Final Reminder for Performance Evaluation Festival next week.

Reminder: Mabry Singers Chorus will be performing at Festival March 8th.

I need all field trip payments and permission forms turned in to me by this Friday, March 4th. Without this permission form you may not attend the Festival.

Remember to bring your money for lunch with you that day or your bag lunch. We will stop at Wendy's and Taco Bell on Shallowford Road to eat on the way back to Mabry.

Thank you to the parents that have offered to chaperone this trip. Chaperones will need to be at the school by 9:00 a.m. and meet me in the chorus room. All students going on this trip will meet in the theater after checking in with their homeroom teacher. Students, please arrive at school no later than 9:00 so that we can leave promptly at 9:15 a.m. You need to be dressed in your concert attire. We will not have time to change before departing.

Performance Evaluation

Mabry Singers are getting ready for their Performance Evaluation in March. As soon as I know the exact date of the performance I will post it on my BLOG. It will be either Tuesday, March 8th or Thursday, March 10th.

You will need to return permission forms ASAP being that I only see you once a week. You may give them to me anytime during the week. I will get them to you by next week as soon as I know our exact time and day.

If you have not been at rehearsals and are planning on singing with us you must be at all remaining rehearsals!!! The songs are in Hebrew and Latin so it will take some work for you to learn them. We are also learning how to sight-read as this is a part of the evaluation process. Come join the fun and make some beautiful music together.
