Picnic Pops-8th Grade Band



Where: Pioneer High School outside on the lawn

Date: Sunday May 21st
Time: Tappan band students arrive 11:30 to the Pioneer orchestra room, warm up 11:50 in the Pioneer band room, performance 12:15-12:30. Dismissal immediately after performance. Families are welcomed to stay after dismissal to watch other group or take part in the outdoor activities at Picnic Pops. 

What to wear: Tappan band t-shirts, bottoms/shoes of students choice. Note: As the concert is outside, we recommend close-toed shoes.

What to bring: Instrument, music, and anything you need to perform (reeds, valve oil, tuba stands, etc). Clothespins or clips to secure music to music stands in case of a windy day!

TRANSPORTATION: Students will need to provide their own transportation to and from Pioneer High School (601 W. Stadium Blvd., Ann Arbor, MI). If you are in need of transportation assistance, please contact Ms. Stout.

INSTRUMENTS & MATERIALS: Students are responsible for transporting their own instruments to/from Pioneer along with anything they need to perform (music, sticks/mallets, mutes, valve oil, reeds, etc). Do not cause stress for yourself, your section, your directors, and the band by being unprepared! Leave a reminder for yourself to take home everything that you need on Friday March 20th at the end of the school day.

ATTENDANCE: ‚Äč‚ÄčAttendance for concerts is mandatory. Every band member is important and we need to know ASAP if someone will be absent so we can make adjustments and ensure all parts are covered. We ask that you make every effort to resolve scheduling conflicts. Please contact Ms. Stout at stoutl@aaps.k12.mi.us with any questions regarding attendance or in case of emergency.

Please let us know if you have any questions. We are looking forward to this memorable performance, including our band being conducted by Mr. Leach and performing along Tappan alumni!
