Music News- Holiday 2014

A Note from the Directors

Dear Parents and Friends,

It's hard to believe that it's already time for our winter concerts! All of our music ensembles have been working very hard to prepare music for our upcoming winter concerts, and we are very excited to share those with you. Please see the articles below about specific concert information. We certainly hope you can join us!

We'd like to extend a warm "THANK YOU" to our parents and friends of the program who have donated to our Music Patron Fund. This money is already in use helping our HSJH students in their music activities. If you'd still like to donate, please log onto your child's Blackboard where you can find a form and more information. Every little bit helps! Thank you in advance for your support of our program.

From all of us to all of you, we wish you a warm, safe, and wonderful holiday season!

Sincerely,

Ben Yoder, Cindy Johnson, Michelle Oyler and Michelle Yoder
