November, Already?!?

Whew!  I can't believe it's already November.  With Halloween behind us, the music department now (unfortunately) does what all the retail stores do:  skip November and focus full-time on the Holidays!  The band and chorus have actually been in "holiday mode" since September, but we are shifting into full-time holiday mode now that the Kindergarteners, 1st graders, 2nd graders, and 3rd graders have begun work on our K-3 Holiday musical:  a musical by Teresa Jennings called "A Martian Christmas."  So far, we think it's out of this world!  Ha!  :)

The date for the 4-6 Spring Concert in May 2015 has been confirmed!  Please check out the concert tabs above for all the details.  We are really thrilled to be presenting a combined concert this year!  It's going to be so much fun!

Blizzard bags will be going home very soon, and the students have been briefed during class on what to do if the blizzard bag day falls on a day that they normally have musical activities:  music class, band, lessons, or chorus.  For your convenience, there is a link to my blizzard bag page above.

Chorus students:  the Chorus Practice Guide page has been fully-updated and is officially up and running with this year's holiday music!  Enjoy the chance to practice your chorus music at home!

As the days grow short and we all start to feel the hustle and bustle of the holiday season increasing the swiftness of our steps, I sure hope that everyone is still able to take some time to slow down, breathe, and bask in the glow of what really matters in life.  Happy Veteran's Day and a special thank you to all of those who have served and/or continue to serve our great country.  Happy Thanksgiving to all!
