Choir Seamstresses Needed

Dear Choir Families:

Wow! The year has flown by! Next Tuesday, April 15, is our annual Parade of Choirs Concert AT 7 pm in the LSW Field House. Your student should be coming home with call times tomorrow or Monday. This is a great opportunity for you to listen to all of our wonderful choirs at SLMS and LSW! Remember that you can log on to to locate the calendar (Password is LSWHSMusic) or visit to see all of the coming events in the LSW Music Dept.

We are in search of volunteers who would be willing to sew seams that have ripped on robes & possibly ties before they go to the cleaners in a few weeks It would also be great if that person/persons would be available next year, too. Previously, this has been left to Mrs. Pabst. However, this is a job for choir parents. If you are available, please email me atgaybeth.bingham and I will get you in touch with Mrs. Pabst. Thank you for your consideration, and enjoy the concert on Tuesday!

Lee’s Summit Contest Schedule! TOMORROW

Sorry this coming so late, but the contest organizer just sent it to us late Saturday night. There are MANY band members on this schedule. Students should arrive at LSHS in the PAC area no later than 15 minutes before performance time. Also, they SHOULD be dressed up for this event.

This is for ALL members of Percussion Class, MOST members of Concert Band, and SOME members of Symphonic Band.

You son/daughter has known about this for three months, and has hopefully been preparing outside of school as well. Each performer will earn a rating. All students who earn a "1" or "2" rating will be eligible for a music letter (given they have fulfilled the other requirements). It is also a part of their grade in band, as it is a requirement for all.

Hope to see you there!

Kauffman Center Performance INFO

Good Morning Concert Choir Families!

Attached you will find the information for tomorrow night’s performance at the Kauffman Center. Your student will be given your family’s two tickets today. PLEASE make sure you get these tickets from your students today. Unfortunately, I do not have replacement tickets, and only have an exact number for the students we have. I will impress upon the importance of keeping track of these tickets with the kids today as well.

This performance is a highlight of the year for concert choir. Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow night!
