Good Morning Band Family!
Here is some detailed information about the Collage Concert and rehearsals leading to this great event.
The Collage Concert is a mixture of the performing arts at Reeths-Puffer HS. At this performance, you will see our band students, choir, theater, and children’s theater performing together with seamless transitions between each performance. The idea is to give you a collaborative performance of our performing arts in a fast paced and entertaining production.
The actual performance for Collage is scheduled for Wednesday, February 4, at 7:00p in the Rocket Center for the Fine Arts (HS Auditorium). Here is how ticket sales work:
All departments are allowed “presale” tickets for the event. The presale ticket profit goes directly to the department that sale was purchased. In other words, the band keeps the money generated from band presale…the choir keeps the money generated from the choir presale, and the theater keeps the money from the theater presale. Tickets at the door will be divided equally between all departments. As you all have a special interest in our program, and you know that it takes a lot to maintain our level of excellence, we ask that you consider purchasing your tickets ahead of time from the band department. This will enable maximum profit for our organization.
Ticket prices: $7 Adult $5 Student/Senior Citizen
Your child has been given a slip from us (over a week ago) to begin the presale process. All you need to do is fill out the form and deliver it to the band office. Tickets will be distributed to your child the week of the event. You may also pick up tickets in the band office between 12-4 during SCRIP hours. All of these proceeds go directly to our organization.
