WHAT Perry High School Symphonic Winds earned the right to participate at State Contest by earning highest honors at District Contest. The goals of this concert are to prepare our high school students for State Contest, as well as give our 8th grade students the opportunity to perform while we are preparing for our own contest on May 13 or May 14. I will communicate the exact time of our contest performance as soon as the information arrives. (Reminder, we also perform at the Annual Bands in the Round concert on May 5.)

WHEN Wednesday, April 27. Students meet at PERRY HIGH SCHOOL (not Pfeiffer) before 6:30pm, in the band area, for attendance. Signs will direct students where to meet for attendance, place instrument cases, etc… Students should enter through the main Perry High School doors. Students will not be able to enter Pfeiffer or Edison for any reason, including forgotten instrument, music, etc…

UNIFORM Students wear black dress pants, black socks, and the black Perry Band Shirt.
