ADVERTISE IN OUR CONCERT PROGRAMS!  Do you have a business that you'd like to advertise to a community of friends and music lovers?  Oakton High School is home to a thriving orchestra program whose musicians and parents are prime prospects for your business. Orchestra students are high-achievers academically and otherwise, making this an ideal audience for academic enrichment activities.  We are also residents and participants in the larger Fairfax County community who love to support our local businesses. If this sounds appealing (and potentially profitable), please consider advertising in our concert programs!  We publish five concert programs during the school year, one for each school concert, which are dutifully attended by a dedicated cadre of parents, friends and family. Rates are affordable too!  Please see the attached flyer and order form for more information.  The Advertising flyer is also available under the "Forms and Documents" tab.  Please contact our Advertising Coordinator, Jennifer Skangos, at (703) 501-0242 with questions.  Messages and artwork can be emailed by reply to this address.   

CONCERT ATTIRE ORDERS ARE DUE NOW (OR YESTERDAY!)  If you are new to our program and have not yet ordered your concert attire, or if you are a returning member who has outgrown last year's uniform, you need to complete your order form and return payment to Mr. Oppenheimer ASAP!  Order forms are under the "Forms & Documents" tab.  Please see Mr. Oppenheimer in class, or contact him at  Mr. Oppenheimer with questions.

FALL CONCERT IS COMING!  On Wednesday evening, October 29th at 7 p.m. in the OHS Auditorium.  Please mark your calendars for this spooktacularly marvelous evening of music to kick off our school concert season.  Attendance for all students is mandatory - and you won't want to miss it anyway as our concerts always promise to be amazingly great - and free!  

Questions?  Please contact Patty Lankenau or Mr. Oppenheimer.

Have a great rest of the week!
