Symphonic Band and Wind Symphony
Midwest Music Festival
Saturday February 25th, 2012
Our large ensemble festival for the Wind Symphony and Symphonic Band is coming up on Saturday, February 25th. The festival is a required event for each performing ensemble and will take place in the morning. Information, a schedule, and directions are attached in this letter.
Description of event:
The Midwest Music Fest is one of the largest concert band festivals in the Chicago-land area. There are 40 high schools represented at the festival and the judging is outstanding. The festival is competitive in nature with caption awards for percussion, brass, woodwinds, and esprit de corps.
Location and time:
The symphonic band will perform at 9:30AM and the wind symphony will perform at 10:30AM. The early performance times are to allow winter percussion students to return to school to leave for their IPA show. We are also performing early so that students can return to help out with the craft fair.
All students should arrive at school at 7:00AM. The bus will leave at 7:30 for Lemont.
Lemont High School is located at 800 Porter St. Lemont, IL.
Parent attendance and chaperones:
Ticket prices for the day are $7.00 for adults and $4.00 for students. Performers do not need to buy tickets. This event will take place on the Saturday of our Spring Craft Fair, so any parents that would like to attend that are also volunteering for the craft fair might want to work their schedules accordingly.
Dress for the performance is full concert uniform.
Please return the permission form on Tuesday, February 21st.
