Choir News for 3/5

THIS Saturday is the Solo and Ensemble Invitational

We are indeed excited to be hosting the first Solo and Ensemble Invitational for Private and Homeschool students.  This year will hopefully be the beginning of an annual event in which we can encourage the homeschool and private school community to build on and grow in the years to come. Below are all scheduled performance times. All Illuminati participants should arrive by 9:00 a.m. in FA 115 of the SNU Music Building to warm-up and should be finished by around 9:45 a.m. All Bella Voce participants should arrive by 9:20 a.m and be finished by around 11:15 a.m.  All performances will take place in the SNU Music Building Recital Hall located at 6729 NW 39th Expressway, Bethany, OK.  Please take the Southeast entrance of the building.  Once inside, take an immediate right and follow the hallway to the end where you will find the warm-up room and recital hall.  All parents are more than welcome to listen to the adjudication performances if they so desire.  All we ask is that you maintain a professional composure and note that clapping after a performance is not encouraged in this setting.  The attire for the day is your formal uniforms (black dresses/pants).  

If you have any last minute questions or need to contact me last minute, please call me on my cell at 405-833-6427.  See you on Saturday!

March Marks Several Deadlines and Events

Next week marks several deadlines including:
  • All Solo and Ensemble Invitational fees are due.  If you are unsure how much your child owes for this event, please ask Ann Hankins at the information booth.
  • The final Bella Voce tour payment
  • Illuminati Tour Payment ($65--you can read more about it here)
  • Bella Voce Student/Parent Meeting at 11:45 a.m. for all going on tour to Nashville
  • March dues
March is also Spring Break.  As such we will not be rehearsing on Tuesday, March 19th.  Please enjoy the break with your family!

OCHEC Convention

Believe it or not, it's time to start thinking about the Spring OCHEC convention.  If you haven't already purchased your family ticket, I highly encourage you to do so this week as the fee goes up on March 1st.  You can learn more about the convention on the OCHEC website.  It has been asked if we are going to sing at Convention again this year and as of yet I do not know the answer to that.  However, we WILL DEFINITELY need MANY parent volunteers to work the choir booth and ask if every family would have at least one parent volunteer during the course of the convention.  Even if you are not planning on attending the convention with your family, we can still arrange for a badge to be given to you during the time you sign up to serve in the COHC booth.  As such, beginning next week there will be a booth sign up sheet for you to let us know when you would like to volunteer.  I thank you in advance for your service in this way as it would not be possible without you!


9:00 a.m. Devin K.
10:30 a.m. Wendy A. and Angie D.

Thanks again for volunteering in this way! We now have only 5 blank spots left on the information table attendant sign-up sheet. Could one of them be for you?
