AHS Orchestra update – 11.07.16


1. BARRAGE: Barrage 8 is here THIS WEEK!!! Concert is Wednesday, November 9, at 7 pm at AHS! Tickets are $10 for students, $15 for adults, and may be purchased online at www.barrage8.com, or will be available at the door for cash only. PLEASE HELP US SPREAD THE WORD!!!

AHS Orchestra cluster students have the opportunity to interact with the cast of Barrage 8 in an acoustic performance and Q&A on Tuesday, November 8, from 5-5:45 pm. This is a great opportunity for our students, and we hope to see everyone there!

2. BRANSON 2017 UPDATE: we are finalizing numbers for our trip to Branson! If any student didn’t turn in their contract/deposit and is still interested, they should talk to Mr. Goins ASAP! The same for any parents who were interested in serving as chaperones and did not submit an application. We can probably still add you, but need to know this week!

3. TURKEY BASH: Turkey Bash is coming up soon, and will be Friday, November 18, from 6-9 pm. This year, we will be in the Multipurpose Activity Center (MAC)! Student sign-ups for food will be discussed in class later this week. HAVE ANY LEFTOVER HALLOWEEN CANDY??? You could donate it to the AHS Orchestra for Turkey Bash! Watch for more info…

4. PASSOFFS: students were given information today about passoffs for the third six weeks (also available on Charms). Directors will begin listening to passoffs the last class cycle this week, and students will have an opportunity to play in class once per week moving forward. Any student who would like to get ahead, or who would like to retake passoffs outside of class, can request a pass for plus period, or may arrange with directors to come in before or after school.

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