All students using a school owned instrument this semester owe a $25.00 instrument maintenance fee. Fees are due on or before Thursday, January 25th. Students may request to use their trip fund account if money is in the account. Requests must be made by Tuesday, January 23rd. As always, payment can be made with a check or with cash (in an envelope with the appropriate information).
All students will need the Foundations for Superior Performance (commonly referred to as the blue book), a pencil, as well as additional materials defined by each performing group/conductor. Information and deadlines for additional materials will be added after auditions are completed and rehearsals for each band begin.
Concert attire is required for all students enrolled in concert band. Men use a full tuxedo - jacket, pant, white tux shirt (wing tip collar), black bowtie & cummerbund, black dress shoes with black socks. Tuxes are to be purchased from Alyssa's Bridal at 6808 S Memorial, (918) 251-1991 for complete deal. Price for complete package is approximately $289.00 + tax. Alterations are an additional $15.00. Students/Families should take care of this in advance to allow enough time for any alterations or back orders. It is highly recommended to do this in January in order to have tux in hand for the TCC Contest in March.
Ladies use a concert dress ordered through the band parent organization with black shoes. All 9th grade girls, new students, or students needing another dress will be measured in January. Dresses will be ordered shortly after this in order for them to arrive in time for the TCC Contest in March. Price is $80.00 and includes shipping. Dresses do not come in short sizes, only regular and long. It may be necessary for dresses to be altered. Alterations are the responsibility of the student/family and not the band or band parent organization.
Special orders and/or alterations may be necessary with concert attire. These costs are not included in the estimated price of the attire.
Rehearsals will begin on Monday, January 8th. Students are to be seated in chairs and individually warming up @ 8:25. Roll will be taken at this time. Full group rehearsals will begin at 8:30.
