Dear band student and parent,

HO, HO, HO!!! Our annual Grand Holiday Concert is next Thursday the 15th!!! This is our “grandest” concert of the year, featuring all our concert ensembles!

Concert Band students will wear all black from “head to toe”: a black collared dress shirt/blouse and black pants/skirt. We do NOT wear ties. Students may wear a black sweater over a top of choice; however, please be aware that the stage is often warm. Students should wear black dress shoes with black socks (marching shoes may be worn if necessary). For girls, all hems/slits must be below the knee and all shoulders must be covered. You may wear black leggings if the skirt is above the knees. Please avoid clothes that look too casual, i.e., black jeans, tee shirts, tennis shoes. This is a very nice formal event.

Symphonic Band & Wind Ensemble students will wear their formal attire (tuxedo/dresses).

Please consider arriving early with your student as we expect a full house—standing room only!!! Our hope is that you will leave the concert in the highest holiday spirit! We look forward to sharing some great music with you!
