Performing Arts Update 1/29- 2/5
Honor Band Rehearsals Monday & Tuesday
We have our first and second honor band rehearsal on Monday 1/30 from 6-9PM and Tuesday 1/31 from 6-8:30PM at Whitney HS. Here is what students need to do to be ready for the rehearsals:
- Ensure they have all of the correct, updated parts based on their audition placement.
- Bring instrument, music (IN A BINDER), and a pencil
- Arrive 15-20 minutes before the start of the practice having already eaten dinner!
- Have a ride scheduled to pick them up on time. Students will be leaving exactly on time and rides should get there 5 minutes before to pick up so that nobody is waiting around after rehearsal.
See you tomorrow night at Whitney!
Family Dinner Night @ Panda Express & Coldstones Wednesday, 2/1 from 4-9PM!
Join us for our monthly dinner night at Panda Express and Coldstones Creamery across from the Cerritos Mall on Wednesday! Have some delicious orange chicken and follow up with a sugar rush to support our program!
Flyers are attached and will be printed Monday!
Solo Festival Performance Times
Today is the last day to fill out the google form if you have a time conflict and need a specific time slot for our solo festival on Saturday 2/4. Times will be posted Monday evening on google classroom!
If you need the time request link, it is below! Again, the link is only if you need a specific time slot!
A reminder that students will need to arrive approximately 20-30 minutes prior to their time slot, and will be packed up and ready to leave 15 minutes after the start time. For example, if the time slot is 10AM, your student should arrive between 9:30- 9:40AM and will be ready to pick up at 10:15AM.
Colorguard Saturday Practice 12-4PM, Sat 2/4
Just a friendly reminder that we will be having a colorguard practice from 12-4PM on Saturday at Tetzlaff! Bring a water and a snack but plan to eat before you arrive as we won't have a full length "meal break"
CHS Colorguard Showcase on Sunday 2/5
We will be having our first performance of the year at Cerritos HS on Sunday as part of their showcase performance. Costumes will likely not arrive before the performance so students should plan to wear all black (black leggings and a black shirt) unless we get lucky!
Here is the details:
Date- Sunday, 2/5
Location- Cerritos HS Gym
Call Time- 2PM @ Cerritos HS. We will meet outside the gym near the east parking lot (the one with the solar panels across from Heritage Park).
Performances- Approximately 3-6:30PM. We will likely be performing in the first hour, but will have a lineup later this week. The last couple of groups will be AMAZING and I hope everybody is able to stay and watch!!
Tickets- Admission is $10 for the show. Performers in the show and children under 3 years old are free.
Concessions- CHS boosters will be selling concessions! I have heard it will be cash or card but will update once I get more info.
