Evening of Fine Arts

The date has been verified for the EVENING of FINE ARTS - it will be Tuesday, March 8th, in the Jerome High School building complex, throughout the first floor. This will include all four bands - 6th, 7th, 8th grades, and high school. The time frame is still up in the air a bit as we want to use it to encourage voting in the school bond levy that day as well.

This will REPLACE the February 28 and March 1 ensemble concerts previously listed on the schedule. There is NO current date for the Puget Sound tour meeting, although it may very well fall on March 8 as well...stay tuned.

Winter Concert

The Winter Concert is coming up on Monday, January 17th - 7 p.m. start, students meet by 6:30, all four bands performing (6th grade, 7th grade, 8th grade and HS Symphonic Band).

Featured will be a performance by the Symphonic Band of Mr. Smith's tribute piece to Dr. King, On The Steps Of The Lincoln Memorial, first premiered by the Symphonic Band and the Dallas Brass three years ago. Mr. Burton has graciously agreed to re-create his presentation of Dr. King's words, and the solo parts will be performed by JHS students Erik Nordquist, Jerman Orozco, Kade Stirling, Brevin Jackson, and Brooke Sprowes.

Evening of Fine Arts - Puget Sound tour

Our annual Evening of Fine Arts looks like it's going to be scheduled for Tuesday, March 8th in conjunction with the school district's annual bond levy election. This means that (if solidified) we'll be postponing the Ensemble Concerts scheduled for February 28th and March 1st and enfolding it within the EOFA.

We may also reconsider having the Puget Sound meeting on top of that already-large event... but we are hard at work preparing possibilities for the 2012 band/choir tour. As of today, we're most seriously doing two major events in June - the Seattle Center's 50th anniversary of the World's Fair, and the Portland Rose Parade.
