One week from today - Tuesday, October 3 is our Fall Concert!
Because our program is growing, we can no longer fit all orchestra families in the auditorium at once. This is a good problem! There will be two concerts Tuesday evening. The first concert will be for Philharmonic, Concert and Sinfonietta. This concert will begin at 6:30 pm. The second concert will be for Symphony and Chamber. We will begin at 7:45 pm.
Directions for student arrival: Students are expected to report to the orchestra room at the designated time for their orchestra. Students are expected to arrive in their formal uniform. Arriving and changing will result in grade deduction. Additional directions about uniforms and concert expectations can be found in the ORHS Orchestra Handbook.
Arrival times by orchestra:
Philharmonic - 5:50 pm Symphony - 7:15 pm
Concert - 6:00 pm Chamber - 7:25 pm
Sinfonietta - 6:15 pm
Ladies: Ladies should be in their formal black dress with close toed black dress shoes. Open toed sandals and flip flops are not allowed. Women should wear black tights, pantyhose or knee-highs. These can be purchased at the grocery store for an inexpensive price. Nails should be short and pale, make-up should be tasteful and not distracting, jewelry should be minimal and hair should be styled away from the face.
