State Concert Band Contest - Friday, April 12th

Jenks is both hosting and competing in the 6A State Concert Band Contest. We will have morning rehearsal on the PAC stage from 8:25-10:00am. Students will need to bring concert attire with them that morning. Attire may be stored in the Wind Symphony Room. After rehearsal, everything needed for the contest (except percussion equipment) will need to be moved and kept in the Wind Symphony room during contest day.

Students will be excused from classes for 4th, 5th and 6th hours. At that point, students should change into concert attire, get instruments and music out, and line up in the hallway outside the large choir room.

Students must be VERY quiet and professional when doing all these things. There will be a band waiting in the hallway, one in the warm-up room, and one in the sight-reading room, as well as regular classes in the choir, music theory, and orchestra rooms. Students may NOT enter the Concert Band (M111) at any time during the day. It is being used for sight-reading.

Report to the Music Building Hallway in front of the main choir room by 2:15pm. Stand in row order in so as not to waste time entering the room and getting seated. Do not be late. Again, you must be professional and quiet as you wait. Students should be focused on the task at hand and be ready to perform at the highest level.

2:30 Warm Up (Symphonic Band Room)
3:00 Concert Performance (PAC)
3:30 Sight-Read (Concert Band Room)
4:00 Finished (it should be noted that most bands play a long program and the contest tends to run behind. Finish time may be closer to 4:30 or 4:45). Return to music building hallway, put stuff away, and have a nice weekend. Students should still be quiet and professional. Judges will still be in the sight-reading room finishing up their critique/comments and will be able to hear what you say/see what you do while putting things away.

The Stage Performance is free and open to the public (sight-reading is a closed performance). Anyone who wants to hear the stage performance may attend.
