Night of the Arts Concert

Our first concert of the year is quickly approaching!

The fine arts programs at Cooper and McEachern are all working together to put on this multi-grade Cooper Night of the Arts at 7:00 on Thursday, September 22. 

The band members who will participate in this concert are those in the Symphonic Bands (2nd and 5th periods). Students will need to wear all black: black pants, shoes, and shirt. This is the typical concert attire for our ladies, and the only change for gentlemen is a black shirt instead of our normal white dress shirts (so a black polo school uniform shirt will be acceptable). Students will need to be at Cooper at 6:30. Parents are encouraged to find seats early - we will have a packed house!


Our next band concert will be in December and will include every band student from 6th through 8th grade. 

8th Grade Updates

Next week is a busy one for 8th grade band families!
