Final Concert Information – Note Time Change

EVYS Final 2016 DRAFT 1Next Thursday, May 5th is our third and final concert of the 10th Anniversary season and it is scheduled for 6:00pm at the Higley Center for the Performing Arts.   (This Thursday, April 28th is a regular rehearsal with normal start times of 4:30pm for Concert/Chamber and 6:15pm for Symphony.)

Several issues contributed to the change in the concert start time and we appreciate your flexibility with the change. A good number of our musicians have a school concert scheduled the same evening, so changing the time will allow them to play in both concerts.  And because Thursday is a school night, we wanted to make every effort to avoid a late evening, but still enjoy the traditional reception following our concert.  And for this event, it is our Concert Orchestra’s parents turn to bring a food item for the reception.

Below please find the call times and other specific directions for each orchestra for our Final Concert:

Concert and Chamber Orchestras

Please arrive to Higley High School on Thursday, May 5th at the normal rehearsal time of 4:30pm.  Rehearsal will last from 4:30-5:30pm and then pizza will be provided afterwards.  Students may come to rehearsal already dressed for the concert, or they may change after eating dinner.  The concert starts at 6:00pm.
