GRADUATION

DOWNLOAD

ALL LAFAYETTE BAND UNDER-CLASSMEN ARE EXPECTED TO PLAY FOR GRADUATION!

Transportation: There will not be bus transportation to this event!

Wear blue Lafayette Band polo shirt/khaki or black pants/appropriate shoes.

We will meet at 3:00pm at the lower level back entrance to Rupp Arena. Do not be late!!! You can access this by parking in the Jefferson Street parking lot (which will cost you money) or you can be dropped off on High Street, just at the end of Rupp Arena, and take the steps down to the lower level back entrance.

We will rehearse briefly from 3:15 3:45 pm. We will begin performing at 4pm and play until after the seniorsprocessional. We will stay for the entire graduation, which lasts approximately one hour and 30 minutes, and then provide the recessional for seniors and guests. Have your rides pre-arranged for pick-up at Rupp Arena close to 5:30pm.

This year, all non-graduating students who are in both the choir & band will perform with the band.

Students are expected to wear their blue short-sleeve polo band shirt and an appropriate pair of khaki pants( black, tan, brown). No shorts or jeans!!!

Percussionists and tubas need to be aware of information that will be given later in the week concerning truck loading and unloading.

If anyone has any questions, please call me at 381-3484 or 396-3311. Remember, this is a performance and unexcused non-participation will result in a revised grade!

 

VOLUNTEER CAR POOL TO RUPP

 

We realize this may create transportation problems for some families. A voluntary car pool is being organized to assist families that are unable to transport their student to Rupp Arena.  Please text Tiffany Stockwell at 859-221-6780 if you are available to transport students. Please include your name and the number of students you can accommodate. If your student needs transportation, please text the student’s name and telephone number to Tiffany and we will connect you with a volunteer parent driver.

Please respond to Tiffany no later than 6:00pm on Tuesday, May 28 with this information
