Jazz CMEA this Friday 1/17/20

Hello Jazz Band Families,

The 2020 Jazz Band CMEA is next Friday, January 17th at the Green Music Center on the Sonoma State University campus.  For family and friends who would like to come and watch our Jazz Band perform, the performance time this year is at 10:30am.  The event is free to the public; however, parking is $5.

This is a graded event for all students enrolled in zero period Jazz Band.

Jazz Band members will be required to wear their jazz uniform.  This includes all black dress pants, all black long-sleeve, button-down, collared dress shirt, black dress shoes and all black socks.  We will be wearing blue ties, which will be provided and collected upon our return to school.  Please make sure both shirt and pants are pressed. The shirt must be tucked in and if wearing a belt, it must be black.

Permission slips were due Friday, January 10, 2020.  Both sides must be completed and signed by a parent/guardian and the teachers of their Friday classes.  Any late permission slips should be turned in immediately.

This year we are having chaperone drivers bring the Jazz Band students and their instruments to the event.  Janis will send an email to those driving.

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.

Students are also responsible for bringing any extra music supplies they may need in case of emergency: extra reeds, cables, strings, etc.

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