Oh, Baby!

Senior Photo Deadline for the 2018 Pops Concert is Monday, May 14!

The Samohi Bands have a long-running tradition of including baby & early childhood photos of graduating Seniors in the program for the Pops Concert, the Concert Bands’ final concert of the year. We include baby photos of all Seniors, including Seniors in the Jazz, Marching Band, and Color Guard programs.

Senior Band Families, please send us:

  • One baby/early childhood image of your Senior student. It’s especially fun, if you have a photo related to music or instruments, but any childhood photo will do.
  • One recent photo of your student. Scanned Senior portraits look great, but any photo you like will be fine.

Before you upload photos, please zoom in on them to be sure that the resolution is good. Try to use a photo that is at least 300dpi. The same photos will be displayed in the Senior Slideshow.

Please EMAIL PHOTOS to samohiband@gmail.com

Queridas familias de los los músicos en 12° grado,
El Concierto “Pops” del 25 de mayo es también nuestra noche para celebrar su tiempo con las Bandas de Samohi. Las bandas tienen una larga tradición de incluir fotos de los estudiantes cuando eran bebés o niños pequeños en el programa para el Concierto Pops, el concierto final del año escolar. Incluimos fotos de todos de todos los músicos, los estudiantes en los programas de Jazz, Marching Band y Color Guard incluidos. Por favor use este formulario para subir:

  • Una imagen de su estudiante cuando era bebé (o niño pequeño). Es especialmente divertido, si tiene una foto relacionada con música o instrumentos, pero cualquier foto de la infancia servirá.
  • Una foto reciente de su estudiante. Los escaneados de los retratos para el anuario se ven geniales, pero cualquier foto que te guste estará bien.

Intenta encontrar una foto que sea al menos 300 ppp. Las mismas fotos se mostrarán en el video llevado a la gran pantalla durante el concierto.

Please EMAIL PHOTOS to samohiband@gmail.com
