CSDA:
Welcome to Mrs. Catino's Music Class!

Happy Spring, everyone! We may have had a lot of snow to play around in recently but your students have been incredibly hard at work working with our new Ukulele program (ask them about that G7 chord and their Ukulele song!). 

Your chorus students have also been very hard at work preparing for a once in a lifetime opportunity in attending this year's American Young Voices concert at the Tsongas Arena which will feature (at the moment) about 3000 young singers, professional lighting, professional band, and a world renowned conductor and composer (check it out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8DMMeCRrbc and visit their website http://www.americanyoungvoices.com/ )

What AMAZING opportunities that we are so fortunate to be able to coordinate and attend!! At the moment, we are also preparing for our truly special annual Memorial Day Program (Friday May 25th, 9am) that we always feel so privileged and honored to host to show our appreciation for our special military personnel and service workers who have always gone above and beyond to keep us protected and safe and able to enjoy the freedoms they fought for. THANK YOU! (Honoree forms - sent home- due Friday May 18th, to have someone honored on our slide show!)

Finally, our annual CSDA Spring Chorus and Orchestra Concert will be held on Thursday, June 7th at 7pm in our CSDA Gymnasium! Get it on your calendar and be on the lookout for more information to come home soon!

Phew! I think that's it for now! Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns!!
