Jazz Band – CMEA Fri Jan 18th

Hello Jazz Band Families,

The 2019 Jazz Band CMEA is next Friday, January 18th at the Green Music Center on the Sonoma State University campus.  Our performance time this year is at 10:00am, for family and friends who would like to come and watch our Jazz Band perform.  The event is free to the public, however, parking is $5.

Jazz Band members will be required to wear their jazz uniform.  This includes all black pants, all black button-down dress shirt (with collar), all black shoes and all black socks.  We will be wearing the blue bow ties and the blue suspenders.  The blue suspenders will be handed out prior to leaving for the event and collected upon our return to school.  Please make sure both shirt and pants are pressed. 

Please CLICK HERE to download the permission slip.  There are hard copies available in the band/orchestra office.  See Janis.  Permission slips went home today and are due by Friday, January 11, 2019.

This year the students we are having chaperone drivers bring the Jazz Band students and their instruments to the event.  Please have your student bring a breakfast (if they do not eat before coming to Jazz Band) and/or a snack and some water.  There will not be time for your student to get food between Jazz Band and leaving for SSU.   For lunch, they can either bring a brown bag lunch or bring money to purchase lunch near SSU.

If you have any questions, please contact Janis in the band/orchestra office at coordinator@analybandwagon.org or (707) 824-2337.
