Summer Band and Orchestra 2022 is tentatively scheduled
to be held at Sunnyside
June 1 - June 30, weekday mornings
with a concert in the evening of June 30 at the Jefferson Gymnasium

Regarding Choir Eligibility

For students who have chosen to take both instrument and choir classes during the school year, the requirement that they attend the summer program will not be enforced this year.  It is highly recommended that those students attend the summer program if they are able, and it will be even more important for students with both classes to work hard to keep up during the school year.  However, we do not feel comfortable enforcing the requirement in light of the unforeseen changes.  The music team will work together to make sure that each student who shares classes gets a solid block of time on their instrument before entering into the full shared schedule with the choir class.


Regarding Supplies

All students will need the required supplies to start the band program.  You can find a list of required supplies by following these instructions:

  • All TAF applications have been submitted to the Tippecanoe Arts Federation, and we will be working with them to have those instruments delivered to the school and ready for use by the start of the program.
  • All LSC rental instruments will be ready at the start of the program as well.


Regarding Safety

All instruments will have been quarantined, repaired or maintained and sanitized, and quarantined again before the start of the program.


Mr. Mui and I will be reaching out to individual families as needed to make sure that everything is ready to go for the start, whenever that may be.  And, as always, feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns you may have.
