Graduation – May 19

The GRC Concert Band, Symphonic Band, and Percussion Ensemble will combine for our annual graduation band on May 19th to send out all of our seniors in style.

All Band students are required to attend. This event serves as our final exam. If graduation is rained out on Thursday, we will follow the same schedule on FRIDAY, which will again be a required final exam grade. Please plan on this rain date being a reality so that there are no surprises.

Dress is Black band polo shirt and khaki shorts.

Here’s the schedule:

5:30 – Arrive on Campbell Campus to Park (IT WILL BE A NIGHTMARE )

6:00 – Seated in band section on football field.

6:40 – Pre Graduation Concert begins

  • America The Beautiful
  • Winchester March
  • Kentucky Pride
  • Star Wars: The Force Awakens

7:00 – Seniors Enter (Pomp and Circumstance)

8:00 – Ceremony Concludes (Winchester March)

We will need help loading equipment after the performance from all percussionists. Leadership team will be responsible for stacking chairs and stands. We should be done unloading at GRC around 9pm.
