Dear 6th grade parents and students,
Thursday February 27th: Music in our Schools Concert
A reminder that the 6th grade band students will be performing in the Music in Our Schools Concert at 7:00 p.m. at the HS Concert Hall. Students should report to the HS band room by 6:00 p.m. Concert Dress is all black.
Friday, March 6th: IGSMA contest for the FULL BAND
GENESEO IS THE ONLY SCHOOL WITH THEIR BEGINNING BAND AT THIS CONTEST!!!
Students will be performing at IGSMA contest, which is being held at Sherrard Jr./Sr. HS. The 6th grade band’s performance is at 7:30 p.m. in the Sherrard gymnasium. They will be performing their music from the Music in our Schools concert in a full band setting.
This is NOT FOR SOLOS as the 6th graders only do those at recital. This is a contest with ratings and parents are welcome to attend as they would any regular concert. We will be riding buses to Sherrard after school (more details to follow). We will need permission slips from students for this event (more details to follow).
Students should plan to wear their concert attire (same as above) to school that day. If desired, they may eat dinner in the cafeteria at the concessions between bands, so they will want to have enough money for concessions or they can bring a sack dinner. As parents are welcome to attend contest, many students will get rides from parents back home. Those riding the bus back can be picked up from the middle school immediately after their performance.
The students have no obligations on the following Saturday
