March Sixth Grade Concert Format
We are inviting parents and families of our Sixth Grade groups to a special “day in the life” rehearsal and performance on March 13th, in order to see and hear what our students and teachers do everyday in class. We want you to have a great understanding of all the hard work that both the students and teachers do to prepare for a performance. Each group will be in a separate space (see below) and your child’s teacher will explain how they begin, develop the music and end a rehearsal. You will then be treated to a performance of the music at the end of the rehearsal.
March 13th 7:00 - 7:45 **Grade 6 open rehearsal/performance**
- 6 band on the HMS stage
- 6 chorus in the HMS caf
- 6 orchestra on the HHS stage
