Announcements

Concert October 17th!  

We look forward to seeing everyone at our Fall Concert.  The performance begins at 7 pm in the MHS auditorium. A few reminders: 

  1. Students are required to attend and remain for the whole concert until the end.  Attendance will be checked multiple times and factors into the final concert grade.  
  2. Concert attire should appear uniform and professional- Shoes must be black dress shoes.  If in doubt, send me a picture, and I’ll let you know.  Students not appropriately dressed (including bow ties) we be required to change or complete an alternate assignment instead of performing.  Full requirements are here:

3. Call time for Concert Orchestra is 6:30, dressed and in seats warming up.  Call        time for everyone else is 6:45 at the designated spot (TBA). Pizza will be      served by 5:45.  Please respond HERE https://forms.gle/peHvwuqaqkW6aEjn9  by Thursday if you are going to participate in the pizza social (provided by our MHS Orchestra Boosters).  

Tuxedo payments

All students not wearing dresses should have been fitted for tuxedos.  They need to go home this week, but you must have paid the $25 tux fee first (payable to MHS Orchestra Booster Club).  Remember that you must provide your own black dress shoes, white dress shirt, and black bow tie.  

Spring Trip

Everyone should have created their online account by now.  Directions were sent out via Remind. Your initial deposits will be applied to the overall cost of the trip, but we cannot do that until all travelers have created accounts.  Also, we need to be on track with the payment schedule by the second deadline listed. 

Spring Trip chaperones 

Still a couple needed- please email me or reply to this message by Wednesday if interested.

Orchestra Fees

We still have outstanding balances for annual orchestra fees.  I know you receive a lot of info and make payments for many organizations, so if you can’t remember if you have paid or not, please ask!  This is payable online through OSP.  

Strolling Strings

Congrats and thanks to those who gave performances at both the Hall of Fame event at Milton HS and the Art Show in Alpharetta.  You represented us well. Info on a new look, new name, and upcoming events for this group coming soon! 

All State and District Honor Orchestra

I need to know this week if you are interested in auditioning for Fulton Co. Honor Orchestra.  Great opportunity and audition experience- you only get better with practice.  

If auditioning for All State, you should have received your time from me already.  Also, please check the board for the etude errors list that was sent out.
