Rehearsals and Performances

Rehearsals and Performances

Music is a team sport on which we rely on all students to be present to have the most successful performance. There are many individuals involved in each band within the program and we consider each member as an important and valuable part of that team.  After all of the work the students put into preparation for performances, it is extremely important for all involved that each student be present and participate in each performance.  Therefore, it is a requirement for all students to participate in each performance for their group. Performances are not an option!

For a performance to be excused, the student must notify the director in writing at least 2 weeks before a concert or 2 days before a rehearsal by sending a note or email from a parent/guardian with contact information included. These will be handled on a case by case basis. We go out of our way to work with parents and individuals to avoid conflicts.  For the benefit of all of the students in the program please do the same.

In the unfortunate event that a student is unable to attend a rehearsal or performance, they will need to complete the alternate assignment. The alternate assignment information can be found as a sub-link to this page or clink on the links below.
