Midland Marching Showcase

The Midland Showcase is tomorrow evening. The bus will be leaving at 4:30, students will need to be in full uniform by 4:30 in order to load the buses. If students plan on staying after school the boosters will be providing pizza for those kids but we do encourage students to go home after school and then come back around 4:00.
The showcase is at the Midland Stadium located at 1301 Eastlawn Dr, Midland, MI (Midland High School). There is a $5 entrance charge and I suggest you get there by 5:30 if you would like to get a seat. No concessions will be sold at the event so students will need to eat dinner before they load the bus. The bands begin performing at 5:55 with Central scheduled to perform at 8:00. We should be back around 10:30. 
It is expected that all students ride the bus to Midland unless they have an athletic game or practice. Those students will need to let me know they will not be riding the bus there in writing by 2:30 on Wednesday. (just a reminder that band classes will not be meeting tomorrow because of PSAT testing).  Parents that are attending are welcome to take their child home at the end of the showcase, again I will just need it in writing so I am not waiting in Midland looking for those students.  Students riding the bus will need to turn their uniforms in at the end of the evening while students that are going home with their parents will need to have their uniform turned in by the start of band class on Thursday.
This is not a competition, it is a chance for band students from all over the area to showcase their hard work during the season and to support everyone’s band program.
