• Percussion Ensemble
     
     
     
    Looking forward to a great year in percussion ensemble! If you are a percussionist at SMS in grades 6, 7, or 8, consider joining us! This is a fantastic opportunity to play more percussion and to learn different percussion skills! Feel free to ask Dr. Slot (jslotwinski@scarsdaleschools.org) for more information.
     
    Rehearsals will begin in January and will be on Monday mornings starting at 7:20am. Students will need a ride to school to participate in Percussion Ensemble. 
     
    ______________________________________________________________________
     
     
    We'll have 2 spring performances - one in May and one in late May/ early June (dates below). The late May/early June performance is a field trip. More info TBA.
     
    *** Students must attend rehearsals consistently to be in this ensemble and perform.
     
    REHEARSAL SCHEDULE
     
    *** INTEREST MEETING is after school on Tuesday, January 9, 2024. Given the school break schedule and parent-teacher conference dates, this makes the most sense.
     
    ALL REHEARSALS will be MONDAY MORNINGS BEFORE SCHOOL at 7:20am.
