A Word About Concerts

Students will have at minimum of one concert each school year. Live performance is an important part of being a musician and is a great way to celebrate the process of making music. CONCERT ATTENDANCE IS MANDATORY for all students. Students who are unable to attend day or evening concerts due to an excused absence, illness, family emergency, religious beliefs, etc. may complete an alternative project to make up their concert grade.
