This coming Friday morning, May 12th, Buckhorn High School will host its annual Senior Awards Day Ceremony for which our band provides support. Our seniors will, of course, be involved otherwise, but all 9-11 grade band students will need to come to school in their concert attire for this event. Students should come to the band room AT 8:00 AM (or immediately after bus arrival) – we will need the entire next hour to get all chairs, stands, and percussion equipment moved to the upper level of the Gold Gym, situated, and warmed up in time for the event to begin at 9:00.
Students are welcome to bring a change of clothes for after the ceremony. We will have regular 4th block band, at which time our warm-up and tuning will be very important. The concert call time for students is as close to 5:00 as possible, on stage at Huntsville High School’s auditorium. I encourage students to carpool.
Finally, Graduation itself will be on Tuesday, May 23rd at 7:00 PM at the VBC. Students need to arrive at 6:00 PM. We will NOT be going to the morning practice like years past since underclassmen have exams. There will be a graduation ceremony finishing before us that evening so please account for heavy traffic and difficulty parking. If you are coming to park and stay, please be prepared for $5-$10 parking – OR – you may drop your student off near the Arena entrance of the VBC. We will transport instruments by trailer which will be down the alley to the left of the Arena entrance. Students will wear tuxes/dresses. More to come later.
