Choir News--Choral Fest Scholarship Available and Solo and Ensemble Performance Schedule

Choral Fest Scholarship Available

One of our students has had to withdraw from the Choral Fest and would like to donate their registration fee to another deserving student.  That said, the first non-registered person to reply to this email and request the scholarship will get it.  Keep in mind, that this person will need to practice the music 20 times on their own before the performance on March 7th.  While there is still time to get one practice in a day it will be tight so only serious inquiries will be accepted.  Thanks!
