Parents,


Our Annual Solo Festival is on MONDAY! If your students signed up to perform, they should have received their scheduled time. Students must arrive at least 20 minutes before their scheduled time and will be ready to leave as soon as they are done performing. They will receive their comment sheets and awards later that week.


Our next performance will be at LHS on May 1st. Students will need to wear nice dress clothes and nice shoes. Please no shorts, t-shirts, or tennis shoes. The concert will begin at 6:30 p.m. Students will need to arrive no later than 5:30 p.m. so that we may rehearse as a group before the concert.


Students have been working very hard on learning new skills on their instruments. All classes are working on advanced finger patterns and different bowing techniques. We are really looking forward to showing off our progress for you at our May 1st performance!


This week we passed out information for our festival performance on Monday, May 15th. All students MUST complete all four requirements in order to be eligible to attend this festival. Permission forms MUST be complete and turned in by Monday, April 17th.


If you have any questions please let us know!
