Our Fall Concert will be on Tuesday, November 7 at 6:30pm (6th grade) and 7:30pm (7th and 8th grade) in the FVMS Auditorium. 6th grade students will need to be in the FVMS band room by 6:15pm. 7th and 8th grade students need to be in the band room by 7:00pm. 6th grade students are not required to stay for the 7th/8th grade performance but may do so if they choose. 7th/8th graders may come early to the 6th grade performance.
As outlined in the band handbook, student attendance at all concerts is mandatory since these are considered part of the Participation grade. All excuses for missing a concert must be submitted in writing to Ms. Gorham by a student's parent or guardian no less than 1 week before the event. Emergency situations will be handled at the director's discretion. Even in such situations, a parent note to the director is required at first opportunity. Failure to do so will result in a zero for the concert grade.
Dress for this concert is as follows (as outlined in the band handbook):
Girls- white blouse, black dress pants, dark shoes.
Boys- white dress shirt, tie (any color), black dress pants, dark shoes and socks.
*** NO t-shirts, jeans or tennis shoes! Let’s look polished and professional!
For your planning purposes, the 6th grade performance should last from 6:30-6:50 and The 7th/8th grade performance should last from 7:30-8:15pm.
