Quick note on uniforms: We had A LOT of issues with the gentlemen’s uniform readiness at our last concert, particularly forgetting bow ties. Male students and parents of male students are asked to PLEASE make sure they have everything, including bow tie and cummerbund.  Please make sure your student is dressed for success tomorrow!

Enthusiastic audience members are urged to stay to give hearty support to the orchestras at their performances!  We shouldn't spill the beans, but the judges are sometimes swayed to give high ratings to groups who fill the most seats and clap the loudest! Plus, it's just BETTER to play to a supportive audience! 

GOOD LUCK OHS ORCHESTRAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
