• Dear Fourth Grade Parents/Guardians,

    The 4th grade band will have their annual Spring Concert in the CH High School Auditorium on Tuesday, May 14th at 6:00PM. All 4th grade band members are expected to participate in the concert.

                Students are expected to dress up, but they do not have to wear black and white like the 5th grade students. The stage will be very hot so students should try to avoid long sleeves or heavy clothing. Also, the 4th grade students will not have a band concert during school for the student body.

    The 4th & 5th grade bands & choruses will share this evening concert. Please arrive by 6:00PM for the beginning of the concert. The 5th grade band will go first and the 4th grade band will perform second at approximately 6:20PM. Students will sit in the audience with their parents to watch the 5th grade portion of the concert. Students should have their music with them and should keep their instruments in their cases. Once the 5th graders are done performing I will lead the 4th graders to a hallway behind the stage where they will put their instruments together.

    In the past, we have had problems with 4th grade students being disruptive during the 5th grade performance. Please be sure to be courteous to both performing groups and keep the noise in the hallways and commons to a minimum because the sound travels into the auditorium. Students should not be in the commons unattended during any part of the concert.

    Students will be allowed to perform solos at the concert. In order to perform a solo at the concert, students must have turned in all of the practice journals for the 3rd & 4th marking periods and must perform the solo for me twice on two different days before May 8th. The solo needs to be performance quality both times.

    Please see the back of your child’s practice journal for information on how students can practice with recordings of their concert music on SmartMusic for free. Practicing with these recordings will help students to prepare for the concert.

                There is no admission fee and tickets are not required. If you have any questions or concerns please email me at jkemerer@chsd1.org or call me at the elementary school at 344-8506 before 8:00AM or after 2:30PM. Please sign the form below and have your child return it to me so I can be assured that you have received this.

     

    Best Regards,

    Mrs. J. Kemerer

     


     

     

    Dear Fifth Grade Parents/Guardians,

I would like for the band members to meet on the high school stage by 5:15PM to get prepared for the concert. The in-school concert will be at CHES in the morning at 8:30AM. All 5th grade band members are expected to participate in the concerts. If your son/daughter cannot attend the concerts please send me a signed note before the concerts.

    Concert dress for the morning AND evening concert is going to be black pants or skirts and a white or black shirt, or as close as possible. Please do not feel obligated to buy a new outfit just for this concert. The stage gets very hot so students should wear short sleeves if possible and should avoid wearing heavy sweaters.

                The 4th & 5th grade bands & choruses will share this concert. The 5th grade band will go first, 4th grade band will perform second, and then the choruses.
