  1. Come to every dance rehearsal in March and stay for the entire rehearsal.

  2. Learn their part for music (FOR ALL PIECES IN THE GOOGLE DRIVE) by the first music rehearsal (Zero Period on 3/30) on words and solfege – memorization is NOT required.

  3. Pay your Vivace Fee of $100 in FULL by 3/16 as stated in the Vivace Audition Packet.

 

We will have lunch sectionals on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays during the first half of each lunch on the Vivace Music.  Come get help!

 

Please let Mr. Brown know by email as soon as possible if you have a conflict (NOT MADRIGALS) that would keep you from being able to rehearse music with the group during zero period.

Respira Performance TOMORROW NIGHT

Dear Respire Parents,

Tomorrow night they will perform at 6:45 PM in the CHS Commons.  I have asked for permission for them to perform their entire show since you were not able to see them on Saturday.  They will need to arrive at 6:00 in the Large Choir Room wearing their Gold Dress (they do not need to go all out with their hair and makeup, but can have some).  Anyone participating in the Vivace Auditions should be done by 5:15.  Parents and family members are welcomed to attend for free tomorrow.
Thanks for your flexibility with all the changes due to the weather.  We look forward to seeing you tomorrow night. Let me know if you have any questions.
