• Field commander auditions will be held in March (the week before spring break). Please visit the Marching Band page for audition materials.
With the weather forecast not looking favorable this week, we have an option of plans. Please read this carefully so we are all on the same page.
• If school is closed Wednesday only, we will have our “Winds Wednesday” rehearsal on Thursday at our normal time.
• If school is closed Wednesday AND Thursday, we will plan to have a dress rehearsal at 12:30PM on Thursday. If the weather is still dangerously cold by noon on Thursday, keep an eye on this website so that if we choose to cancel, you will be informed.
• Friday is looking good! However, if school were to be closed on Friday, plan to arrive, in concert uniform, at 11:30AM to load and depart for Cleveland. Percussion needs to arrive by 10AM to load percussion equipment. All students should bring a change of clothes for after the performance/dinner. There will also be food available onsite if you wish to purchase something during the day.
• No students are permitted to walk to school for either of these events. If you have trouble finding a ride, it is imperative that you let Mr. Smith know. Student safety is our first priority.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this week. Hopefully the weather will cooperate. Either way, we’re looking forward to memorable performance experience for our students on Friday. Parents, please review the post regarding parking information so that you don’t miss this fantastic performance.
Due to the impending storm, OMEA has decided to cancel Saturday’s event. This decision was made with student safety in mind. Keep in mind that all of the hard work and preparation has already made you a better musician….it’s not JUST about the performance. We will know more information about refund checks in the coming week. Please be patient with us as we sort through this. We are looking at options to give you all the opportunity to perform your pieces if we can arrange it. Stay safe and enjoy your weekend!
