November 5th

Quick reminder that the Chorus Parents Association meets tonight at 7pm in the Chorus room. We got in the costume materials today, which was really exciting. We have been adding some choreography and percussive instruments in slowly but surely. It is getting really exciting! Blues in the Knight, the all-girls 3rd period class, performed at the faculty meeting yesterday afternoon and really wowed all the teachers. Mr. Colclough loved it, too.

I hope you're getting revved up for our Fall Concert, "Noche de Musica," on November 21st at 7:30pm! **A Ticket Order Form should have come home with your student on Monday.**

Concert attire: All black.
Guys: long sleeved, button-down black dress shirt (tucked in). Black dress pants. Black shoes, socks and belt. The chorus will provide a red flower to pin to their shirt pocket, and a red tie.
Girls: black dress or skirt/shirt combo. No straps smaller than a lasagna noodle, no cleavage. All skirts should be about knee-length. We will discuss shoes in class. The chorus will provide a red scarf/sash to tie around her waist, and a red flower for her hair.

Required rehearsals:
Monday, Nov 16th, 6-9pm
Tuesday, Nov 17th, 6-9pm
Thursday, Nov 19th, 6-9pm DRESS REHEARSAL, no exceptions (if missed, must write a 2-pg paper)
Saturday, Nov 21st, 7:30pm (call: 6pm for all chorus students) (if missed, must write a 3-pg paper)

All rehearsals and concerts are counted as performance grades and are a major part of the student's grade.

Many thanks to the parents on the costume committe, especially Jane. Everything looks great.

The Pancake Breakfast was a huge success, as was our Bake Sale. I am still anxiously waiting for our fundraising materials to arrive so we can begin the pecan fundraiser ASAP.

Looking for a keyboard for the chorus:
--relatively light and transportable, full size keys (not skinny), needs a sustain pedal
--If you see one for a good price (or have an extra one laying around the house), please let me know. We will need one for performances around the community in the future.

Things to talk about tonight at the CPA meeting:
-Ticket sales at concert
-Sound at concert
-Costumes for fall concert
-Shoes (girls, character shoes)
-Black dresses, tuxes for winter ASAP- measurements
-Wintertime performance opportunities (nursing homes, etc)
-Batteries for mics (9V)
-Anything else I forgot.

Please reply to with any questions. Thank you so much for all of your help! You are so crucial to our success and we appreciate all that you do for the chorus.
