The end of the year is near and we are making a final push to our Spring Concert. 

Spring Concert – Senior Honor Concert
Our final concert is on Friday, May 11th at 7pm. Doors will open at 6:45pm. The concert is in the newly renovated Martin HS Auditorium. You will get to experience the full effects of the auditorium – many of our selections have accompanying lights and slideshow elements. Please note the call times for each orchestra. Students should be in their seats, in tune and ready to warm up at the listed time:

Concert 2                   6:30pm                      Stage
Concert 1                   6:30pm                       Orchestra Room
Philharmonia             6:45pm                       Mirror Room
Symphonic                 7:15pm                        Mirror Room
Philharmonic             7:15pm                        Band Hall
Symphony                 7:45pm                        Choir Room

Students are required to stay for the entire concert to receive full credit. At the conclusion of the alma mater, students will turn in their concert uniforms. 

**We are still in need of several parent volunteers to hand out programs, sell Orchestra spirit wear and collect uniforms at the end of the night. Please contact Melissa Parsinen at Melissatexasmail@gmail.com if you are able to volunteer. 

Booster Club
Please join us for officer elections at the final Martin Orchestra Booster Club meeting on Tuesday, May 15th at 7pm at Colter’s.

Orchestra Banquet
Banquet is at the Fort Worth Club on Friday, May 18th from 6pm-11pm. Detailed information will be sent home next week. There are only a handful of tickets left.

2018-2019 Orchestra Placement
Each student has received an audition packet for their 2018-2019 orchestra placement. This audition must be uploaded to Charms by Friday, May 18th at 11:59pm. This date has changed because school is getting out sooner than expected. Each student’s recording is given a numerical grade. Students are then placed into orchestras based on performance and technical abilities, leadership & ambition. The orchestra placement results are posted in the orchestra room on the last day of school after the last bell has rung. Any questions regarding orchestra placement are answered in August.

2018-2019 Spring Trip
Our 2018-2019 Spring Trip destination will be announced in class before the end of the year. You will receive formal information about the 2019 Spring Trip at the beginning of next school year.
