Hello Whitney Chorus Families,
This is a reminder our Spring Concert is Thursday, May 25th, 6:30 p.m. at Enfield High School Auditorium! Student groups participating will be chorus, band and strings. Invite as many people as you’d like! There are no tickets required to attend as the show is free for anyone who’d like to watch. All students will need to arrive at the Enfield High School choir room no later than 6:00 pm. It is imperative that students arrive on time so we can warm up and prepare to go on stage. This is a very exciting experience for our students and I know they are excited to share what we’ve accomplished this year!
I also want to remind that students should wear black bottoms, black shoes, and a plain white or black top (or Enfield Music shirt). Students will be sitting with their ensemble for the duration of the concert when they are not on stage to show support for the other musicians performing. Students will meet up with their families and friends in the auditorium at the end of the concert after they have retrieved their belongings from the band room. If anything changes, I will let you know.
Please don’t hesitate to email me with any questions or concerns you might have. I look forward to seeing everyone there!
