Re: December Band Concert
All good suggestions here. I always closed with Jingle Bells, then told the parents something like "We hope this is the first of many band concerts for your child, but we don't want them to forget this one, so we're going to play Jingle Bells one more time and I want you to feel free to come on down to the band and take as many close up pictures as you want."
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?
