Ensembles are performing their selections for the upcoming solo/ensemble event (to be held at Lakota WEST High Sschool) for a guest adjudicator.  Parents are more than welcome to come to this performance and clinic.  Groups are scheduled every 15 minutes.  In this time they will perform the selection and work with our guests.  It's a very educational evening!  Students should arrive at East at least 25minutes prior to their performance time.  Warm up is in the band room.



THE ACTUAL SOLO/ENSEMBLE EVENT:



The actual solo/ensemble event (again being held at Lakota WEST High School) is Saturday, January 28.  Here is the link to the times:

Students should plan to arrive at West at least 30 minutes prior to their performance time.  Warm up rooms will be marked accordingly.



This is a performance.  Be sure to "Dress for Success".  Jeans are not appropriate attire for this event.



We hope to see you at these events!
