MHS Choir Students and Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra Concerts on the Square performance: PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND MAKE NOTE OF THE NEW DATES & TIMES. The MHS Choirs have been invited to participate in the August 4, 2020 Concerts on the Square with the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Maestro Andrew Sewell. This is an incredible opportunity for our students (and choir students will already be learning this music as part of their Quarter 4 curriculum), but it is not a required MHS Choir event. This form is a *commitment* for intererested students to attend the required rehearsals (Sunday, August 2 & Monday, August 3) and the evening performance (Tuesday, August 4) for the 2020 Concerts on the Square; please only submit this form if you are fully prepared to commit to these dates. A parent/guardian needs to give permission and provide emergency contact information through this form in order for their student to participate in these rehearsals and the performance. The form should be completed and submitted by interested students and their parents/guardians together by April 15 in order to participate. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScJbN7HA-T5M-2taiuAenBbiZJ_WPeWyVq0QW9a3HAs0A7ygQ/viewform?usp=sf_link
