Dear Band Students & Parents, I am making a big shift with our Winter Concert. There has been an additional performance added to the same day, as well as tickets that will be sold. Please read carefully.
We’ve had seating issues with our Auditorium at SHS, which holds 275 people. Last year we tried to mitigate this for our Finale Concert by moving it to the Sherwood Center for the Performing Arts, which at the time of our performance held approx. 400 seats. At that event we were reduced to standing room only and the space turned into a sauna as I’m sure many of you remember.
For the December 7th concert we are going to have 2 showings. There will be a matinee performance at 5:00pm and an evening performance at 7:30pm. We will feed the band members in between performances. The evening will progress as follows:
4:30pm – Student Call time in Concert Attire
5:00pm – Matinee performance – Bowmen Band, Concert Band, Wind Ensemble
6:30pm – Dinner provided to students through boosters & ticket sales.
7:30pm – Evening performance – Jazz Band, Bowmen Band, Concert Band, Wind Ensemble
9:15pm – Approx. Concert Over
Tickets – To be sold online (soon) and at the door. We will sell up to 250 tickets per show:
- Matinee (5:00pm) Price is $7 per ticket
- Evening (7:30pm) Price is $10 per ticket
We want everyone to be able to attend so financial/ticket assistance is provided. Please contact Mr. Stai regarding assistance. Proceeds will go toward band program and dinner.
