Here are some FAQs regarding Sound and what happens next-

Q: When will we sign up for Sound and the 2022 Season?

A: The official registration date for Sound is Feb 26, 2022. However, we will ask students and families about their interest level in the next few weeks. Families will also have the opportunity to set up an account with our travel company and start raising funds for the Florida trip on Sept 15. We also plan to hold an open rehearsal on January 9th so that students can experience some of what we do (similar to what took place this fall).

Q: When do Sound rehearsals begin and how long are they?

A: Our tentative schedule for the 2022 Season can be found by clicking the button below. Keep in mind that things may change, but this will give you an idea of rehearsal dates and times.

Q: Why does Sound rehearse for so many hours in the summer?

A: We are very careful not to rehearse too long on weekends during the school year. We work hard to balance getting enough time in to generate the skills needed to be successful when we go "full time" following the conclusion of the school year. The summer hours are long but they are broken down into segments filled with a variety of activities and games. As the veteran members of Sound (and the alumni) will tell you "the days are both challenging and rewarding." Sound presents an opportunity for students to really focus on doing one thing really well for a few weeks in the summer. The intense focus not only creates a rewarding performance but develops a sense of community not often found in other places.

Q: How can I find out more about Sound?
