IT IS CHOIR CONCERT WEEK.

I am so excited to sing in a great space for the end of the year concert, you are sounding great and this will be the perfect place to showcase all of your hard work. Be sure to BE PREPARED with your MUSIC, A WATER BOTTLE AND YOUR CHOIR UNIFORM OF ALL BLACK AND BLUE TIE OR SCARF. If you are new to choir I will bring a scarf or tie for you – look sharp and be professional!

WE WILL ONLY REHEARSE TUESDAY EVENING at St. Dunstan’s Church, 1806 San Juan Ave (about 5 min away from Reynolds). Students are responsible for getting to and from the venue on their own, so please arrange transportation with your family.
