SHERWOOD Performer Schedule – March 7

  • Large Brass Ensembles have been moved to the Auditorium (Not in Choir Room as indicated on Schedule)

DON’T FORGET  YOUR INSTRUMENT OR MUSIC (And Adjudicator)

GROW – SHARE YOUR TALENT – BE CLASSY – HAVE FUN – SUPPORT EACH OTHER!

March 7 Solo & Ensemble Information, Reminders, and Good Ideas

  • Show up to West Linn HS about 45 minutes ahead of time  so that you can:
    • Figure out parking, which isn’t ideal out there.
    • Warm up in the Commons/Cafeteria Area
    • Find your room and be there 10 minutes before you perform.
    • There is NO REGISTRATION TABLE for this event. Follow the signs in the hallways.
    • Room Name defines where the kids are playing. Consult the maps for where rooms are located or follow signs when on site.
  • Make sure you bring an original copy of music (pencil mark free) for the adjudicator to read off of. (Do not bring a photocopy unless it’s an emergency).
  • Coordinate with your accompanist. Make sure you are on the same page with your performance schedule.
  • Performance scores will be posted anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours after the performance.
  • Wear Attire that is Classy (Err on the side of formal).
  • Make the performing space (stands, chairs) comfortable for your needs.
  • Optional – Tune to the piano in the room IF you are good at making tuning adjustments and ONLY IF you have plenty of time (your solo or ensemble piece is not too long).
  • Another Good Idea – Once you are done performing and are at peace with the world. Stay and listen to other musicians in your performing area, you can learn a lot and will be amazed by what other musicians are doing in our region.
  • ALSO – go listen to and support and clap for other Sherwood soloists and ensembles performing. Use the attached schedule to find them!

GROW – SHARE YOUR TALENT – BE CLASSY – HAVE FUN – SUPPORT EACH OTHER!

Recital Night Schedule for Monday, March 2nd 6:00-8:00PM

Recital Night Schedule PDF

For Anyone New to SHS Band – “The Band Recital Night is a Band Concert… sort of.”

Students & Parents, our Solo & Ensemble Recital is Monday, March 2nd  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 95 performances throughout the course of the evening! We will have performances happening simultaneously in six separate spaces throughout Sherwood High School: 1) PAC, 2) Choir Room, 3) Commons Classroom, 4) Media Center, 5) Classroom E13, and 6) Classroom E14.

Students are responsible for:

  • Knowing Their Performance Location & Order.
  • Communicating performance location & order to parents.
  • Warming up prior to performance in the band room.
  • Listening to at least 6 other SHS solo or ensemble performances throughout the evening.
  • Wearing Concert Attire.
  • Practicing & preparing their music to a high level so that it is enjoyable for the audience members.
  • Signing up & participating in either the event setup process after school (30 minutes)  OR the cleanup process after the event (20 minutes).

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 9 minutes. Good advice would be to check in with your performance area early to see where they are at on the schedule. There will be performance orders and numbers posted outside each room indicating which musician(s) is/are currently performing.

PLEASE DO NOT THINK OF THIS AS A TRADITIONAL CONCERT. THINK OF THIS AS MORE OF A MUSICAL ART GALLERY. You are allowed to 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.
