Performances are a team effort and all student participation is necessary to achieve an appropriate balance and blend. If a student is not able to perform at a concert, they must communicate with me as soon as possible to arrange an alternate assignment. Emergencies will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
Please plan on parents, friends and family attending as a live audience. Further guidelines will be given closer to the concert date. If we are not able to have an in-person concert, students will still perform and the concert will be livestreamed/recorded for parents and family members.
