HMS Band Winter Concert for HMS & HES Student Body
The 6th Grade Beginning Band and the 7th & 8th Grade Combined Band first performance will be at 8:30 am @ Northeast State Center for Performing Arts. The bands will perform for the HMS Student Body at 8:30 am and the HES Student Body around 9:30 am. Students are to wear our HMS Band T’s & jeans. Concert is free of charge and open to the public.
Tuesday, December 6th (Evening)
HMS Band Winter Concert for Family and Friends
The night performance for friends and family will begin at 6:30pm at Northeast State. The students will need to wear their HMS Band Polos and khaki pants (or skirts for the ladies, of course meeting dress code). The 6th grade students will need to arrive at 6:15 SHARP. Please be on time! The 7th and 8th grade students will need to arrive at Northeast State at 6:50pm that evening. Please be on time! This assures we have time to get everyone on stage and warm-up before the concert begins. PLEASE be respectful of the other group on stage will you are waiting to get on stage or as you are leaving!
The concerts are a requirement for a grade for the second nine weeks grading period and any absence will have to be discussed and excused PRIOR to the concerts. Any unexcused absence will result in a zero for the performance grade for the nine weeks counting 25% of the final grade.
It has been a great school year and I am looking forward to wrapping up 2016 with excellent concerts and a very successful fundraiser distribution!
THANKS for your support and helping the HMS Band!
As always, if there are any questions, comments, or concerns please contact the HMS Band Office at 423.354.1513 or firstname.lastname@example.org
