A few reminders as we prepare for our winter concert next Tuesday, December 7th. First, all students are required to stay after school on concert day to attend rehearsal. The rehearsal schedule (on stage) is as follows:

3:00-3:45 Concert Orchestra (Freshman & Sophomore classes)
3:45-4:30 Symphonic Orchestra (Junior & Senior classes)
4:30-5:15 Philharmonic Orchestra
5:30-6:15 Dinner – Russian themed dinner for participating Food Fund students
6:30-7:00 Hospitality and piano performances/Russian readings in Langley Hall
7:00-8:30 Concert

Second, all students need to wear formalwear (tuxedo or Langley black/green dress) with black closed-toe dress shoes for the concert. All students and audience members must also wear masks.

Finally, at our concert we will celebrate Ruth Donahue, Spring Hill Elementary’s Orchestra Director from 1988-2021, and her recent retirement.

Our fundraiser donut sales will begin at 3:25 pm (boxes of 1 dozen Krispy Kreme donuts for $10), and coffee can be picked up prior to the concert. Special thanks to all the families who have already signed up to donate food to our Hospitality tables — please consider signing up to bring something if you haven’t already at this SignUpGenius.
