Chicago Trip Information

Chicago is almost here!

We don't have an itinerary set yet, but here's what you need to know for right now!

1. All of the music we will play at our performance (10 total pieces) is on eClass under "Content". I'm not printing music for anyone--- it's online! PLEASE make sure that you can play each of these pieces! We have very limited rehearsal time and we can't waste it teaching people the notes!

2. After school rehearsals begin NEXT MONDAY! Please come to as many as you possibly can! Our success depends on these rehearsals! They will be from 2:20 to 3:00 pm on the following dates:

Monday, March 23, 2015

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Thursday, March 26, 2015

Monday, March 30, 2015

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

Thursday, April 2, 2015

3. PARENTS MEETING!! Thursday, March 26 at 7:00 pm in the Orchestra room! Come with any questions you have and be ready to sign permission/agreement forms and medication forms (giving me your permission to carry your student's medication and get it to them when they need it.).

4. As of 10:00 am this morning (3.17.15) we have ONE spot available on this trip. The price is $750 and we will fill it on a first come, first served basis. If you are interested in having your student travel with us, email me and send in a deposit of at least $100. We can come up with a payment plan so that your student can go with us; no need to scrape together the whole cost. Again, this has to be done on a first come, first served basis, so if you're interested, make sure you do this ASAP.
