Panther Choir Update 4/10/16

Dear Parents and Students:

We have arrived at our UIL Concert & Sight-Reading Contest week. We’ve got a busy few days ahead of us that I know will be full of incredible music making from our students. Details for this week were sent in an email from Mrs. Massey on Friday. She also made a request for a few parent volunteers that we need to help get 6 choirs to contest in two days. If you are able to assist, please respond to Mrs. Massey! Information sent in that email and given in written form to the students is referenced again below.

Area Scheduling

I continue to get questions and concerns about Arena Scheduling. In only the second year of using this system we continue to work out the kinks. We realize that many students have not been able to sign up for the proper choir period (and some even sign up at all). I assure you, we will work with the counselors to solve these issues. Our plan is to complete auditions via an online submission and an in class sight-reading assessment. We should have everything completed by Friday, April 29. At that point we will work out all of the issues that we need to address!

Jazz Show

Our Jazz Choirs will present our annual spring show SING! on Friday, April 29. I hope that many of you will plan to attend. Advance tickets will be available on our website and in the choir office by the end of this week. Please invite those in the community that would enjoy our show!
