*It is asked that all performers stay for the entire concert. It is only polite and good concert manners. Only students excused in advance may leave before the end of the concert. Please treat other performers as you would like to be treated.
*SIT WITH YOUR FAMILY when not performing. Complaints have been received about large groups of students sitting in the back of the gym making TOO MUCH NOISE while other groups are performing. You are expected to use your BEST CONCERT MANNERS, students.
*Students are asked to be on their best behavior while not performing. There is NO reason to talk while another group is performing. Please only leave the gym between groups unless it is an emergency.
JHCB, MS Choir, & 6th Band – Gentlemen are to wear nice pants, dress shoes, shirt and tie. No jeans or tennis shoes. Ladies are to wear a dress, skirt and blouse, or nice pants outfit. I respectfully ask that skirts cover your knees when seated. Please look your best
HS band and choir – Gentlemen need to wear black dress pants, black socks, and black shoes. Gentlemen are also to be wearing a long-sleeved black collared dress shirt. Ladies are to dress in concert black as well. You may wear pants or skirt. The traditional skirt is floor-length. A simple gold or silver necklace, or pearls are a perfectly acceptable accessory. Keep earrings small and non-distracting. Look classy.
If, per chance, severe weather is imminent, watch your regular TV station, and/or check the band web page (www.fairbanksband.org), blog (www.fhsbando.blogspot.com), or Twitter (www.twitter.com/fairbanksband) or check your INTANT ALERT. Students SHOULD know of any cancellations before school is over, but if it gets bad after school, these are your methods of information.
Break a leg! Be precise, be passionate, have fun, and MAKE MUSIC.
The 2nd graders are learning about quarter notes (ta) and eighth notes (ti-ti). Being the holiday season we ‘decked the halls’ with our rhythms!
