This is coming to you later than I’d like, but it has been a year of many changes for me and they’ve kept me busier than usual.
I am excited to welcome you to join me once again for our annual Holiday Pops Concert! This is easily one of my favorite events, and and I love working with your children.
I have extended an invite to some of my older singers this year, and we will have high school singers joining us this year. If you know of strong singers, especially if they sing harmony and are between 9th - 12th grade, I’d love to invite them, just let me know. A few of our new singers have been added to this email list as well; welcome!
The routine will be the same as last year; you may miss no more than 2 rehearsals that are approved in advance; and you cannot miss the run-thru, or the last Saturday as Maestro Neale attends this rehearsal to conduct the children before we join the full Symphony. There is a participation fee of $75 per family; and each family will receive 2 comps, and a t-shirt with your singer’s name on the back.
Please let me know at your earliest convenience if you can join me this year, and if you have any friends that would like to join us. Enrollment continues to be limited (no more than 50 singers can participate), so I will need to reserve your space in this choir asap as I am continuing to invite new singers as well, and I wouldn’t want to fill the choir before I know whether or not each of you can join me!
