    8th Grade Concert December 10th!

    Hello Parents of Grade 8 Band Students!

    It has been such a pleasure working with your children in ensemble rehearsals this fall! I am looking forward to seeing all this group of students can accomplish during their 8th grade year.

    To kick off the set of 8th Grade Band Concert experiences, the Grade 8 Band will be performing in a joint concert with Bands from New Canaan High School.

    The concert will take place Tuesday, December 10th at 7:00 PM in the New Canaan High School Auditorium. 

    The 8th Grade Band will perform a piece to begin the concert. The High School Bands will then perform several selections to showcase the possible options for enrollment for 8th graders next year. As a grand finale, the 8th Grade Band and the High School Band will combine to perform the Captain America March (from the recent Marvel series). 

    In preparation for this event, the 8th grade will be rehearsing with the High School Bands on Monday, December 9, from 12:30-1:50 PM. This will include students leaving Saxe during their regularly scheduled ensemble rehearsal, walking to NCHS, rehearsing in the NCHS auditorium, then returning to Saxe around 1:45 PM to be back at Saxe in time for dismissal. During the crossing of South Avenue, we enlist the help of Officer Deak (Saxe SRO), to ensure safety.

    Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns regarding this event. 

    Thank you for your continued support,

    Ben Kibbey
