Pancakes, Tour, and Attendance

Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser
If you are looking for a way to offset your tuition and for a way to feed your family breakfast, we’ve got a solution for you! A good ol’ Pancake Breakfast is coming in October.  Each $8 ticket sold will benefit a student’s tuition by $5.  Than means if you sell “8” $8 tickets, you will earn $40 towards your future tution!

Students (and families) will have an opportunity to perform during the serving time— much like an ‘Open Mic Night’.  Except that it’s breakfast! Here’s the details you might want to know now.  
Date: Saturday, October 24, 2015
Location: Baptist Temple, OKC: Fellowship Hall (corner of 30th & Villa)
Serving Time: 8:30am-10:30am (come and go)
Tickets: $8 = adults / $3 =children ages 3-11

Events like these don’t happen on their own. If you’d like to assist the Board members putting this together, they would LOVE your help!  Please contact Diana Chippeaux to find out how you can help make this event a success. 

ONE DAY TOUR DATE CHANGE: Bella Voce & Illuminati Students
Due to an unforeseen scheduling conflict at one of our tour sites, we were asked this week to CHANGE our tour date from November 21st to SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14th. We are sorry for any scheduling inconvenience this may cause your family.  

Bella Voce & Illuminati students will be performing at the Norman VA Hospital in the morning and at a retirement community in Ardmore in the afternoon.  Students will meet at Baptist Temple in OKC at 8am and will be returned to Baptist Temple by 5pm on the 14th.  All students and Choral Directors will be riding buses to our various locations. More specific timing details and logistics will be given in the weeks to come.

FALL BREAK…Not on the calendar 

The COHC does NOT take a break from rehearsals in October. If you are plannning on a mid-semester family vacation, please be aware of how many absensces your students will be accruing.  As our handbook states: “If a member misses 5 or more rehearsals in a semester for any reason, he/she may continue to attend rehearsals but will not be allowed to perform (including tour travel/participation) the remainder of the semester. If you cannot attend a rehearsal for any reason, please inform your director via email or by phone.”
