  • Once our concert concludes, we’ll move to the audience section to listen to the actual Clinic Band perform (4:00) with Mr. Robert W. Smith as their conductor.
  • We will load busses at 5:00 to come back to NMS.
  • Our arrival time back to NMS will be around 6:00.

Please encourage your child to run the 5 concert selections 2 times a day this week to build endurance.

We are looking forward to a fabulous week!  Thank you for your support!  We can’t wait to see you on Thursday and Saturday!

7th Grade Band Concert This Thursday!!!

We are so excited about our Fall Concert this Thursday at Milton High School!

Our 7th Grade Band and all 3 of the Milton Bands will perform their Fall Concerts this Thursday at the Milton High School auditorium at 6:30 PM.  All students and parents are more than welcome to attend.  (students can receive extra credit for attending after they complete the extra credit form!)

7th Grade students should wear their formal attire (black shoes, black socks, black slacks, tuxedo shirt/with plain white t-shirt underneath).  We will begin our warm up at 6:00 PM in the MILTON High School band room lexapro anxiety.  It might be a good idea to aim closer to 5:50 PM for arrival, so they can have time to put on their bow tie sets.  The concert will begin at 6:30 PM in the Milton auditorium.  All 3 of the Milton Bands will perform afterwards.  After our final tune, we will sit down together in the auditorium and listen to the Milton Bands.  If your child needs to leave right after we perform, please let me know.  Students will need to take their bow tie sets back to the uniform crates in the Milton Band room before leaving the school.

How do you make your way to the Milton Band room?  As you approach the front of the school, go towards the right of the front collumns.  There are stairs going down the right side of the building (bus loading area).  Enter through the first set of doors on the left, before approaching cafeteria.  Once you enter the building, the band room is the 2nd room down on the left and the auditorium is just across the hallway from the band room. (The orchestra room is the first one on the left.)
