• Students will be involved in performances provided by our school, community, and region. SWO Concert Bands will participate in the following activities this upcoming year:


    Spring Semester

    Pre-MPA Concert - March 2nd

    Eastern District Music Performance Adjudication - March 16th 

    Southwest Band Day - April 22 (Saturday) 

    Spring Concert – May 25th (Thursday)


    Attendance for these events and performances is mandatory and accounts for 35% of the grade. Students are required to stay for the full duration of the event. Concerts are the result of weeks of hard work and gaining musical knowledge. Should there be an emergency that prevents the student from performing, a notification must be given by the parent/guardian to the band director by email or phone (word of mouth and written notes will not be accepted). An alternative assignment must be completed to receive a grade for the missed performance. It is the student’s responsibility to turn in the assignment.
