Preparations for the Concert & Assessments

Our Pre-Assessment Concert is around the corner, set for Tuesday, February 15th. A few reminders.

First, students are required to stay after school for rehearsal. The rehearsal schedule is as follows:

3:00-4:00 Philharmonic Orchestra
4:00-4:30 Symphonic Orchestra
4:30-5:00 Concert Orchestra
5:00-6:00 Optional Dinner (sign up and pay for Dominos/Listranis dinner here by Friday 2/11)
6:00-6:45 Hospitality/mingle with Cooper students in Langley Hall; Black Box entertainment
7:00-8:30 Concert
8:30ish Class of 2022 Photo immediately upon conclusion of concert

Please also sign up to assist with bringing food for our hospitality tables at the SignUp Genius here. As of February 9, we are particularly in need of savory treat donations such as cheese and crackers. Thanks for helping to keep our hungry students and families fed and happy!

We will have boxes of Krispy Kreme donuts for sale beginning at 3:25 pm on concert day (until they are sold out). Pre-orders for coffee can be placed by Thursday, February 10th for $14 per bag (order form and info is here), or limited quantities can be purchased on concert day for $15 per bag.

Please note that students must wear full formalwear; Tuesday’s concert serves literally as a dress rehearsal for assessments. Assessments will take place on Saturday, March 5th at Marshall HS. Symphonic Orchestra students must arrive by 9:15 am and should wrap up around 10:50 am; Philharmonic Orchestra students must arrive by 3:25 pm and should wrap up around 5:00 pm. Formalwear is required and will factor into our ratings so please be sure to have all parts of your formalwear.

Tuesday’s concert will be recorded and a link will be provided to students and families approximately 1 week later.
