Hello all, welcome to last week of November – can you believe it?
With that in mind please be mindful of PRACTICING every week and ensuring you don’t miss any rehearsals. There were a lot of absences and lates last week – make sure if you are sick you communicate with myself and Mr. Davis so you are excused. Please do not schedule appointments during rehearsal time, we are learning a lot of new music before the Winter Concert and EVERY rehearsal counts. A reminder that Choir and Strings are performing on December 18 and Vocal Jazz is performing on December 19. Our Musical Theatre dress rehearsal for Sunday Morning Fever is December 10th call time at 12:30 and rehearsal from 1-3:00 (Pro-D Day) and our performance is December 12 at the Evening of Theatre with our Drama Department in the Reynolds Theatre.
Quick reminder that we are getting Yearbook photos this year for all of our ensembles! Strings will need to wear their uniform of ALL BLACK (Dress pants, shirt, sweater, dress or skirt -with black tights or leggings and black shoes and socks) on Thursday at lunch in the Strings/Choir Annex – please dress professionally and don’t forget your instrument. No uniform = no picture in the yearbook. Choir/VJ will get their photos done on Concert Nights in December.
Any extra Junior Trip forms and Deposits floating around, please turn them in to myself or Mr. Davis as soon as possible so we have an idea of numbers for the trip this year. If you lost your form there are extras in the choir room – this is open to CHOIR and BAND students!
Tis the Season for getting sick, so make sure you are getting enough sleep, drinking a lot of water and taking care of yourself!
