Solo & Ensemble Is Here! Read THOROUGHLY To Ensure You Are Up To Speed! 

Welcome to S&E Week! This week means a lot for our program! We have many great performances and opportunities to showcase our learning as well as a great opportunity to serve our peers in FBA District 8 at SITE HOST for our annual Jazz/S&E/Auxiliary MPA performances!

The performance schedule should be released at some point today (yes, this is late…. still waiting to receive this from the District folks) AND our shift worker sign up will be posted first thing Monday morning for students to begin choosing their times to come and assist for this event. It is an expectation that EACH OF OUR MEMBERS within the program work one shift throughout the festival. This unique opportunity also will provide a great opportunity to earn much needed volunteer hours. You may earn as many as you can work throughout the weekend. Shift times are as follows:

  • Friday S&E/Auxiliary
    • Set Up Crew: 2:30 PM – 4 PM
    • Shift 1: 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM
    • Shift 2: 5:15 PM – 7:15 PM
    • Shift 3: 7 PM – 9 PM
  • Saturday S&E/Auxiliary
    • Shift 1: 8 AM – 10 AM
    • Shift 2: 9:45 AM – 11:45 AM
    • Shift 3: 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM
    • Shift 4: 1:15 PM – 3:15 PM
    • Shift 5: 3 PM – 5 PM
    • Tear Down Crew: 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM
  • Jobs that you can sign up for include: Judge Runner, Help Desk, Office Help, Campus/Parking, Auxiliary Assistant.
  • For your shift, members should wear an APK BAND T-Shirt to ensure you are a visible, available, customer service representative for Apopka High. Jeans or shorts are appropriate.
  • For our Brass, Woodwind, and Percussion performances, members should wear their Tuxedo uniforms. For all other S&E events, you are to dress NICELY and appropriately for this performance environment. Jeans or shorts are not an appropriate option.

In addition to our student support element to S&E, we have a great opportunity to earn funds through concessions offered by our Booster organization. We will need parent support on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday to make this a reality for our organization. These is one of our best methods to earn much needed funds for our program!

This coming week represents the culmination of many incredible things for our program! Great performances! Hard work! Commitment! Effort! Service! and More! I am looking forward to seeing and hearing our program make incredible music and provide wonderful, welcoming space for others to do the same!

Great Job Jazz Ensemble 1 @ Epcot!
