave their uniforms after the concert as in the past. Instead, students MUST return ALL PARTS, including uniform bags, by FRIDAY, MAY 12. Directors will check students in as they return the uniform. Students failing to return their uniform by this time will be placed on the “not clear” list.

We are looking forward to a fantastic Spring Concert, and we look forward to seeing you on Tuesday!!!
