ALL LAFAYETTE BAND UNDER-CLASSMEN ARE EXPECTED TO PLAY FOR GRADUATION!
We will meet at 3:00pm at upper level (High St.) entrance to Rupp Arena. Do not be late!!! There will be metal detectors used this year.
We will rehearse briefly from 3:30-4:30pm. We will begin performing at 4pm and play until after the seniors’ processional. 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 6:30pm.
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. Loading will be at 2pm at Lafayette
