7 Spring COHC events - save them now!

Each family should have received anywhere from 1-3 emails from me on Thursday.  If you did not receive any emails, you need to contact me because your email listed on the registration page is incorrect. 

March 5th: OKC Blue Basketball Game: National Anthem/ Cox Convention Center
Bella Voce families received detailed information about purchasing the $8 tickets and the timeline for the performance.  If your family did not receive this email, contact me as soon as possible.  

All COHC families are welcome to attend this fun sporting event.  The OKC BLUE is the Developmental team of the OKC Thunder.  You can purchase tickets by mailing a check in the amount of the tickets desired ($8 per ticket) to Central Oklahoma Homeschool Choirs, 2000 West Danforth Road, Suite 130-204, Edmond, OK   73003. 

April 2nd: Combined Rehearsals & Ensemble Concert/ Baptist Temple - OKC
Music Experience, Principio, Illuminati, and Bella Voce choir families should have received a detailed email about what we are doing and the times students need attend.  If your family did not receive this email, contact me as soon as possible.  

All family, friends, and students are invited to attend the Ensemble Concert at 1pm in the Worship Center.  Each Illuminati and Bella Voce student is performing in at least one ensemble.  There is even 1 or 2 Principio ensembles this year! A panel of music judges who have no affiliation with the COHC will score the ensembles. At the conclusion of the concert the top 2 scoring ensembles will be “awarded” with the honor of performing at the Spring Concert. 

April 16th: Heartland Music Festival / Festival location (TBA*) / Frontier City
Illuminati & Bella Voce families received information about this annual festival being held on Saturday, April 16th.  Students can either pay $22 for attending the Festival Only OR pay $52 for the Festival + Frontier City.  The students will perform for a panel of judges in the morning and then enjoy the afternoon at Frontier City. Transportation from the original meeting point (TBA*)to the Festival, Frontier City and the return to original meeting point is provided by Putnam City School Buses.  

*Festival locations are not assigned to choirs until late March or early April.  We do know that It will be at a metro University or High School.  Once we have been notified, we will pass the information along to the choirs. 

Do you have these dates saved yet?
April 19-24th -  OKC Arts Festival (if selected) all choirs will perform sometime that week in downtown OKC.  We should know by March 1st if we have been selected and when/where we will be performing!  
April 26th-April 27th - Spring Pre-Sing!  Invite your friends who are interested in joining the COHC in the Fall to your rehearsal.   This is a perfect time to drum up interest for next year!
