Dear Middle School Band Parents,
I would like to invite you to the annual Clark Cluster Band Pasta Concerto Dinner on Saturday, January 26, 2019. The evening will feature a great dinner, wonderful music from the bands of Clark High School, Hendrick Middle School, Schimelpfenig Middle School and Carpenter Middle School, as well as our Silent Auction and Raffle. The Pasta Concerto Dinner has become one of our favorite band functions of the year. Enjoying the musical Clark cluster can be a great time for you and your children to witness the nice things about the Clark Cluster Band Program. It can be an opportunity for you to examine the quality of the high school program as well as the wonderful direction that all of our Middle School bands are taking. The Clark parents do a tremendous job of hosting this event and making sure that everyone leaves with a great feeling about your children in our band programs.
Keep in mind that in addition to the musical aspect, this function is also a fundraiser: all students will benefit. As we have done in the past, the middle school band programs will receive one dollar for every adult dinner ticket that is pre-ordered per school, by Friday, January 18, 2019. There will be a Silent Auction that starts when the doors open at 5:00 pm, with bidding on various items closing throughout the evening. Auction items this year include tickets to local entertainment events, many local restaurants and Merchant gift certificates, and much more. There will also be an opportunity to bid on “Theme Baskets” donated by the Clark Band Students, as well as purchase raffle tickets for a door prize drawing.
Tickets are limited! We have sold out the last 16 years. I would like to encourage you to buy your tickets early. Enclosed please find an order form. Send your check made out to Clark Band Boosters, along with the order form to your child's band director. Tickets may also be purchased via the Membership Toolkit on the band website, www.clarkbands.com. The Deadline for pre-orders is Friday, January 18th. Don’t forget to order a ticket for your band students, too!
I look forward to meeting you. Feel free to introduce yourself to me and ask any questions about the High School Band Program.
Director of Bands
