Chorus: We are getting back into the swing of things with our spring concert music. Be sure to invite all your friends and family for our final concert of the year on Thursday May 10 at 7:00pm in the Wheeler PAC. Also, remember if you rented your uniform those need to be returned CLEANED (dresses are machine washable, tuxedos are dry clean only). The last concert will be an exciting mix of pop tunes and music from the screen also featuring several solo and small group acts.

Musical Theatre: The show is fast approaching. We are now running everything and adding in technical component. Be sure to check the schedule so you know where you have to be and when!
