Odessa Middle School Band Program

Fall 2006 Band Concert

October 23, 2006

Dear Middle School Band Parents,

The Middle School Fall Band Concert will be Tuesday November 7, 2006. The concert will begin at 7:00 pm in the Middle School Gym. The concert this year will feature only the Middle School Bands.

All of the students will be required to attend the concert and it will be part of their grade. The students will also need to wear nice clothes. We prefer dress slacks and a button up shirt (a tie would be very nice) for the young men, and a dress (slacks and a blouse for clarinet players) for the young ladies. The most important issue is that the students look as nice a possible for the concert. Please avoid wearing jeans if it is at all possible.

The students must stay for the entire concert. No student should leave until the 8th Grade band has finished their performance. It is disrespectful to the performers in the other bands for you and your child to leave after their performance. However, I know that some situations may arise that you are unsure about so if you have a question or concern, please contact us at 816-633-1500. We will be glad to discuss some options with you.

The 6th Grade Band will need to report to the concert at 6:15 pm. The 7th and 8th Grade Bands do not need to report to the concert until 6:30 pm. Because it is a band concert only the 7th and 8th grade bands will be seated in the gym while the 6th grade band performs and the 6th grade will sit together as a band while the 7th and 8th grade bands perform.

The concert will be finished around 8:00-8:15 pm depending on the time needed to set up each band. We would also appreciate anyone who would be willing to help clean up the gym following the concert.

We look forward to seeing all of you at our first concert this year on November 7, 2006 at 7:00 pm in the Middle School Gym.
