Our Spring Concert is NEXT WEEK! The concert begins at 7 pm in the PMSS Multipurpose Room. 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.
WEDNESDAY MARCH 11 – PMSS Spring Concert
Who: Secondary Concert Band, Secondary Concert Choir, Advanced Elementary Band, Beginner Elementary Band, student-led groups and solos/duets. (if you would like to add a song to the program, please email Mr Renaud ASAP)
SCHEDULE (please note: band classes run as usual this day):
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, both chair racks full of 18 chairs, 2 stand racks, the choir risers, sound system, and the piano to the MPR.
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 UNIFORM.
SECONDARY STUDENTS: 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.
ELEMENTARY STUDENTS: PMSS Elementary Band T-Shirt, black DRESS pants, black DRESS socks, black DRESS shoes.
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!
**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.**
Students not in proper uniform may be prohibited from performing.
There will be NO potluck at this concert. Instead, our Music Parents Council has decided to offer a concession of pre-packaged snacks (chips, cookies, rice crispie squares, etc), as well as bottles of water and cups of coffee. All concession items will be $1.00 each.
This concert will feature a 50/50 Draw with tickets for cash purchase. Please bring those loonies and toonies so you can get in on the fun! Tickets will only be sold to people 19+ years of age.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Mr. Renaud. The students have been working extremely hard this term and we cannot wait to show you all we’ve been preparing! Please invite your family and friends to come and enjoy this fun night of music staged by our awesome student-musicians.
