Dear A Cappella Parents,


As our performance on Veteran’s Day approaches, we want to let you know some scheduling information.  Singers will need to bring their performance dress with them to take to the majestic.  It is highly recommended that ipads stay locked at CHS so they are not lost or stolen on this trip. Singers will be excused from 6th and 7th Periods.

Performance Schedule:

5th Period – Brief rehearsal at CHS

1:30 PM – Load Bus and head to the Majestic Theatre

2:15 PM – Drop off things and time to study/complete homework

3:00 PM – Line up and logistics rehearsal

Out of respect to our Veteran’s as well as to the people who invited us to be a part of this, we ask that all singers stay until the end of the event.  Parents may pick their singers up at the conclusion of the event if they have completed the Alternative Transportation Form.  Please let Mr. Brown know by email if you plan to pick up your singer –

Choir members will not have to pay to participate, parents and family members will need to purchase tickets to attend.  You can purchase your tickets online at

We are thrilled that you were selected to represent Coppell in one of the Region Choirs.  Here are some next steps you will want to be aware of:


  1. All Region Choir Rehearsal – November 10 (evening) – we will leave immediately after school by bus and will return around 9:30 that evening. This is required for ALL Region Choir Members.  Singers will need to bring a sack dinner with them that evening.  They will not have time to leave school to go get food since the buses will leave right after school.  We will provide bottled waters.

The concert will begin at 4:30 PM.  Admission is free.  As in years past, we will not be providing transportation back to Coppell.  Students and parents will need to arrange transportation home for their singer.   We will be providing their lunch on Saturday, November 15.
