Music for All Concert Festival Information

I want to congratulate all our band members on their outstanding performances last week at the ETSBOA Area Concert Festival!  We received all superior ratings (the top rating) for all bands. All three ensembles performed wonderful programs. We continue to raise the bar very high for our band members and they continue to strive to reach it! This is fantastic!

Thank you to all our parents who made the time to attend the performances and support our band members! I know the students appreciated this so very much! Also, thank you parents for being so diligent about picking your children up in a timely manner after each performance.

I have attached the itinerary for this Thursday’s trip to Atlanta to the Music for All Regional Concert Festival. Our band is one of eight high school bands from across the Southeast to be invited to perform at this prestigious event. We were required to submit recordings last summer  from last year’s bands’ performances to be selected to perform. This is also one of the reasons we changed our fall schedule and did not go to St. Louis. I knew the festival costs were expensive plus transportation and lunch along with many hours of instructional preparations. This is an incredible event and one that will help make our program resume even more attractive for future events.

On Thursday morning, please ensure your child is at OHS by 6:00am. It is important we depart before all the buses begin to arrive.  We should return at approximately midnight.

Please also ensure that all performance attire is cleaned and pressed including their tux and white tux shirt.

Bravo for All your support throughout this year!
