Dear Band Parents/Guardians,
Please note: The venue has changed. Our Jazz Band I and II students will be performing at the Band Benefit Dance at the CHAMPIONS RUN (13800 EAGLE RUN DRIVE) on SUNDAY, APRIL 7, 2013The event will include performances by jazz bands from area elementary schools, Beveridge Magnet School, Buffett Magnet School and Burke High School. The dance will be from 2:30-5:30pm. This is a great opportunity for our students to perform and to also hear the jazz bands from the other schools. We hope you can attend this performance. It should be a lot of fun and you will get to dance and/or just listen to some great music. We plan to offer free dance instruction again this year, generously provided by professional dance instructors. A silent auction will be held and refreshments will be available for purchase. All proceeds are for the benefit of the Burke High School Band program.
The Burke Jazz Band II performance will be at 3:30-3:45pm followed by Jazz Band I at 4:45-5:15pm. Please have Jazz Band II students there by 3:00pm and Jazz Band I students there by 4:15pm. Burke band parents will be in the front lobby of CHAMPIONS RUN to direct students to the warm-up room and audience members to the ballroom. Students need to wear their Jazz Band outfit. They also will need to bring their instrument and mutes.
Tickets will be available at the door and are $7.00 for adults and $3.00 for students. Children 5 and under are free. This year we are again offering a family pass for $17.00 which admits 2 adults and 2 students (a savings of $3.00). JAZZ BAND STUDENTS DO NOT NEED A TICKET!
Mr. Edwards and Mr. Spath
