How Do I Get There?
During the Winter/Spring season, the EEU does not provide group transportation. Students/Parents provide their own transportation to and from all Winter Percussion Ensemble Competitions. If you as the parent are not able to attend, it is up to you and your student to make arrangements to carpool with someone else. Make sure your student knows who they are going with.
Do parents need to pay to come in and watch?
Yes. Tickets are sold at the competition site and are usually around $10 – 15 with the exception of championships which is more. If we make it to championships, more detailed information will be sent out to purchase tickets ahead of time.
What do we do as parents?
Although the students do most of the work loading and unloading the trailers, we could still use a few parents to help as well. We haul both equipment trailers to these competitions and they are full. If you’re not helping with equipment, we encourage you to go purchase your ticket and go into the gym to find a seat to cheer on our students. After the performance all of the students will push back to the equipment trailers to help load up. They may not leave until all equipment is loaded on the trailers and their section leader has released them. All students will meet back at Esperanza to unload the trailers.
