*If you are on tear-down crew, please stay and help fold chairs and move equipment. Bonus points are available. A set-up crew is also needed at 5:30. Sign up on Mr. Keller’s office window to receive credit.
*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.
If, per chance, severe weather is imminent, watch your regular TV station, and/or check the choir web page (www.tcoopermusic.org), or Twitter (www.twitter.com/fairbankschoir) 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.
