First Rehearsal Notes and Updates

We are off and running.  Thanks to all who attended both our parent meeting and voice hearing day on Monday and Tuesday.  It was so nice to have the opportunity (although short) to begin to get to know each one of you.  This Tuesday we will begin our first rehearsals.  Please enter through the North doors of the church atop the handicap ramp.  Your rehearsals will take place in the same rooms you had your voice hearings in.

Please bring a pencil and a bottle of water (if you want one).  Also, feel free to bring a friend.  Registration will remain open through September 4th.  If you need more choir flyers, feel free to download and print extras as needed.  They can be found on the form section of our website.  In a choir there is strength in numbers so bring it on!

In addition to the choir flyer, I've also update the form section of our website to include the Solo and Ensemble Invitational Information and Entry Form.  Start spreading the word about this event.  This year's success will hold major weight in the future of such an event in Oklahoma.  Let's make it a fabulous one!

Just a reminder.  Here's our weekly rehearsal schedule:

Music Experience -> K – 2nd Grade -> 9:00 - 10:00          
Principio  ->  3rd – 5th Grade  ->  9:00 - 10:00
Illuminati  ->  6th – 8th Grade  ->  10:30 - 12:00
Bella Voce  ->  9th –12th Grade  ->  10:15 - 12:00

This week's information table attendants*:
9 a.m.   Jenni S.
10:30 a.m.  Karen H.

*Thanks for those of you who have signed up to help as information table attendants. If you have not had an opportunity to sign up for a day, the sign up sheet will remain at the information table each week. We still have plenty of spots to fill so I hope you will take time to add your name to the list. Remember parents, this is for the safety of your children. Information table attendants sit at the information table, ensure quiet use of the student/parent lounge, prompt attendance to rehearsals, and monitor bathroom use. Attendants are free to bring something to do such as a book to read while monitoring.

See you Tuesday!
