See you at Pastinis on Monday 2/27 or Tuesday 2/28! Make sure your receipt gets stamped with PASTATHON for choir!
Also, please mark your calendars for April 6 from 4-8 at Panera for another dine-out. That one requires a flier (or show it on your phone)! Thanks, everyone!
Some of you study voice privately and are excited about the opportunity to perform for certified adjudicators. There is a wonderful event on March 4th at Benton Hall at OSU called Solo and Ensemble. See the attached for registration information. Everything will be due Thursday in order to be scheduled.
Choralpalooza is our wonderful 5th grade through 12th grade district wide choral event! This year we are bringing in a clinician to work with the high school groups, and we are looking forward to our new layout! The event is held at CVHS this year, and the schedule is detailed below.
Where: CVHS auditorium
When: February 11th
Times: Women check in 11:30 am, released 12:30 pm
Men check in 12:15 pm, released 1:15 pm
(free to stay at CV, do homework, bring snacks, watch the MS and elementary)
All groups check in at 3:00 pm for a 3:10 group rehearsal. Stay for duration of 5:00 concert (hour at most)
Concert: 5 pm and free to all. Space is limited, however.
Attire: Formal tops (black and the Elektra scarves for all women, black dress shirt and ties for men) and jeans on the bottom. I will email you if this changes to FULL formal attire.
Transport: Please have your student there at the check in times and pick them up following the concert in the CV band room. 6 pm is a good guess. There will be teachers there all day supervising if your student wants to bring other work, spend time with friends, or observe the clinician.
Although Choralpalooza is not taking place on a school day this year, I would still like a permission slip signed and returned so I can have emergency contact info on hand. Please see attached for the permission slip.
Thank you! Let me know if you have any questions.

Due to a theater use conflict, the final concert and senior solos (Spartapalooza) is now JUNE 1, one day earlier. The dress rehearsal is also one day earlier - May 31. The change has been made on the google calendar, but the first version syllabus will have the incorrect final concert date.
