Choir/Strings/Musical Updates Week of Nov 9-13

Hello all,
I hope you end with a strong week of last term. As always, stay in contact (via email) with us if you are ill so that we know you are excused from class. Do your best to attend rehearsals and and FINISH STRONG. Adapting to this new way of learning and making music has been challenging but so rewarding as well! I am very happy with the progress you have been making in your ensembles, so be proud of what you have accomplished so far. You are outstanding and I so appreciate your passion for creating beautiful music in a strange and difficult time. We love you all and thank you for the music, it has enriched our lives more than we can express! Stick with it, good things are coming your way!
