CONCERT SCHEDULE: The seasonal concert schedule will be arranged
and published well in advance of the concert dates. The tentative
schedule will be announced in early May or sooner. When performance
opportunities arise on short notice, the membership will be polled
as to their availability. The Director/Conductor will then issue a
decision based on the interest and availability expected.
CONCERT DRESS: All members should wear a uniform
shirt or top provided by the Social Director of the band. If not available, a BLUE shirt
is acceptable. Shoes should be dark in color and with dark socks
(please, no white socks). Black or dark slacks are required. No
shorts are acceptable, unless authorized in advance for the entire
band by the Director/Conductor.
CONCERT PROCEDURE: Members should arrive at
the concert site with sufficient time to unpack, warm up and check
seating. Members may be asked to assist the Equipment Manager
with final seating arrangements. Members need to be on stage at
least 15 minutes before the downbeat of the first selection in
order to allow warm up and tuning on stage. Members should arrange
their music in the order of performance, and have any necessary
accessories (clothespins, glasses, mutes, etc.) available in
advance of the concert date. During the concert, members will
need to stay alert to any changes from the conductor. Soloists
should be prepared to stand for recognition.
