Dear Band Families,
The Robinson Middle School intermediate and advanced bands will perform at Mills High School on Thursday, February 13. Our tentative performance time is 4:50pm. We will perform and receive critiques from a panel of adjudicators. This event is designed to help our district's bands prepare for our formal concert assessment that takes place in March. Transportation will be provided to and from the event. Students should be picked up at RMS around 6:30pm. Students must wear concert black (solid black) dress clothes. Gentlemen must have a long sleeve dress shirt with a collar and ladies are strongly encouraged (but not required) to wear a knee length dress/skirt. Band Boosters are providing gold bow-ties and pearls. No other jewelry or accessories will be allowed on stage. All students with long hair are required to braid or tightly bun their hair. Dress code will be strictly enforced. The performance is free and open to the public.
If acquiring black clothes/shoes or transporting your child after the event is a hardship, please, let me know. We are here to help in anyway we can. We are glad to help with clothing, transportation, or whatever supports your family or student may need in order to fully participate. Nobody in the Robinson Bands gets left behind because of money or logistics. Simply, communicate your needs.
We will be performing Marchus Maximus (Michael Story), Armory (Randall Standridge), and Night Fury (Carol Chambers). Encourage your student to focus in class and practice at home. Parental interest and support is critical to our success. Please, come listen to our students perform. We hope to represent our community well and make you proud!
