Re: December Band Concert
You could feature soloists or small ensembles of each instrument playing a one line Christmas tune. You can explain a little about each instrument and let the parents hear how each instrument sounds alone. You could do a few of these between each full band song.
Hey Yellow Boarders,
I have a 6th grade band concert that I need to lengthen.
Normally I do 6,7,8th grade on the same night and 6th grade is like 10 minutes. Now I'm at a 6th grade center and looking at more-like 20-25 minutes. I'll have 160 beginners on the gym floor and I have Jingle Bells, My Dredle and a couple songs from the Belwin Beginning Band kit #7.
Any tips on how to make this an impressive and memorable experience?
