Daniel J. Savage Bobcat Band and Orchestra
2013 Back to School Night

Welcome to the Savage Instrumental Music Program. We are up and running. Instruments and music have been passed out, and we have begun rehearsals in the largest Middle School rehearsal room in the county!
I am looking forward to another great year continuing the Savage Band and Orchestra’s Tradition of Excellence.

Class/Rehearsal Expectations:
-Students need to be at school/rehearsal (students can’t learn if they aren’t here)
-Students must have their instrument in class in good working order.
-Students must have their 3 ring music binder in class.

Performance Expectations:
-Students are expected to attend all performances for their ensemble(s)
-Students will have their instrument and music ready to perform.
-Students will wear proper uniform in good order to all performances.
-All students help “tear-down/pack up” after all performances.

Uniforms-Students will need black dress pants/skirts (no denim). Ladies who wish to wear skirts must also wear black leggings/tights underneath. Skirts must be below the knee or longer. Students will need black dress shoes with black socks. Ladies may wear open toed shoes with black tights/stocking underneath. For ladies I would suggest a flat shoe over high-heels. All students will wear white tuxedo shirts. In the past these shirts have been under $20. 

The attached sheet is the Savage Band and Orchestra Performance Calendar. This calendar outlines all major concerts, festivals and competitions for the 2012-2013 school year. Students will receive information sheets before each performance that will contain exact report times, performance times, directions, and dress attire.

Thank you for supporting your students’ musical talents
