Our Spring Show preparation is underway for GET ON YOUR FEET – Pop through the decades – May 30th and 31st. Spring Show rehearsals and preparations are in full swing. Costume coordination continues. We visited classes on Thursday and Friday last week and still have some people missing items. Please review the required costume list and get all items required and be sure you have them by the first dress rehearsal. The Select girls who were not able to make it to class last Thursday will have their sweatshirts fitted at dress rehearsal right after the first number.
Required Dress Rehearsals – May 28 and 29 from 2:30 – 5:30 pm – Please remember that both dress rehearsals are required. Final positions will be assigned for the opening and closing numbers and students who are absent will have to perform them from the wings.
Spring Show Tickets - Tickets were distributed in class May 9 and 10. Dr. Lambert will mark the class roster indicating how many tickets each student was given and the numbers on their tickets. Students have 10 days to sell their tickets. Seniors are given 10 tickets for each night; all other students are given 5 per night, unless they request more. On May 24th ticket money and any unsold tickets are collected from the students during class time. This year tickets are $10 for adult and $5 for children, 8th grade and under.
Mandatory Meeting for Madrigals and Chamber Choirs for next year – At least one parent and the student are required to attend a meeting held after the Choir Awards picnic on June 11th in the Choir room. We will be ordering sweat shirts, discussing schedules, etc. for the coming year.
Spring Concert and Middle-School Community Service Hours - Parents, if you have any middle school students who need community service hours, we are looking for 4-6 students to distribute concert programs and monitor the auditorium doors during our Spring Concert on May 30th and 31st. They would need to arrive in the lobby of the LHS Auditorium by 7 PM. If you are interested, please contact Jennifer Follin at FollinFam@aol.com. Many thanks in advance!
Spring Show Hospitality - Thank you to all the Hospitality volunteers who have signed up to bake, shop, set-up and sell concession items for the Spring Show. This is the only show of the year at which we sell items to benefit the Choir Guild, so your contribution is much appreciated. If you have not received the SignUp Genius email and would like to assist with Hospitality, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We can always use more bakers!
Tuesday, June 11, 6-8 pm, LHS Cafeteria - All choral students and their parents are invited to enjoy a potluck dinner in the LHS cafeteria on Tuesday, June 11, from 6-8 pm. Our Choral Awards Ceremony will follow the dinner. Students will receive their varsity letters and awards, parent volunteers will be recognized, each choir will perform their favorite selection from the year, and we will say a final farewell to our seniors. It’s a fun way to wrap up the year! Hotdogs, hamburgers, veggie burgers, and drinks will be provided. The following food requests for the picnic are based on students’ last names:
If you are able to volunteer, please contact Cindy Taylor, picnic coordinator, at email@example.com. Hope to see everyone there!
Seniors! Tired of wearing that choir tuxedo or gown? Now’s your chance to donate them to the Choral Guild. The Choral Guild is accepting complete tuxedos (pants, jacket, shirt, bowtie, and cumberbund), gowns, and polo shirts (new this year) from departing choir members. Laundered gowns and polo shirts and dry-cleaned tuxedos (all on hangers) can be placed in the designated closet in the choir room. The Choir Guild is pleased to provide choral families an opportunity to purchase no-longer-used or outgrown uniforms at a discounted price in September, but we need items in good condition to offer. Please consider donating. Please contact Judy Bailey for more information (firstname.lastname@example.org).
