Titan Harmony Rehearsal/Concert/Party

Parents,

-Here comes the concert! Due to dress rehearsals for ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ tomorrow evening, rehearsal will only run from 6:00pm – 7:00pm to allow for students to attend the entire rehearsal.

-Call time for the concert next Monday is 4:30pm. It is early so we can walk through logistics on the stage and run some music in the auditorium before the concert. We cannot do it this Thursday because the stage is in use for the play. Titan Harmony will be singing on both concerts, 6:00 and 7:30.

-Finally, the Titan Harmony party will be held at Baylie Anderson’s house on Dec. 18th. I will hand out a sheet tomorrow night with information on the evening.

Let me know if you have any further questions, I’m excited to see you all next week!

Thank you,

Jacob Lowry

Titan Pride Update, Turkey edition 2014

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families. I hope this email finds you well and looking forward to a relaxing long weekend. Here are some bits of information and updates for the band world:

All State Band Auditions
There are several students involved in All-State Band auditions on Saturday, December 6th. If you have one of these students, you will need to transport your son/daughter to/from Columbia, MO. The auditions will take place at Columbia-Hickman High School. There are no scheduled times for these auditions. Mr. Thurmond and Mr. Harrel will be on-site with registration forms. You will need to find us upon arriving at the high school and get your audition number. At this point, students will go to their audition room and sign up for an audition spot (no times). More information (including maps and transportation release) will come home next week.

Winter Concert – December 8th
All bands will be performing at our Winter Concert. Please make sure all uniform parts are purchased and in order before the concert.

We hope all family and friends can attend this concert at such a wonderful time of year.

Are you going to Washington DC with us?

At this meeting you will be given lots of information that will take some immediate action on your part, so don’t miss it.

Una Voce St. Louis Itinerary

Dear Una Voce Families:

In case your student has not shared the itinerary for this weekend, I’ve attached it to this email. The choral department is taking care of all of the costs associated with this trip, except for food.

If you are planning on driving to St. Louis to hear the concert, the address for the concert venue is listed in the itinerary.

Also, obviously many of us have seen St. Louis quite a bit in the news these days. Please know we are not staying near Ferguson, MO. Clayton, where we are staying is a very upscale part of the city. If anything unfolds in the next two days we will adjust anything we feel necessary to keep LSW students absolutely safe.

The kids are REALLY excited and have been working hard!

Thank you!

Amy Krinke
