6. Pre-Area Auditions – at ANDERSON – Tuesday, November 13
A volunteer spot has been sent out about this.
We need both parent and student to volunteer to help us with this event.
1 This includes parents to monitor 8 rooms while the students wait to go through two
rounds of auditions. This is a very easy job as the students are quite focused on wanting
to do well. WE CURRENTLY ONLY HAVE 2 ADULTS FOR THIS. PLEASE HELP!
2 We also need families to sign up to bring a soup for our judge’s meal. This may be dropped off in a crock pot at any point prior to 4:45pm.
3 Finally, we need students to volunteer as runners and door monitors for this event.
A signup sheet for students is in the choir room.
Go to http://signup.com/go/tBatNsY to help us out. Thank you in advance!
6. Winter Concert – Required rehearsal and concert – Students wear formal uniforms for this concert.
Please make sure that students have appropriate black dress shoes to wear with their uniform
for this and all other concerts throughout the year.

Please don’t spend a lot of money on shoes if your student is not going to wear them often.
