Choir, String, Musical Updates Week of Nov 13

Hello all,

Firstly let me say a huge congratulations to my choir students and all the band students that participated in our Remembrance Day events and the Back In Action Concert this past week- you all sounded spectacular and I am so proud of our incredible music students, well done!

Another big week coming up – so enjoy this extra day to get prepped for everything happening this week! All rehearsals are business as usual this week, so please come prepared and on time!

Our Choir Festival to Comox is this weekend, November 16 and 17, please ensure you have a scarf or blue tie for our performance this weekend and your choir binder – I will still accept payment for these items so bring it in this week if you have not already! Make sure your all black uniform is clean and professional looking for this weekend’s performance, look sharp! If anyone has not turned in payment or forms tomorrow is the very last day I can accept them!

Remember we are only about a month away from our Winter Concert (December 18 and 19) – so do what you need to do to feel ready and prepared in ALL of your ensembles which means PRACTICE:) Hillside Night of Light Tickets are due this Friday by the latest, please bring in your envelopes with the money you have collected to myself or Mr. Davis.

Make sure you bring your music folder, with the mass piece in it, your all black uniform and your blue scarf or tie. Please take gravol before hand if you are prone to car sickness. Bring any snacks or activities or homework with you to use on the bus, it is a long ride (about 3 hours up to Comox).
