Attention third-grade families:

An important informational meeting regarding your child’s participation in our instrumental music program starting in the 2020-2021 school year is scheduled for Wednesday, February 5th at Irondequoit High School. It's for all students, parents and guardians of incoming fourth-grade students for 2020-2021. 
The schedule:

6:30-7:30 p.m. Rogers families/students; start in the IHS cafeteria

7:15-8:30 p.m. Iroquois families/students; start in the IHS auditorium

6:30-7:15 p.m. Rogers families/students meet in the cafeteria to try out instruments

7:15-7:30 p.m. IHS band and orchestra students provide a short demonstration and performance for Rogers and Iroquois students/families.

7:30-8:30 p.m. Iroquois families/students meet in the cafeteria to try out instruments.

Fourth grade is an exciting year because your child will have the opportunity to begin participating in our strong instrumental music program. All students will be given the opportunity to learn how to play a band or string instrument next year. At the meeting, you will hear a special short performance from our IHS Wind Ensemble and Philharmonic Orchestra. We will also discuss the collaborative process that you, your child and teachers will experience over the next few months to determine which instrument matches your child’s interest. In addition, your child will have opportunities to see and touch instruments, so they can begin to determine what they will enjoy playing the most.

If you are unable to make the meeting and have questions regarding the process, contact our K-12 Music Coordinator and Director of Performing Arts, Mr. Steven Zugelder at (585) 336-2948 or
