Hello Howe music parents,
Tuesday and Thursday are our World Tour performances this week! PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR CHILD BRINGS BACK A FILLED-OUT PERMISSION FORM TO ME TOMORROW.
We will be playing at Clearbrook Elementary on Tuesday morning from 9 - 10am, and at John MacLure and Ten-Broeck on Thursday. As we are taking over 100 students, we need 9-10 parents at each event. Please, if you can spare the time, let me know which days you are available (Tuesday morning and/or Thursday all day); just reply to this message!
It is very important that Howe musicians be doing extra practice this week to ensure that they are comfortable with and ready to perform! We will be setting up at Clearbrook on Monday night, and, for those who are singing solos, doing a sound-check.
We will have Concert Band Monday morning at 7:30 as usual. All other 7:30am and 2pm music classes are cancelled this week.
Here’s your need-to-know list:
1. The Howe World Tour 2017 will be taking place the morning of June 6th (Clearbrook Elem.), and all-day June 8th (John MacLure & Ten-Broeck).
2. On June 6th, students should be dropped off directly at Clearbrook Elementary (3614 Clearbrook Rd.) at 8:15am. Attendance will be taken there and reported back to the school. We will walk back to Howe Middle after the show, and will be back around 11am. Students can be picked up after school from Howe.
3. On June 8th, students should come to Howe Middle for 8am. We will take a bus from there for our shows that day, and will be back at Howe by 2:25pm for regular pick-up.
4. Students should wear dark pants and shoes. T-shirts will be provided and handed out at Clearbrook Elementary on Tuesday morning.
5. Students should make sure they have their instruments and sheet music for each day of performances.
6. Pizza lunch will be provided on Thursday, June 8th.
For your information, our year-end concert will be on June 15th, 7pm, at Howe Middle. We will also be doing an afternoon show on Friday, June 16th, at 1pm. All family and friends are welcome!
We are very excited for next week! Thanks for your endless support!
