Updated & Final Schedule for Tonight’s Recital

No real changes were made. Here is the final schedule for tonight’s recital. Schedules will be posted near performing spaces but not actual physical programs will be handed out tonight. Both PDFs below contain all info regarding the event.

Recital Night Schedule version 3 

Recital Night Basic Program

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

Students & Parents, our Solo & Ensemble Recital is Wednesday, February 27 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 approx. 110 performances throughout the course of the evening! We will have performances happening simultaneously in six separate spaces: 1) PAC, 2) Choir Room, 3) Media Center, 4) Classroom E10, 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 (25 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.

Recital Night Rescheduled to Friday, March 1st 6-8pm

Our solo & ensemble recital night is being rescheduled to Friday, March 1st from 6-8pm. The big shift OTHER than the date is that we will no longer be using the commons classroom as one of our piano rooms and instead will be using the Media Center space (Colorguard is using the commons to practice).

Recital Night Schedule version 2

Please make sure piano accompanists are updated on the changes. If they can’t make it, then you’ll have to go unaccompanied. Its not ideal but its better than nothing.

Here is the original message that went out a week ago regarding the event itself…

Solo & Ensemble Recital Reschedule

Dear Parents & Students, We will be rescheduling tonight’s solo & ensemble recital night to either Thursday or Friday depending on facility/accompanist availability.

This is an important event not only because it is an important part to our curricular focus in band, but also because it provides the only prep experience for those performing at the solo and ensemble festival on Saturday at West Linn HS.

If you have a piano accompanist, please keep them in the loop. I will post more info once it becomes available. I expect to know within the next few hours what the plan will be.

Basketball Band Playoff Game Tuesday

Band Members – The boys basketball team has made the playoffs and we are looking to put together a basketball band for Tuesday, February 26th. Come support our team and school culture by contributing your talents! Call time is 6:10pm and Game Time is 7:00pm.

The girls team also made the playoffs however their game is on Wednesday, during our solo and ensemble recital night. Because of this we will not be putting a band together for that playoff game. That is also a heads up that our parking lot might be a little busier than normal for this Wednesday evening’s performance.
