Thursday evening is the public concert for the 10th and 11th grade music classes, and it promises to be a most enjoyable evening. Here is some information you need to have for the concert to be successful.
Parent monitors: each year we ask at least one parent from each section (10a, 10b, 10c, and so on) to serve the students by monitoring them during the cast call and concert. It mostly involves watching the students and making note of any unusually admirable or untoward behavior. If you can serve in this way, please contact Mrs. Wilkison (for 10a or 10c) or Dr. Wolfe (use the contact button above; for 10b, 11a, 11b, and 11c). There is a brief training session at 5:45 to make it easy for you to monitor and also to enjoy the concert.
Performance venue: is “TPA Auditorium at Redemption” (formerly known as EdOptions). It is on the northwest corner of Southern and Price, about 1.5 miles east of the TPA Campus at 2150 East Southern. The tech rehearsal also is in this auditorium.
Cast call: is at 6:00 p.m. at the auditorium. Punctuality is important for students to do well at the concert. The concert itself begins at 7:00 p.m.
Concert attire: this is the standard concert attire for TPA concerts. It is described in the course description (signed by you at the beginning of the semester) and on TPA’s online calendar in the event description here.
Tech rehearsal: we are trying a new approach to the tech rehearsal this year, rehearsing with the 10th and 11th grade (mostly) separately. Bus transportation is provided by TPA both ways for the 10th grade students and one way (to the rehearsal) for the 11th grade. Parents will need pick up 11th grade students at the end of the rehearsal at 2:45 at the auditorium. A permission slip is required of all students riding the bus. Additional paperwork is required of students who wish to drive themselves to the rehearsal. No church or school staff is provided to supervise students who remain at the auditorium beyond the pickup time.
Prepare to have a lovely time Thursday evening. The students seem excited about their concert and I anticipate a beautiful evening. Admission is free and the concert is open to the public.
