Your Final Concert – WOW!

Hey Everyone – Your final concert last week! WOW! Amazing job, everyone!

It was a very happy, but also sad moment for me. We made such great music together! But at the same time, I will miss working with all of you. I am very proud of the musical accomplishments you have all made these past two years. It has been a privilege to be part of it all!

I look forward to hearing some of your performances next year!

Have a Great Summer! – Mr. Ellis

You are responsible for: Your Instrument, your music, your flip folder, and lyre. If you need a music stand, you are responsible for bringing one for yourself. I will not bring extra music. If you do not have a flip folder you are responsible for bringing something to keep your music from blowing away (clothes pins).

ARRIVE 9:00 at school OR 9:30 at the pier, there will be a bus to/from school.
WE PLAY at 9:50 at the Town Pier, Ceremony is at 10:00
Dress nice, please – light raincoats are a good idea.
