Weekly Update 12/7- 12/11
This is your weekly MUSIC DEPARTMENT update!
It’s a Concert Week! There’s a lot to do in not a lot of time! (But you knew that already, right?)
We are trying a new system of offering tickets to limit seating as we still wish to be cautious about COVID-19. If you have not already, rsvp at the following website: https://www.bakercountybands.org/events
The concert will also be available virtually.
Please be considerate when rsvp’ing. Taking more than two spots might mean other music department members may not be able to bring their family to watch them.

Wind Ensemble Attire
Men- I need to apologize up front because I realize now this is not in the Band Handbook— however, in addition to your tux shirt and pants, you need to purchase this vest as a part of your concert attire. I recommend taking advantage of Black Friday Savings. S.H. Churchill & Co. Men's 4 Piece Vest Set, with Bow Tie, Neck Tie & Pocket Hankie https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077MMF11K/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fabc_MOAPFbWQNEEQQ?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Ladies- if you haven’t already, you need to purchase your Corelli Dress from Southeastern Apparel. Do this soon so that in case there are any errors you can exchange your dress for the right size. At this time, the band is not planning to do a group order. If you need help with sizing (first ask your parent) you can ask Wendy or Allie, and they should be able to help you. https://sepapparel.com/corelli-concert-choir-dress.html
If anyone has difficulty acquiring any of these items, please reach out to Mr. Moore immediately.
