Solo and Ensemble Registration Done!

47 student registered to sing a solo at our Feb. 3rd Solo and Ensemble Contest at Paschal High School! This is incredible! Make sure you are practicing as much as possible. The practice rooms will be open with permission from the directors. And we will have sign up schedules for coachings the next few weeks.

Two things to keep in mind for soloists:

1. This district pays for each student's registration fee therefore students who back out of their solo at this point will owe a $15 penalty made payable to the Paschal Choir Booster Club.

2. Each student must pay $30 to their accompanist. The check should again be made out the Paschal Choir Booster Club. This pays for a 15 minute run through as well as the performance on February 3rd. Payment is due January 26th.
