3.) Winter Concerts This Week:
We hope you will join us for our two winter concerts this week in the school gym! The programs are a mix of holiday repertoire, winter-themed music, and there is something for everyone!
CALL TIME CHANGE: We have backed student call time for both concerts back to 5:30pm. Students need to be at Reynolds for 5:30pm wearing the uniform of the ensemble they perform in first.
We respectfully ask that students stay until the end of the evening to support their fellow musicians and to help with tear-down.
UNIFORMS: These are full uniform performances. Students performing in multiple ensembles will have time to change for each ensemble.
Band Uniform Reminders can be found here: https://reynoldsmusic.ca/reynolds-band-uniforms-a-visual-aid/

Bake Sale Information:
The Winter Concerts will feature our wonderful bake sale in support of our excellent music program. We would greatly appreciate volunteers to bake their favourite cookies, cupcakes, bars, tarts, cakes etc. The baked goods may be delivered to the bake sale tables, located in the gymnasium, after 6pm on concert night. Or, they can be left in the band room with Mr. Davis or Ms. Kerr in the morning of the concert(s), December 17th or 18th, 2019. Please label your items with what they are and the ingredients.
Please bring a container if you wish to purchase any items to take home. If you forget I will also have baggies and saran wrap at the table. This is a great way to stock up on a wonderful variety of baking to enjoy over the holidays.
