Graduation (Commencement) – Saturday, May 27 – UPDATED TIME!

 

  • Commencement is Saturday, May 27 at 9:00 a.m. at the U.N.O. Baxter Arena
  • We are performing: Les Miserables, Disney Jazz Medley, Titanic, Wicked, MNHS School Song, The Star Spangled Banner, and Pomp and Circumstance.  Winds – if you do not have each piece of music, please double with someone who does have the part.
  • Orchestra needs to be ready to play by 8:30 a.m., so we will need to leave MNHS by 7:30 a.m. (arrive by 7:00 a.m.) to leave enough travel and set-up time.  We will load the buses after the ceremony and should return to MNHS by 11:00 a.m.
  • Dress is concert black – all black for ladies (uniforms for orchestra strings), white shirt, tie, black pants for men – black dress socks and black dress shoes for all.
  • You will need to bring your instrument and music AND a folding stand.
  • We will travel to the Baxter Arena by school bus.  If you do not wish to return to Millard North High School on the bus, I must have a written note from your parents by Friday, May 19.  Parking can be difficult, so riding the bus is preferred.
  • This is a REQUIRED performance for EVERYONE enrolled in orchestra/IB orchestra. Commencement is a BIG DEAL – our seniors, the school board, Dr. Sutfin (MPS Superintendent) and the taxpayers are there.  You need to be in top form – both in performance and behavior. This will be our most attended performance of the year.  It is imperative to make a good impression.  If you don’t play at commencement, you will forfeit your grade.
  • Winds and percussion – thank you for playing!  Our rehearsal schedule is mostly during 1st /2nd hour.  
  • We will need 5-6 adult chaperones!  Please contact Mrs. M. if you are available to chaperone!
