AFTER SCHOOL REHEARSALS BEGIN THIS WEEK

As stated in the handbook, after school rehearsals will occur in preparation for the UIL competition. Participation is mandatory and grade will be given. Failure to attend could result in dismissal from the performing ensemble. If your child has a school related conflict, I will contact their sponsor for verification. These rehearsals are imperative for our success at contest.

Rehearsals are 2:45 - 4 and a late bus is available.


THIS WEEK:

Tuesday, March 26th: Tenor/Bass (2nd and 3rd period) 2:45 - 4.

Possible Performance for 3 Varsity groups

I have just received an invitation to perform for other 5A choirs in our contest performance space. It would involve our three Varsity groups. I will check other school events and our accompanist and instrumentalist availability.


Here are details about the event:


Tuesday, April 16th aprrox 4 - 8pm at Willis High School. The students would wear jeans and choir shirt. This was not on the calendar, but is a wonderful opportunity if it is doable. We would perform for and hear Magnolia, Magnolia West, Lake Creek, Caney Creek and Willis High school and have an opportunity to perform at the contest site. Please let me know of any school conflicts. I will let you know later in the week if we are attending.
