Great job at Rock the House this Saturday! Thank you to all the parents who volunteered and donated for our awesome homemade nacho booth! Congratulations to the members of Concert Band, Jazz Band, Wind Ensemble, and Winter Drumline on awesome performances! Thank you to the parents and the students who helped transport our equipment to/from the event. Let's see how much more we can improve our pieces for our concert this week and SCSBOA Festival next week!
This Thursday (3/7) the Bands of La Quinta High School will be presenting a special Outdoor Concert at 7:00 p.m. The concert venue is located outside adjacent to the LQHS Library. Chairs will be provided, but feel free to bring your own snacks, lawn chair, or blanket to spread out on the grass! As always, the concert is open to the public and admission is free. Come out for some great music and to support our students before festival next week!
PARENTS: We are asking each family to donate one baked good item for the concert. Parents can drop these off at the booster meeting on Wednesday (3/6) or students can bring these in anytime Thursday (3/7). Hot chocolate and coffee will be available for $1.
ATTIRE: Concert attire is all black. Black, long sleeve, button-up, collared dress shirt. Black slacks (no jeans or stripes). Black belt for pants. Black dress shoes and socks. Girls have the option of wearing an all black dress that goes below the knees. Students that do not have the correct attire on will not be allowed to perform at the concert and their grade will be adjusted according to the grading policy. No exceptions. (i.e. white socks, tennis shoes, short sleeve shirt, jeans...)
Because of the concert on Thursday, Wind Ensemble will have a run-through/sight-reading on Wednesday from 3-4 p.m. Bring clothespins because we will be outside!
BOOSTER MEETING WED AT 6:00 P.M.
This Wednesday we have a general Booster Meeting at 6:00 p.m. in the LQHS Band Room (301). In addition to finalizing details for the concert, we will begin major planning for Brigade Blast!
