Winter Performances – Timeslots, Uniform Reminders

Our Winter Performance Series will be next week on December 17th. This will be the culmination of many weeks’ worth of hard work, perseverance and dedication. The students now have the opportunity to show off all they have learned and be celebrated for their musical accomplishments this term!

This will not be a traditional “concert” per se – students will come in through the Band Room exterior door, one class at a time, perform during their timeslot, have it recorded, then leave through the front entrance. This will ensure no two classes will interact so that the “concert” is just as safe as our classes we do every day. I will send out a final polished “Concert” recording a few days after the performance.

The performance timeslots are as follows. Students should arrive to PMSS a few minutes prior to the start of their timeslot and enter the Band Room exterior door (at the back of PMSS). There, they should set up their instruments and warm-up. Then they will come to the MPR to perform. After their performance, they will pack up and leave through the front entrance.

Concert Uniform: now is a great time to ensure that you have all the aspects of your child’s uniform for their performance. Please don’t wait until it is too late if you are unable to afford new clothes – the music department has funds available to help you! Students not in uniform may be prohibited from performing.

Elementary Bands:

  • Black PMSS Music T-shirts (distributed later this week or early next week)
  • Black DRESS pants (jeans or sweat pants are not suitable)
  • Black DRESS socks
  • Black DRESS shoes (runners, converse, etc are not acceptable)

Secondary Musicians:

  • Black DRESS shirt (minimum ¾ length sleeves)

As stated in our course outlines and music handbooks, performances also function as term exams – participation is essential. As well, we are a team, and EVERY player is needed for the performance.
