5th Grade Band and Orchestra

**If you have not done so yet, PLEASE TAKE 5 MINUTES and register your child for instrumental music at the following link (only if you played an instrument last year in 4th grade; this is not for beginning families):

All *returning 5th grade instrumental students are now in the Intermediate Orchestra or Intermediate Band. This means that all Intermediate Band students (flute, clarinet, sax, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, percussion) will practice together as a large ensemble once a week; and all Intermediate Orchestra students (violin, viola, cello) will practice together as a large ensemble once a week.

5th grade Orchestra will meet on Wednesday: 10:40-11:20.
5th grade Band will meet on Friday: 8:40-9:20
Rehearsals start Wed 9/18/19 for Orchestra and 9/20/19 for band.

If you don’t have an instrument or borrowed one from me last year, still come to the first rehearsal. If you do have your instrument, bring it to school on your rehearsal day in the morning before school to the music room (just like you did last year) along with your band or orchestra book you used last year (Red=Band: Brown=Orchestra).

*I am assuming all students will be returning on the same instrument for the 2019-20 school year. Students who borrowed district owned instruments in 4th grade will have first priority for an instrument this year in 5th grade. Students not continuing to study their instrument in 5th grade should contact Mr. Pendergrass.
