Many of our families have children in both concerts, so I’ve decided to include all the details in one place to hopefully avoid confusion. As a reminder, we are doing our concerts differently this year. Thursday, December 8 @ 7:00 p.m. will be our 5th-12th grade band and choir concert. Tuesday, December 13 @ 7:00 p.m. will be our elementary musical featuring all students in preschool through 4th grade. Both concerts will be held at Covenant Life Church on Blue Road between Cadillac and Lake City. Please contact the school office if you need more detailed directions.
Band / Choir Concert Details:
Arrival times – I will be sending a note home with confirmed student arrival times as we get closer to the concert. I will likely have band students arrive at 6:20 p.m. and choir students at 6:30 p.m.
Uniforms – All 5th – 12th grade band students will be bringing their uniforms home sometime before the concert. We are in need of more help doing alterations. Please contact me a.s.a.p. if you are able to help hem sleeves and pant legs. They are already pinned. When your student brings home their uniforms, please press them carefully if needed.
Preparation – We only have 5 rehearsals remaining before our concert. Yikes! Please remind your band children to be practicing their concert songs. Thank you.
Elementary Musical Details:
Arrival times – Official arrival times will be coming home shortly before the concert. Preschool, Young Fives, and Kindergarten students will likely need to arrive by 6:45 p.m. First through fourth graders will likely need to arrive by 6:30 p.m. in order to allow time to get into costumes and do last minute preparations.
What to wear – Preschool through second grade students need to wear their class color Heritage pride shirt and nice pants. No jeans, please. Third and fourth graders will put their bell costumes on at the church. I will bring the costumes to the church. They need to have a red, green, or black long sleeve shirt and pants or leggings to wear under the bell costume. They will also need to wear dress shoes. No tennis shoes, please. The shirts and pants do not have to be the same color.
Preparation – All third and fourth graders with speaking parts, or singing solos, really need to have their parts memorized by now. Please review these with your children.
Props – Each 3rd and 4th grader needs to have a handheld bell to ring. I have had very limited success finding bells through the Town Crier announcements. Please try to find a bell for your own child. I have a few, but not many at all. I also need one more wooden rocking chair.
The students have been hard at work making preparations for their concerts. We are looking forward to sharing lots of wonderful music with all of you as we celebrate our Savior’s birth! We welcome you to come join us for two great nights of music!
Please feel free to call contact me with any questions.
