Our Winter concert will take place at 2:00 PM on Sunday, November 18th at the Hammerschmidt Chapel on the campus of Elmhurst College, 190 Prospect Ave. Elmhurst, IL 60126
All Orchestra members should arrive at the college and be on stage ready to rehearse by 12:00 noon. Dress for orchestra members is black on the bottom, white on top
All other performers should arrive at the hall by 1:30 in order to have time to tune, line up and be in your seats for a prompt 2:00 p.m. start. In the past, families have arrived at the hall at 2:00 pm and later, disrupting the organizational flow of the concert. Please do not be late!
When arriving at the hall, Pre-Twinkle and Twinkle students should go directly to the front rows of the chapel. Seats will be reserved there for you. Due to the large number of beginners, please, one parent with each performing student.
All other performers should head to the basement level where they will look for the classroom with their book level posted. Faculty will be waiting to tune and line up each group. Just before 2:00, all students will be led to the balcony where they will wait their turn to perform. We will need a few parent volunteers to sit with each group class. Please let me know at the rehearsals next week if you are able to do this. This is a tremendous help to the faculty.
Allegro!!!, Cellissimo and Chicago Consort members should wear their appropriate outfit. All other students, the dress is just nice dress clothes. Please, no gym shoes and no lace for the girls or ties for the boys. Please try on the outfit you plan to wear, and make sure that the clothing does not inhibit your ability to play.
