6th Grade and Advanced Bands and Orchestra wear our “Lewis Music” Polo Shirt paired with dark colored pants or skirt (must cover the knees when sitting down). No shorts, no bright colors (red/yellow/orange, etc.) and try to avoid a design. The plainer, the better. The idea is to blend into the group. No performer should stick out because of their attire.
Students will receive their Music Polo Shirt in class on Monday the 26.
Concert Band/Jazz Band/String Orchestra are in Tuxedos and Black Dresses.
Concerts are a performers test. Therefore, concert participation is a huge part of the student’s grade. Students are graded on their attendance, stage etiquette, and audience etiquette. Students are required to attend the ENTIRE concert. Students who leave early will not get full participation grade for the concert. The concert should be no more than an hour in length.
Both evening concerts will have a silent auction to help us raise funds for the music program. Be prepared to bid on items such as:
- Tickets for Hornblower Cruises
- Tickets to the National Comedy Theatre
- Afternoon Tea at Shakespeare’s Corner Shoppe
- Lunch at Shakespeare Pub
- Gift Certificate to Wine Vault and Bistro
- Expressions Dance and Movement Center and more!
We will also be selling flowers, candy, soda and water at each concert.
