The Century Resources order will be in next Thursday, April 25th. Please plan for your student to bring home their items, or arrange to come by the school by 6:00pm. The chorus has no way to keep your items past the delivery day, so please don't forget to come by and pick up your fundraiser.
Auditions for positions in the Sotto Voce and Chamber Ensemble will be held after school on Monday, April 22 and Tuesday, April 23, in the Chorus Room.
Sunday, April 28th gives us a unique fundraising opportunity! Last year, the choir sang at Antioch Baptist Church during the Sunday service, and again afterwards, in the fellowship hall, while the boosters provided a spaghetti lunch. The Chorus received money from the freewill offering that was collected as people came into the fellowship hall to eat.
They have invited us back this year, and again, the choir will sing during the service and afterwards, while the boosters provide the spaghetti lunch. This opportunity is open to ANY choir student, whether in Concert, Chamber or Sotto Voce. We will need lots of booster parents to help with the donation of food items. Please plan to attend, hear the choir sing, and donate some sauce or salad fixings to help us out.
Contact Cindy Lloyd about donating food items.
