Welcome back to school, and happy 2012! The Madrigals have several upcoming events to be aware of, so make sure these events are on your calendars! First, the Sing-a-Thon: Saturday, January 21, 10am-5pm, a combination of a much-needed Saturday rehearsal with a sponsorship drive. We'll be working on a minimum of six pieces, plus technique, sight-singing, and much more. Second, our Scripps Health Performance, Monday, January 23, 11am-2pm, where we have been booked to sing three pieces at their Martin Luther King Jr. scholarship ceremony. This is the Monday of the week of finals, so use your best judgment when asking your teachers if you can attend. You will not be penalized for missing this event for academics. Next, our Area Choral Showcase will be Monday, February 13 at 7pm. The top choirs from Wangenheim Middle School, Marshall Middle School, and CPMA Middle School will be joining us in our campus theater for a fun, festive recruitment event with plenty of singing and performing. Free admission! Lastly, our Spring Festival with trip to Disney parks is Friday and Saturday, March 30-31. See letter for more details.
