[Sprague Band News] How to order concert wear

This post contains instructions on how to obtain suitable concert attire.

Ladies:

The Sprague standard black concert dress is available from: “Tuxedo Wholesaler”.
This is the URL for their online order form.
The dress style is “Jordan – Classical”. It must be Black only – not the purple or blue one.
Cost: $57.50 plus shipping.
The web page has a sizing chart and measurement instructions.
This is the required concert dress for Wind Ensemble, Orchestra, and Symphony. It is also suitable (though not required) for Symphonic Band. Since they’re lightly worn, one concert dress will likely last your entire career at Sprague. It is machine-washable. Since we always use this same dress style, it can be resold to another student after graduation. Your dress will need to be hemmed to length after it is delivered.

Gentlemen:

The standard concert attire for men (all ensembles) is a plain black tuxedo, black bow tie, and white tux shirt.  No vest or cummerbund. Suspenders are your option. Tuxes can often be found at local formal shops, or vendors such as:
or Uniformal Wearhouse

Costs are comparable to that of a concert dress.

Buy the cheapest plain black tux you can find, and you’ll look fine on stage. You’ll also be in good shape for any formal social event. After you’ve rented a tux once or twice, you might as well have owned one outright.

Please direct any specific personal questions or issues to Dr. Greenwood.

[Sprague Band News] Wind Ensemble State Competition in Corvallis this Saturday

Hey Band (Family!)!

Dr. Greenwood needs two chaperons and a equipment truck driver for Saturday’s competition in Corvallis.
Chaperons need to ride the bus and stay for the afternoon/evening – buses leave at 2:45 from Sprague and return about 10:30 pm (ish)
The equipment truck driver needs to pick up the truck at 1pm, load the percussion onto it at Sprague and drive it to Corvallis – Band will be finished with the equipment around 5:15, so the driver can then load up and go home.
If you can help with either of these very important tasks, please email Dr. Greenwood directly at:  GREENWOOD_RICHARD@salkeiz.k12.or.us
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP AND GOOD LUCK WIND ENSEMBLE!!

[Sprague Band News] Urgent Need for Rummage Sale THIS weekend

Greetings Band & Guard Family,

As most of you already know, we are hosting a rummage sale at Sprague Commons this Saturday.  The money raised from this sale goes towards our general budget needs and bits of it can be found in every program we support – from Winterguard to Wind Ensemble and everything in between!  
Please lend a hand if at all possible - and PLEASE REMIND your student to sign up for a shift or two tomorrow in the band room!!!  We have had a few sign up, but need at least three times what we’ve got.
We need all hands on deck and have urgent needs in two areas:
1.  Set up Friday after school, and tear down Saturday afternoon/evening
2.  the 7:30 – 12:30 shift on Saturday morning – we need a couple more adult volunteers for this and a handful of students – this is the busiest time during the sale
Thanks for your consideration and for making time to lend a hand – it’s appreciated!  If you can help with any of these shifts, please email:
fundraising@spragueband.org immediately.  We need you to make this a great sale!
Thanks again!
Anne Nelson
