Panther Choir Newsletter 4/16

We want to say a big thank you to all our singers that participated in the UIL process this week. We appreciate you all putting in the time and effort into learning the music, attending rehearsals and clinics, and making beautiful music together. We are very proud of you all. Be sure to be looking at the major events calendar for upcoming events like the jazz show, spring concert, and our choir banquet.

- Senior Scholarships -

Our application for 2021 senior scholarships has been open now for a week. We urge any seniors wanting to apply to do so here. The deadline for applications is Friday, April 30. You will find all criteria and information for applying on the form linked above.

- Sing! 2021 Jazz Show -

Our jazz show this year will also be a little different than past years. Our show will be held at the school on Friday, April 23 and Saturday, April 24 both at 7 pm. The event is ticketed at $5 a ticket for general admission and $40 for one of our new, exclusive stage-tables. This is a new concept that gives you the opportunity to sit right on the stage with our singers as they serenade you all night. These tables will seat two guests and will be distanced (as will general admission) following CDC and GCISD performance guidelines. Masks will be required for all attendees. Above is this year's Jazz Show poster and on it you can find a QR code that will take you directly to our ticketing system. Tickets will start being sold on Monday, April 12 at 4 pm. Please make sure to reserve your seats for the show sooner rather than later. The shows will be identical both nights. We hope that you can attend! In case the QR code does not work for you, here is the link to purchase tickets once they go on sale:
