Next week’s Middle School Concert on February 18 has been moved from the Middle School Auditorium to the High School Auditorium. The Fifth Grade will start the concert with their debut performance that was canceled due to weather. The 7th and 8th grades will perform right after them. We’d ask that the 7th and 8th grades arrive at 6:45pm, meet in the HS band room and sit in the audience for the 5th grade portion of the concert. It still starts at 7pm.

HIGH SCHOOL AUDITORIUM
Band Festival will be held on February 20th at Grand Haven High School. 7th grade performs at 9:25am and 8th grade at 10:30am. We will have detailed itineraries online shortly. If you are willing and able to ride the bus as a chaperone, please contact Mr. Grevengoed ASAP. firstname.lastname@example.org
We will also be sending uniforms (white shirt, black bowtie and black cummerbund) home this week to be worn at the concert and for band festival.
Due to the ice day and the lack of rehearsals for both the fifth grade and high school bands, tonight’s concert is canceled. The fifth grade concert will take place next week Monday the 18th at 7pm at the High School Auditorium. The Middle School bands will perform after them (note the venue change for the MS concert). The HS concert will be rescheduled for a date we will decide on tomorrow. The HS Toronto meeting will still take place after the MS concert, but at 8:15pm in the HS Auditorium.
