These concerts help with our recruiting and are a great opportunity for the choir to be heard in our community. School excuses were available at rehearsal or the morning of the concerts from Mr. Wigal.
PLEASE NOTE: Outstanding balances MUST be paid NO LATER than Monday, May 5. Outstanding balances will preclude a girl from participating in the remaining concerts this semester. This includes the spring concert on May 9.
UPCOMING AUDITIONS: The choir is currently conducting auditions for the upcoming year. Everyone must audition each year. Don't wait until the last minute! Sign up for your audition today. You may sign up at the tables in the Fellowship Hall during rehearsal, or by calling the choir office at 266-9422.
VOLUNTEER HELP IS NEEDED: The office is in need of volunteers to make phone calls to schedule auditions. If you have an hour or so you could spend making phone calls in the office at the Maclellan Building, Suite 612 (next door to the Tivoli Theatre), please let us know.
Help is also needed during rehearsals. We need parents who can act as audition chaperones. Volunteer to spend an hour or two when you bring your daughter for her audition.
If you can help with either of these requests, please let the office know. Thank you!
TICKET SALES: Because the spring concert will be held at First Baptist Church, no advance ticket sales will be conducted. All seats will be sold at the door the night of the concert for $10 each with general admission seating.
Any parent willing to assist with selling tickets, handing out programs, or chaperoning the choirs during dress rehearsal and performance should contact the choir office. (266-9422).
THE TENNESSEE MUSIC EDUCATION ASSOCIATION SPECIAL AWARDS RECIPIENT FOR 2003: The late Mary Ann Lowe (former director of the Cantilena Choir) was the first recipient of the Hall of Fame Award for the Tennessee Music Educators Association, presented in Nashville recently.
