Hello wonderful students and families: Hello Prep Strings Families:
It came too fast; our final rehearsal is now packaged and mailed, and we are ready to share our music with everyone! We have a busy week ahead, and then..... auditions for our matriculating PSO'ers and readiness for another exciting year for those returning as the 'new leaders' of our community!
The same boring flyer was handed out again today about the fun tour we will have tomorrow. I was out there today just to get the details cleared and everything is set. I know the residents have the option of coming so I am not sure how many will be there but I know the ones who are there will really be so tickled to see these youngsters and to hear them play!
THURSDAY APRIL 25TH SPRING TOUR 2:30 - 3:00 LA VIDA LLENA on Lagrima de Oro North of Morris and Montgomery
Park at bottom of hill along street. Enter through two sliding glass doors and meet in lounge to the right of the main desk.
KEEP WALKWAYS CLEAR PLEASE. We need to ensure the passageways are clear for any residents.
We will have plenty of time to set up and won't need to rush. Their activity will end at 2:00 and we can enter the stage area then.
