Otsego 8th Grade Band

Band A Thon Information Friday, November 22, 2019 4:00pm – 5:00pm performance time

Dear OMS 8th Grade Band Parents:

As you know, our “Band-A-Thon” performance is next Friday, November 22, 2019 from 4:00pm – 5:00pm. This is a 24 hour event for our High School Band, and the 8th Graders have the privilege of opening this concert with an hour of their own music! We will need to bring equipment down to the OMS gymnasium at 3:05pm. We will warm up at 3:41pm and start our part of the extravaganza promptly at 4:00pm. We will conclude at 5:00pm. If any 8th Graders stay beyond 5:00pm or come back to listen to events on Saturday, they are more than welcome, but it must be in the gymnasium ONLY. 8th graders are not allowed in any other part of the building or outside of it, unless they are accompanied by you checking out our bake sale, silent auction, and other Band Booster activities in the hall. The students should not join in with the High School students in the cafeteria, or resting rooms. Thank you for your help in this matter!

Mrs. Grove will be putting together a jazz ensemble and regular ensembles that will perform from 5:00pm – 5:30pm. Please check with your student to see if they are involved with this.

We are looking forward to our first “sit down” performance of the year! Sincerely,

Mr. Piersma and Mrs. Grove
