Parents wishing to attend the performance in Eugene – Please read this important info from our association:

The concert hour performances during the OMEA session are not advertised as public performances. To do so brings with it some additional charges from the Hult Center (ushers, ticketing, etc.) Instead, the performances are officially for conference attendees.

If your families wish to attend, they may of course do so free of charge. They simply need to show up at the Hult Center and walk into Soreng Theatre; no tickets required. Please ask your families to NOT call the Hult Center box office and ask for tickets. 

SHS Band photo galleries

Pre-order prints are being delivered to students this week from the SHS Band Portrait Day. Online galleries are now available. Prints and personal use digital downloads can be purchased directly through the website.

Wind Ensemble Premiere Performance for All State Conference

Dear Wind Ensemble Students & Parents,

I’ve made one important adjustment to our itinerary on Tuesday, January 14th. There is no bus available to take us to GFU that afternoon at the timeline that works for both bus departure and our rehearsal performance schedule.  Therefore I am asking students to arrange for transportation after school to GFU.

Parents – If anyone is available to either help carpool students without transportation and/or help move some of our large instruments to the site, please contact Mr. Stai.

Student Itinerary:

  • 3:30 – Arrive at GFU and setup on Stage & Warmup
  • 4:15 – Full Rehearsal in Bauman w/Antiphonal Brass
  • 5:00 – Premier Performance Runthrough
  • 5:40 – Concert Over – Cleanup & Dismissed

All friends and family are welcome to attend this premier performance. We will only be performing this music set two times (January 14 at GFU and on January 17 in Eugene).

We have a wonderful & reputable program prepared and are encouraging our membership to recruit an audience from local community members who appreciate classical music and might not normally come to an SHS band concert or might be deterred by the lack of space at our SHS PAC. Please help us fill seats with enthusiastic music connoisseurs and patrons. There is no charge for this event as we were able to get the auditorium that afternoon free of charge.

Our Concert Program:
March of the Mogul Emperors – From the Crown of India (Op.66), Edward Elgar (1912)
Colorful Clouds Chasing the Moon, Simon Yau Yuen-hing (traditional Chinese folksong)
Smoulder, Andrea Reinkemeyer (2019)
Finale from Symphony No. 1, Vasily Kallinkov (1895) – Accompanied by brass students from PSU & OSU

Summary:

What: Sherwood HS Wind Ensemble – All State  Premier Performance
Location: Bauman Auditorium – George Fox University
Concert Start Time: 5:00pm (Student Call Time 3:30pm)

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Wind Ensemble Itinerary January 14th at GFU

Dear Wind Ensemble Students & Parents,

I’ve made some adjustments to our Tuesday, January 14 schedule. In order to get a rehearsal with Pat Vandehey and the PSU Brass in conjunction with Larry Johnson and the OSU brass, we will take a bus to George Fox University after school that day for a rehearsal followed by a premier performance.

All friends and family are welcome to attend this premier performance. We will only be performing this music set two times (January 14 at GFU and on January 17 in Eugene).

Student Itinerary is as follows:

3:10 – Load Bus & Depart for GFU
3:30 – W.E. Setup on Stage & Warmup
4:15 – Full Rehearsal in Bauman w/Antiphonal Brass
5:00 – Premier Performance Runthrough
5:40 – Concert Over – Cleanup & Dismissed

There is no charge for this event as we were able to get the auditorium that afternoon free of charge.

SPE Students – This timeline has already been communicated to SPE Staff. I expect there will be no SPE rehearsal that day for Wind Ensemble students.

Please contact Mr. Stai if you have any questions.
