PHILLIES GAME WEATHER ANNOUNCEMENT

The weather is not exactly cooperating for a June Night Game. We play and sing regardless of the weather. Students need to be on time and ready to go.  Please have them eat something before they leave the house this afternoon.

Originally we asked the students to only wear a short sleeve shirt under their performance shirt but it will be damp and chilly tonight. Students may wear a long sleeve shirt under their performance shirt but please make sure the shirt is a neutral color such as white, black or gray. Do not wear a bright color long sleeve shirt under our green performance shirt.

See everyone at the game!

In addition, we will offer Chorus Clinic every Thursday morning starting Thursday April 9th. Students are not required to come to morning Chorus Clinic, however, it is a great time for vocalists to catch up that miss afterschool rehearsals or study halls. Of course students should be practicing on their own using our online tools. We will add two special Thursday afterschool rehearsals to put the finishing touches on our concert. April 23 for all chorus students and April 30th for 7th and 8th graders. Don’t forget to check out our choral spotlights. The kids have been having a great time making recordings in study hall.
