Concert Tomorrow! NUYS

Greetings NUYS family!

Thank you to everyone who attended our dress rehearsal on Tuesday.  You sounded AMAZING, and I can't wait for the performance tomorrow night!  Please review the information below so you know when, where, and what to do tomorrow.

Time Schedule - 
4:30 pm - Setup - If you can come this early, we'll appreciate your help.
5:15 - 5:45 pm - NUYS Sound Check on stage (30 minutes can go quick! So please be in your chair and ready to tune by 5:10)
6:00 - 6:30 pm - NUYCO Sound Check on stage
7:00 pm Concert! Invite friends!
Location -
Ogden High School - 2828 Harrison Blvd (google maps link)
Parking is available on both sides of the building.  Parking is also available alongside the bus roundabout along Harrison but the west doors will not be open.
The doors that will be open are the south east doors with access through the courtyard from the north parking lot; and the doors in the South parking lot by the sports fields.
Help - 
We will need help moving chair and stand carts to the stage before the concert as well as stacking them and returning the carts to the band room directly after the concert. 
We will also need a couple of parents to pick up any programs/trash that are left behind in the theatre.
Volunteer by signing up on the volunteer collaboration spreadsheet!

We wear standard "Concert Black".
This is the posted description from the website:
Male: Black tux or equivalent suit, white dress shirt, black bow tie, black socks, black shoes.
 Female: Black dress, formal trouser suit, or blouse & skirt, midriff covered, conservative neckline, skirts & dresses at least tea-length, slits no higher than knee, black stockings , black shoes, accessories & trim in black. 
Food -
You may want to bring a sack dinner to eat during the NUYCO sound check. If you do, bring only WATER to drink, eat only in the hallways of the school, not in the band room or the auditorium. Clean up after yourself meticulously, please. :)

After the concert please leave your folder on your stand! String players, make sure that both folders are on the stand before you leave the stage.

We are going to have a fantastic concert! Be sure to let all your family and friends know! Here are links that you can share through Facebook and email:
