Our Fall Concert is THIS WEEK! The concert begins at 7 pm in the PMSS Gym – please note the venue change! Please read below for call times for the students. Admission will be by donation, and we will also be collecting non-perishable food items for the food bank. Beginner Band students are not required to be in attendance, but are welcome to come if they would like to!
TUESDAY OCTOBER 22 – PMSS Fall Concert!
Who: Secondary Concert Band, Secondary Concert Choir, Advanced Elementary Band, student-led groups and solos/duets. (if you would like to add a song to the program, please email Mr Renaud ASAP!)
Choir Dress Rehearsal: 7:15 am in the Choir Room
Concert Set-Up: 2:45-3:45 pm – secondary students please meet in the band room. If everyone helps out, this should only take half an hour! We need to cart all percussion equipment, 1 chair rack full of 18 chairs, 1 stand rack, the choir risers and the piano to the GYM.
Call time: ALL performers should meet in the band and choir rooms at 6:30 pm to warm-up.
Concert start time: 7 pm.
Per our handbook, all students are expected to stay for the duration of the concert. Each group deserves a big and enthusiastic audience to perform for and part of being a musician is supporting the musicians around you by being in their audience.
Students are expected to arrive at call time in Concert Blacks: black dress shirt, black dress pants/leggings, black dress shoes, black dress socks, or something dressy that accomplishes the goal of those suggestions. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email or talk to Mr Renaud. The goal here is the show that as an ensemble we are unified, just as a sports team all wear the same uniform for a game. No t-shirts, jeans or running shoes, please!
(AEB student may wear a black t-shirt as your elementary band shirts aren’t going to be here until the Winter Concert)
**If your family is having financial difficulty and simply can’t afford a new pair of shoes or pants, please let us help. Don’t wait until the night of the concert and please don’t just send your student in the wrong clothes. The PMSS Music Dept has funds available to help out families in need.**
As mentioned in our first parent meeting, it would be great if parents could bring some food with you to share at the concert! Anything would be appreciated. The goal of this concert is to bring us all together as a community and what better way than with some snacks/desserts and some fun music played by our student-musicians! PMSS is supplying coffee and cookies.
We have some parents helping to organize the food table, but if you would be willing to help out with this, please arrive at PMSS by 6:30 – we could use help with accepting admissions at the door and with the food table.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Mr. Renaud: email@example.com or 604-465-7141
