AHS Orchestra update – 05.06.19


  1. SPRING BANQUET:  the Spring Banquet is THIS FRIDAY, May 3, at AHS!!!  We are so excited to celebrate the year with great fellowship, awards, and fun!  Doors open at 5:30p, dinner will be served at 6p, and festivities will end at 10p.  WE NEED HELP SETTING UP!!!  If you can help, please meet in the AHS Cafeteria Friday at 3p.  Students and parents are both welcome to help!

  1. UNIFORMS & SCHOOL INSTRUMENTS DUE:  uniforms and school instruments MUST be returned NO LATER THAN Friday, May 17.  Uniforms do not need to be dry-cleaned, only returned complete and undamaged.  Please DO NOT simply leave an instrument or uniform in the Orchestra Hall and consider it checked in.  You MUST check uniforms and instruments in directly to a director, who will then give you instructions.

  1. FINAL PLAYING ASSESSMENT:  a reminder that final playing assessments will take place in class starting next week.  These performances will also serve as placement evaluations for students who will be in orchestra next year.

  1. COLONIAL:  we still need more volunteers for Colonial!!!  PLEASE help us recruit people to help us make this event a success!  Watch for an email in the next few days specifically about Colonial, and let us know if you have any questions!

  1. GRADUATION:  a reminder that graduation is on Saturday, June 8, and is REQUIRED of members of Symphony and Philharmonic.  We are currently coordinating details about music and rehearsals with the band, and will get that information to students as soon as possible.  Please keep in mind that a rehearsal during the week between the last day of school and graduation is VERY likely.

Please let us know if you have any questions, and thank you for your support of the AHS Orchestra!
