Not a flurry in sight, but Holiday Concert is here!
The kids are excited as we plan to move our show from the Performing Arts Studio to the stage in Kershaw School! For many students, this will be their first time on the stage. Both Choruses, Band and Jazz-Rock Ensemble have been hard at work all fall for this performance. They report to their assigned rooms at 6:15 on Thursday, December 17th and the show starts at 7:00 sharp!
Please check the Holiday Concert page for details on what to wear and for any handouts I have sent regarding the concert.
We have been busy working on our Holiday Concert program. The concert will be December 17, 2015 at 7:00 pm. There will be two days of dress rehearsals during the school day. All of our equipment will be moved from the Performing Arts Studio to the stage.
Combined Chorus will present holiday music prior to the Mt. Ephraim Christmas Parade of Lights. We were kindly invited to sing by the Fire Department. See the activity page for more info. Permission slips are due this week.
We have decided to wait until later in the school year to entertain with Band and Chorus members a the John West Center and Veteran's Home. I am projecting March as our target for that trip. More soon!
