Choir News for 3/12

Regular Rehearsals This Week

No Rehearsals during Spring Break.

Mark your calendars now.  There will be no rehearsal next Tuesday, March 19th due to Spring break.  Please enjoy the time with your family.

Illuminati Tour Fees Due

If your child is in Illuminati and you did not have a chance to pay your tour fee last week, we will gladly welcome it this week.  This is one tour we want everyone to go on!  It's $65 for a one day tour to the Heartland Music Festival which includes bus transportation, contest, lunch, and an afternoon at Frontier City.    The question has been asked but yes, students remain with an adult sponsor at all times while on tour.  Speaking of which, would you like to go as a sponsor?  If so, please let me know ASAP.  The cost for the sponsor is the same as the students.  

Illuminati Rehearsal Tracks

Illuminati students and parents--be on the lookout.  Due to the fact that we have so few weeks left in the school year to learn a large amount of music, I am creating voice part tracks for students to rehearse with at home over Spring Break and beyond.  Be looking for these tracks sent via email this week.  You have my permission to download these tracks and put them on a CD or mp3 player for your child to practice with between rehearsals.  My recommendation is 5 times per week.  If they can do this and become familiar with their voice part we will be well on our way for contest NEXT MONTH!

OCHEC Convention Volunteers NEEDED

Sign up is now Online!

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.  Seeing that many of you really like beingIt 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.  You can sign up online here.  I thank you in advance for your service in this way as it would not be possible without you!
