Pre-Contest Concert

Tuesday March 12, 2019

The Jenks Middle School Pre-Contest Concert is scheduled for Tuesday, March 12th.  This concert is designed to prepare students for OSSAA District Concert Band Competition on the following Thursday.

Students should wear contest attire:

  • Black, long-sleeve, button-down collared shirt TUCKED IN
  • Black slacks
  • Black socks or hose
  • Black dress shoes

The order of the concert will be 3rd hour 8th grade band, 5th hour 7th grade band, 6th hour 7th grade band, and 4th hour 8th grade band so that the eighth graders can go through the normal contest routine.

All students will report to the high school music building.  Click here for a Google map to that location.  3rd hour will enter the grey door on the south side of the building.  4th hour will enter the glass double doors on the south side of the building.  (Please note that the south side is also the side with the maroon lit treble clef on the side of the building.)

3rd hour students will report to the high school band room no later than 6:25 PM.  We will begin timing our 20 minute warm-up at 6:30 PM.  At 6:50 we will transfer to the stage and perform our two pieces for parents at 7:00 PM.  After you perform, you will sit together in the auditorium with Mr. Hillock and listen to the rest of the concert politely.

4th hour students will arrive at 6:45 PM and set their instruments cases in the HS Wind Symphony Room (HS Band students will be in the hallway to direct you).  You will then meet Mr. Hillock in the HS PAC auditorium and sit as a group.  You will listen to 3rd hour 8th grade band.  After their performance, Miss Arnold will walk you to the band room and you will go through the 20 minute warm-up process.  Afterwards, you will walk to the stage and perform your two contest pieces for our parents.

We are looking forward to performing for you!
