Welcome to the MVMS Instrumental Music Page!


Dear Parents of Band and Orchestra Students,

This is just a reminder of our final band concert, happening next Tuesday evening, May 21st.  Our final orchestra concert is on Thursday, May 30, with more information coming soon!
Your kids are working hard, sounding good and are getting ready for an excellent performance! I will be sending home a hard copy of this information in the next two days, and have attached the flyer to this email as well.
What: Band Concert, featuring every band
Where: MVMS gymnasium
When: Tuesday, 5/21, at 7 pm; Students should meet in the gym at 6:30 pm.
Dress: Dress is the same as our winter concert:
  • Beginning band in band polos, nice jeans and tennis shoes
  • Intermediate band in band polos and black pants/skirt and socks/shoes
  • Advanced band in nice black and white dress clothes.
Length: The concert will be about an hour and 15 minutes.
Beginning and Intermediate students should also bring folding music stands if they have one. This will greatly help us as we transition quickly from group to group.
Finally, we would love to have treats at our concert again. Would you please consider bringing something for the performers to share? Also, I need a person or two to guard the treats so performers all get something before other non-performers do. Here is the sign up genius link:
Thank you! We are looking forward to playing for you!
See you then,
Mr. Paul Johnson
MVMS Band and Orchestra Director
