 Solo and Ensemble Schedule 

Attire- "Sunday Best", you need to look nice. (No Jeans,T-shirts, or Tennis shoes)

Arrive approximately 30 minutes before your performance time so that you can get a good warm up and be at your room ready to play at your scheduled time. (posted a week or so before contest)

When it is time for your performance, pick up the "Original Music" for your solo/ensemble from the box in the hallway next to your performance room (If your music was selected by Mr. Sherin).  This original needs to be given to the judge when you perform.  You will NOT be allowed to perform without it).  After you have played, wait in the hall for the original to be returned to you from the monitor.  Return the original to the box.  
If your private instructor selected your music, make sure and bring it to the contest with the mesures numbered.  You will be responsible for providing the original for the judge and returning it to your private instructor.

Results will be posted in the cafeteria approximately 30min -1hr after your performance.  You do not have to stay and wait for results.  They will be posted in class on Monday.

The Warm-Up area will be in the cafeteria.  Make sure your instrument and music go home with you Friday as you will not have access to the band room on Saturday (it is being used as a performance room for the contest).
