Please avoid scheduling appointments during this critical time. Students who are absent during the coming weeks are likely to forfeit solo opportunities as well as their placement on stage. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
*In class for the next few weeks we will be working on choreography for the spring show. Students are reminded to wear acceptable clothing that is within the school dress code. In addition, students must wear shoes that are secure on the foot. Do not wear flip-flops, bulky slippers, or loose shoes that could fly off during choreography. Girls may wear ballet flats. Chamber and Madrigals need character shoes.

Solo Auditions must be completed this week!
Options include before or after school, or during D Lunch.
