Coffee Concerts

Hello parents!

You are cordially invited to Mesa Music’s first performance of the year, on Thursday October 25 for our 12th annual Coffee Concerts!

Each class, or ensemble, will put on an “open house” style performance, where you get to see a little bit of what we do on a daily basis.  7th and 8th grade groups will conclude the performance time with one or two pieces we’ve worked up over the first weeks of school.  

Each performance will start roughly around the time their class meets, and last 30-40 minutes.  Bands will perform in the Multi Purpose Room (MPR), while Strings will be in the Music Room (F2).  The Mesa Verde Music Boosters will be providing coffee for its namesake event.

Here’s the schedule:

  • Wind Symphony: 9:00a - 9:55a, MPR
  • Wind Ensemble: 10:00a - 10:52a, MPR
  • String Orchestra: 10:57a - 11:49a, F2
  • Chamber Strings: 11:54a - 12:46p, F2
  • Puma Band: 12:34p - 1:26p, MPR
  • Puma Strings: 2:28p - 3:20p, F2

If your son/daughter has their performance before their PE class, please send them to school dressed in concert attire, with a casual change of clothes for after PE.

If your son/daughter has their performance after their PE class, please send them to school dressed casually, and have them change into concert attire at the end of their PE class.

Proper concert attire is outlined in the Music Handbook, but is generally all black semi-formal wear from the waist down, with Mesa Music T-shirts for Puma Band/Strings, white button up oxford shirts and burgundy ties for WS/SO, and black button up oxford shirts and burgundy ties for WE/CS.  Mesa T-shirts and ties for the appropriate ensembles will be handed out the week of the concerts.

We hope to see you there! 

Kurt Gray, Director
