Concert Expectations/Attire

All concerts have a call time of 30 minutes prior to the concert. All concerts are a required part of the class except the Solo and Ensemble Festival, which is extra credit but highly encouraged. If for some reason you have a conflict with any of these dates, please let me know as soon as possible but at least two weeks prior to the performance to allow time to redistribute parts
.
Failure to attend a performance for other than illness or family emergency will result in a two grade drop of your achievement grade unless resolved at least two weeks before the particular concert. All members of the band are important and need to be at all concerts.
