Hopewell-Loudon Bands

Spring Concert Change

I am pleased to announce that the Hopewell-Loudon Bands will hold concerts this spring.  Due to Covid restrictions, the date, times and location of the concerts have changed from the original plan for this year.  All band concerts will be held on SATURDAY, MAY 15  in the Scarlet Gym.  The date change is due to seating limitations at indoor events.  It should be noted that the Band Concerts are not the same day as the choir concerts.  Mrs. Daniel and I felt that it was important to get as many people as possible into our audiences to enjoy your childrens’ progress.  By moving the band concerts to the Scarlet Gym, we are able to nearly triple audience capacity, although still limited.  Because of the limitations, each band will have a separate concert.  Students and audience members will have to strictly adhere to report and departure times.  It is important that we do not exceed our audience capacity.  See the schedule below for these times:

5th Grade Band - Concert starts at 4:00 pm

Report time is 3:40 pm

Audience and students out of the building by 4:40

6th Grade Band  - Concert starts at 5:00 pm

Report time is 4:40 pm

Audience and students out of the building by 5:40

Junior High Band - Concert starts at 6:00 pm

Report time is 5:40 pm

Audience and students out of building by 6:45

High School Band - Concert starts at 7:00 pm

& Jazz Band Report time is 6:30

(No hard depart time)

*High School Band Awards will be distributed this night as well, during the concert.  There will not be a separate band awards banquet.  

Students will be given tickets for the concerts.  Only people with tickets will be permitted into the concert.  If you receive more tickets than you will use, please return the extras to school so I can redistribute them to other families.  

We are looking forward to sharing our performances with you.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
