Solo & Ensemble Recital – Thursday, February 26th – Important Info for Students & Parents

Students & Parents, our Solo & Ensemble Recital is this Thursday, February 26th at SHS at 6:00pm. All Bowmen Band, Concert Band, and Wind Ensemble members will be performing a solo or an ensemble piece at this recital. This will be a major event as we have approximately 100 performances throughout the course of the evening! We will have performances happening simultaneously in four separate spaces: 1) PAC, 2) Choir Room, 3) Commons Classroom, and 4) Classroom E11.

Students are responsible for:

  1. Knowing Their Performance Location & Order. (Order List Posted in Band Room)
  2. Communicating performance location & order to parents.
  3. Warming up prior to performance in the band room.
  4. Listening to at least 4 other SHS solo or ensemble performances.
  5. Wearing Concert Attire.
  6. Practicing & preparing their music to a high level so that it is enjoyable for the audience members.

Parents – It will be a great evening with lots of student-prepared music. CHECK WITH YOUR STUDENT SO YOU KNOW WHAT ROOM THEY ARE PERFORMING IN & WHAT ORDER THEY ARE PERFORMING. Each performance length is different; some students have 3-minute performances, others go as long as 6.5 minutes. Good advice would be to check in with your performance area early to see where they are at on the schedule.

Don’t think of this as a traditional concert. Think of this as more of a musical art gallery. You can sample from room to room and come and go at an appropriate time that works for your schedule. Please enter and exit performing spaces only during transitions. It will still be a formal performance setting, just more along the lines of a true Solo & Ensemble Festival.
