With all of the concerts and performances listed on our calendar it can sometimes be unclear when your child is performing. The following information should be helpful to those of you trying to determine when you should travel to NEMC to see your child perform. A list of performing group assignments will be emailed towards the end of the first week of the session.

 

 

 

Honor Recitals:

Honor recital programs are determined by audition and are not announced until the evening before the performance. The camp office does not receive this list, the best way to find out if your child is performing or not is to arrange with them to call you after the list is posted. During this second session 2012, honor recitals will be held August 3, 8, and 10.

 

Saturday 3pm Bowl Concerts

If your child performs with the Concert Orchestra, Concert Band, or Chamber Choir their concerts will be held at Bowl-in-the-Pines on Saturdays at 3pm EXCEPT for Family Weekend (August 3-5, 2012) when these groups will perform on Sunday at 3pm. The Jazz Band will perform on Saturday August 11th.

 

Sunday 3pm Bowl Concerts

    Hi NEMC! In the future, it’d be extremely helpful to list which groups are performing for each bowl concert on the calendar. I find I keep returning to the above paragraphs to decipher which bowl concert my son’s group(s) fall under, and I didn’t see anything about Stage Band above, which added to my confusion over Parents’ weekend. Maybe it’s because this is our first year, but I found the terminology confusing (eg. Stage Band which becomes Jazz Band after week 2, and Jazz Band is different from Jazz Ensemble!).
