Who: ALL band members in grades 9 - 11. We will perform for the BVW graduation ceremonies. See details below.
IF you forgot your instrument at school, the band room at BV West will be open from 5 - 5:30 PM this afternoon before the ceremony.
Report Time: 6:00 PM As there will be a large audience present, and limited parking, it is essential that students arrive early to ensure they can be inside the stadium and seated with their instrument and equipment well before our performance begins. Graduation begins at 7:00 PM, and we perform before, during, and after the ceremony. Students will be ready to pick-up after 8:30 PM (TENTATIVE.)
Concert Uniform: Nice dress clothes. Examples: Dress pants with a collared shirt (no jeans or leggings,) skirt / blouse, dress, etc.
Performance Location: SWIDAC (District Stadium located at 135th and Switzer. See map below.)
What if it rains? In case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be rescheduled for Wednesday, May 26 at 6:00 PM at SWIDAC. The band will play.
I have a cousin graduating at another school / out of town? No worries! We will certainly excuse students to attend family graduations at other schools. Make sure to communicate with Mr. Love via email BEFORE May 20 so that we can provide an accurate seating chart to the SWIDAC staff.
My sibling is graduating from West? Do I still play in the band? YES! Because you will be seated with the band, this means that another family member can sit in the stands, and YOU will have a front row seat to watch your sibling graduate!
How do our instruments and music get there? Students are responsible for bringing their instrument to SWIDAC EXCEPT for tuba, bari sax, and percussion students. Music folders will be collected in class and delivered to SWIDAC.
