Spring Concert:

This letter is to invite you to the Hillsdale Spring Concerts – Thurs/Fri, March 14th/15th. The concerts will be shared between the 3/4 combo, 4th, and 5th grade classes, and we will sing the exact same program for both concerts.

Because of the size of our auditorium and parking lot, I am asking that 3/4 combo and 4th grade family/friends attend the morning concert (on Friday), and 5th grade family/friends attend the afternoon concert (on Thursday). If you cannot attend the one for your child’s grade, you are welcome to attend the other.

Thurs, March 14th, 2:45 – 3:45 pm: Concert for mostly 5th grade family/friends

Friday, March 15th 9:15 – 10:15 am: Concert for mostly 3/4 combo and 4th grade family/friends

Concert Dress: Please have your child wear any combination of bright spring colors for the concert days. Girls can wear dresses if they would like to, but not required. If dresses are worn, leggings are best in case a student has to sit on the cold floor between songs. For both boys and girls, aim for clothes on the dressier side of normal school wear.

Important Note about Video Recordings: Because some of the pieces we are singing are copyrighted, we are allowed to perform them as long as they are not recorded or shared in any way. Please do not record and absolutely DO NOT share/post any videos of the concert on public media. Thank you for your understanding.

Best regards, Dave Gabbard, Hillsdale Music Specialist
