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

Emerson Band and BH Town Band members,
The Memorial Day Ceremony IS happening this morning AT THE PIER. For those getting there a bit early, note we may be playing up on the green area instead of at the end of the pier (TBD).
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.
(no logo shirts, no ripped jeans, no tank tops, no flip flops… )
Conners Emerson BAND Parents, Students, and BH Town Band Members!
Tomorrow there is a 50/50 chance of rain in the forecast.
I will officially notify everyone by 8:30 tomorrow morning of our Memorial Day plans. You will be notified through the CEmusic.org site (via email if you are subscribed). If you do not get an email by 8:30, check the site homepage (sometimes there is a short lag on the emails).
FYI – Parents can help out other parents become more informed by letting them know of the existence of CEmusic.org. If they subscribe online, they will get the emails like you!
Thanks everyone, and hopefully we will see you tomorrow! – Mr Ellis
