Our first concert of the school year is tomorrow, Monday, October 7 at 7 p.m.  Students need to be at the school in full concert attire at 6 p.m. to warm up.  
There will be Orchestra logo products for sale such as water bottles, drawstring bags, and reusable straws for $5 each.  We will be kicking off our fall fundraiser with samples of Butter Braids.  There is also a fun drawing to win great gift cards from local HR businesses. Tickets will be $5/each, or 5 for $20.  We can only accept cash!
And to end the night, head over to Dairy Queen (9435 S. University Blvd.) for a sweet treat - 20% of sales will come back to the Orchestra when you mention "HRHS Orchestra".

Your student should have their attire now; if they do not have their attire yet, please have them see Mrs. Jonas this week. All alterations must be completed before the concert date. Immediately following the concert will be a Dairy Queen restaurant night so we can all celebrate with sweet treats - another HRHS Orchestra tradition. Our Orchestras will receive 20% of the proceeds from this night so join us!

Attire closet open tomorrow

Just wanted to remind you that Boosters will be at HRHS tomorrow 8/26 from 5:30-9 p.m. We will be in the Orchestra room helping families find pre-owned attire for the upcoming year.  This is an awesome opportunity to save money if your student needs new attire; we still have lots of tuxes and some dresses.

Reminder:  Your returning student only needs new attire if their current dress or tux doesn't fit any longer or if they are changing from Overture/Symphony to Chamber this year.  All new students need to find pre-owned attire or take measurements for new attire.  These measurements are due to Mrs. Jonas by Friday, Sept. 6.

If you need to turn in used attire, you may bring it to the Orchestra room tomorrow night as well.  Please let us know as soon as possible if you have attire to turn in.  There are still quite a few families we have not heard from as to what their attire needs are for the year.

Attire deadline Monday

Reminder: The deadline to let us know about your dresses and tuxes for this year is this Monday, Aug. 12! We have only heard from a few people. Please let us know as soon as possible so we know what inventory we have to work with, as well as who will need new attire. We really appreciate your prompt response and cooperation. Thank you!
