Musical Auditions/Choir/String Updates Sept 16

Hello all!

Thank you for a great start up these past few weeks, it has been so amazing meeting everyone and hearing some very strong musicianship already in our bands and choirs – I am so excited to get to start rehearsing and solidifying groups! Please pay attention to when rehearsal times are and know that if you are not signed up or you want to try singing in our choirs, all are welcome! I can get you signed up no problem and feel free to bring a friend to rehearsal, if they want to join up with us it isn’t too late!

Thank you to all of the parents and students that came out to our Music Parents BBQ and AGM, it was really great meeting new parents and reconnecting with returning parents. Your support means a lot to us, and we look forward to working with your child to expand and improve upon their musical skills this year!

Choir and Strings Information should have made it home last week, all students need to return the contact information on the bottom of the page in order to be added to our emailing lists to keep up to date with everything we have going on in the upcoming months.

Uniform Distribution Days are coming up Friday September 27th (4pm-6pm) and Saturday, September 28th (9am-3:30pm) and that means CHOIR students will need to rent a choir scarf or blue tie (same as band one if they are in band) and students will also purchase a Reynolds Choir Folder that will be theirs to keep. Please find Uniform forms and payment info here: https://reynoldsmusic.ca/uniforms/uniform-info/

*No student will be denied a uniform due to financial hardship. Please email with any concerns (kkerr@sd61.bc.ca)

Congratulations to all of the students that were elected to the Student Music Council this week, it’s a great team!

Musical Theatre Auditions for Nice Work If You Can Get It:

It’s a busy week this week with Musical Theatre Auditions happening everyday after school. If you are signed up, please come to the theatre directly after school on the day you are signed up. If you have questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to come see me in my office at lunch this week (I’m in the band room). Good luck to all that have signed up, don’t forget to sell it and go for it! I’m looking forward to seeing what you have prepared this week!
