Concert Prep Update!

Hello All,

We are not going to have a special rehearsal during 5th period tomorrow! Students need to be in their core classes. Sorry! I have a plan, though. We will be fine.

TA’s: I will need your help making sure Cantaré dresses are labeled for everyone in the choir. Some are missing labels.

Program is done! Need leadership to help fold and insert it!

Mallory, Adrian and Kristen – Your solos are imbedded into the concert program. Mallory, you sing after CANTUS; Adrian, you sing after CAMERATA; Kristen, you sing after CHORALATION.


Grotto Performance Cancelled

I am so very sorry to announce that due to inclement weather, our Grotto performance is cancelled. With school being closed, all evening activities are also cancelled. With the prediction of freezing rain for the afternoon, it is simply too unsafe to travel. Additionally, the East side gets hit far worse than the West side, so the Grotto will likely close anyway.

Wishing it wasn’t so,

Mr. H

Choir adds second performance!

Due to overflow crowds at last year’s Holiday Concert and the addition of 40 new members to the choir program, we are pleased to announce that we are adding a second performance to the Holiday Schedule to accommodate the increased audience demand.

Monday, December 12 at 7 pm will be our first Holiday Concert at Deb Fennell Auditorium

Thursday, December 15th at 7 pm will be our second Holiday Concert at Deb Fennell Auditorium

Both nights will feature all choirs. Soloist and specialty acts will be different for each night.

Looking forward to a great series of performances.
