    The Heritage orchestra will be performing in the first 15 minutes of the Christmas sing-along assembly on December 20 at 9:15 am.
    We will have a rehearsal for the assembly the morning of the 20th at 8:00 am on the stage.
    So, this coming week we have classes in the morning as normal, the concert on Thursday, as well as a class party at 8:00 am on Friday. Then we will have no more classes until the rehearsal on the 20th and the assembly.
    Classes resume in our normal schedule after Christmas break when school starts again on January 2.

    Thank you for helping your kids practice! We are getting down to crunch time for the concert-so it’s even more important than ever!
    Here are the details:
    Our concert is THURSDAY DECEMBER 5 at 7:00 pm.
    Second Years need to arrive at 5:15 for their rehearsal.
    First Years need to arrive at 5:45 for their rehearsal.
    First year violins and violas need to bring their music stand.
    Students should wear black or dark pants or a long skirt, a white shirt, and can wear Christmas accessories.
    We will have a class party on the morning of Friday December 6th at 8:00 am in the music room for both classes. If your child has any food allergies please let me know so I can have a treat for them! ❤️ Students do not need to bring their instrument to the class party. The party will be our last regular class for December! (Stay tuned for a possible rehearsal surrounding the school assembly-more details coming). Orchestra will resume our normal class schedule when school starts again in January.
    With only 3 or 4 classes left before the concert it is even more important than ever to encourage practicing. Especially over the Thanksgiving Holiday. If your child is struggling or needing extra help PLEASE let me know! I’m here to help, and want these kids to succeed! Playing a string instrument is hard and takes a lot of work.
    The Heritage Orchestra will be performing at the beginning of the Christmas Assembly on Friday December 20. We will have a rehearsal that morning at 8:00 am. Please make sure your kids are there at 7:50 to prepare.
