Hello Daniell Orchestra Families!

This is a friendly reminder that the Fall orchestra concert for 7th and 8th grade will be held tomorrow (Wednesday 10/6) at Lassiter High School at 7pm!

Who is invited?

Anyone and everyone!  Bring the whole family! 😊 (Lassiter concert hall is HUGE!)

What to wear?

Girls wear their black concert dress, solid black shoes of their choice

Boys tuxedos will HOPEFULLY arrive tomorrow during the school day – they have shipped but there have been shipping delays out of our control. Worst case, if they do not, boys will wear all black with black socks and black shoes.

If you choose to wear a mask, please make sure it is black like our uniform.

What about my cello/bass?

It is the student’s responsibility to bring their own instrument.  I am not able to transport instruments and we are not able to use Lassiter HS equipment per policy.  If you need to borrow a school cello/bass for the night, you are responsible for transporting it to Lassiter and bringing it back to school the following day.
