    Music Booster Fundraiser

    Please see the attached flyer about the Music Booster fundraiser at Jacob’s Well on Sunday, March 5th.  Live entertainment and food catered by Chuck’s BBQ!  The Music Boosters do so much to provide for our music students at EP; please invite your friends and come on out!

     

      IHSA Solo and Ensemble Contest

      Solo and Ensemble Contest will take place on Saturday, March 4th at Reavis High School (6034 W 77th St, Burbank, IL).  The performance schedule is attached below.  Here are some tips to insure a successful performance day.

      *There are two rooms indicated on the schedule.  The “W” is the warmup room and the “P” is the performance room.  There are NO pianos in any warmup room, so if you need a pitch source, make sure you have a piano app downloaded.

      *Make sure you have an ORIGINAL copy of your solo for the judge with measures numbered.  Photocopies are NOT acceptable and will result in the loss of a rating.

      *Please dress professionally.  (No jeans or gym shoes.)

      *Arrive at least one hour prior to your first performance.  Reavis is a big school and it will take you time to find your performance room.

      *We will designate an area of the cafeteria for our school.  You can leave coats and cases there, but you should keep valuables with you at all times.

      *Concessions will be available all day.

      *If you are performing a solo, be prepared with the extra performance responsibilities (scales/ scales and triads)

      *If your accompanist is not in the room when you arrive, don’t panic.  If you are called to perform, simply tell them that your accompanist has not yet arrived.  They will wait or take someone else while you’re waiting. The accompanists run around like crazy people all day long, so be patient.

      *Bring water with you.

      *The Kazin’s will be there all day if you have concerns.
