[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] July Booster Meeting

Greeting band & guard family,

The regular business meeting of the boosters has been changed from its regular date (usually the second Thursday of any given month) to July 28 due to some scheduling conflicts.   We will meet at the Roth’s Sunnyslope coffee area at 7pm and have a brief meeting to clear any business from the summer.
Please join us!  We have some open volunteer slots for the marching season and would love to have you get involved with your student’s program!!  We urgently need a couple of volunteers to help out our food crew and get the meals and such planned for the fall.  Please email me for information on this!
The next regular business meeting will be August 13, at 7pm.  Location to be announced, so stay tuned for that!
Wishing everyone a safe and happy summer!
Anne Nelson

[Sprague Band News] many thanks and many apologies

Greetings Band Family,

Tonight at jazz night (which was fabulous by the way!!), someone mentioned to me that they had sent me an email that I didn’t get – which is strange, because as many of you know, I’m fairly constantly on my phone checking for email and texts!  
In digging through the website email to find the problem, I discovered that email was accumulating in another place and not forwarding on to me.  It’s all fixed now, but please accept my apologies for not responding if you emailed me trying to volunteer, donate or otherwise help out the band in the last couple months!!  If you replied to any email that I’ve sent to the group from the president address, it kicked it over to this other address.  As you can imagine, I’m fairly mortified.
Many thanks for all your patience – the problem is fixed now!!  Thanks to that someone for letting me know – and have a great end to a great school year!
See you at band awards on Monday Night at 6:30 in the band room!
Anne Nelson
