Sanderson HS - The Capital City Band Expo -
Sat. Oct 22nd
Jordan Band's 4th
Competition of the season is Saturday, October 23rd at Sanderson HS
in Raleigh. This competition is scheduled as a prelims and finals competition.
For our new parents and students, this means if we place in the top 8 in the
afternoon, we will have an opportunity to perform again later in the evening.
All students must be at JHS at 11am.
Please have a good meal before you arrive. We will be departing Jordan by
1:00pm by Activity
Bus and expect to arrive at Sanderson before 2:00pm. I will try to give the
students on opportunity to eat concessions when we arrive, but that will depend
on whether the competition is running early, on time or late. We may have an
opportunity to go into the stadium and watch bands perform, however our warm up
time is slated for 3:15pm and our dress time at 2:45pm. Our performance time is
prelims awards being held at 5:30pm. If we make finals, they will begin at
7:15pm with "The Capital Cup" awards ceremony being held at 9:45pm. Please bring
warm clothes as fall is in full swing. We will leave at the conclusion of awards
which I would think would take roughly an hour or so. The Jordan Band has
traditionally stopped off at "Fat Daddy's Restaurant" after our Sanderson
performance and I would like to keep that tradition going. Here are the
6201 Glenwood Ave.
Raleigh, NC 27612
Our arrival time at
Fat Daddy's will depend on whether we make finals or not. The same can be said
about when we expect to arrive back at Jordan. I will ask all the students to
call their parents to make sure everyone knows our plan after the prelims awards
ceremony. If we do not make finals, I would expect to be home before 9pm. If we
do make finals, I would expect to be home by 12am.
Thank you for your
continued support. Please do come and cheer us on at Sanderson!
