Winter Concert

Middle School Winter Band  Concert

Dear Vista Verde Parents,                                                                                                       

You are cordially invited to attend our exiting Winter Concert on Wednesday, December 8, 2021.  The evening’s program will feature our middle school band players from grades 6-8.  The Concert Band and Symphonic Bands will be playing a wonderful variety of music for your enjoyment.  The event will be recorded for those who cannot be in attendance.

Due to current Covid guidelines, this event will adhere to the IUSD practices that everyone must wear a mask at all times, maintain social distance, and review the “daily health screening for students” (available on our school home page) information prior to attending. 

This concert will be held outside on the black top at Vista Verde School.

Please join us at:  Vista Verde School, 6 Federation Way, Irvine, CA  92603

Band Concert Dress:

           Traditionally Concert Dress is pretty formal.  I want to make this easy for the students; so I would like you to dress as nice as you can with what you have at home.  Boys: at the least a collarded long sleeve button down shirt and slacks.  Nice shoes.  Girls: dress or knee length skirt or pants.

           Your clothing does not need to be black and white.  Wear the best shoes you can.  If you don’t fit into your nice shoes wear the best you have.  Nobody will be penalized for their clothing at this event.  Please avoid wearing shorts and or t-shirts.  I also suggest wearing a jacket because the concert is outside and it could be very chilly.

We are looking forward to performing first concert of this school year.  If you have any questions regarding this concert, please contact us at Vista Verde School.

Sincerely,
