The Spring Concert is HERE!!

by Charles Laux on April 29, 2016

The end of the year is near! Just a few reminders about our upcoming Spring Concert on Tuesday, May 3.  All students should arrive at the Bailey Performance Center between 6:00 and 6:15 PM.  Students will report to Brooker Rehearsal Hall where they will unpack and have their instrument tuned.  If you are unsure where to go, please see the maps and parking information. The concert will start promptly at 7:00 PM beginning with our guest performers, the Palmer Middle School Orchestra.  They are playing some fun pieces!  The entire concert should last about one hour.

What to Bring

  • Instrument (with bow!)
  • Violin/Viola: shoulder rest
  • Cello: Rock stop
  • Sheet music (the concert tunes sheet).  Please contact Dr. Laux if you need to print an additional sheet at home.
  • Note: Student will NOT need their music stands.

What to Wear

  • Students should dress up and look sharp!
  • Please refrain from wearing blue jeans, shorts, or athletic shoes if at all possible.

 

Concert Etiquette

The guidelines for concert etiquette have been posted on this site. Please read and review them with your child.  For some students this will be their first experience at a “classical” music concert, so it is important that everyone knows the behavioral expectations.  I know we are all very excited!!

Final Rehearsal Reminder

  • Pitner, Acworth, and Baker WILL have a shortened practice on Tuesday from 3:30 until 4:30 PM.
  • MCAA WILL NOT have practice on Tuesday and should just arrive to KSU between 6:00 and 6:15 PM

As always, please contact me know if you have any questions!

Musically,

Dr. Laux
