SENIOR AUDITIONS! It’s time to schedule those auditions.

This year is a special year for auditions.

I am inviting all current:

4th and 5th grade girls

3rd, 4th and 5th grade boys to Audition.

See the attachment for more details.

It is not required that a chorister take the audition or move up to Senior, they may stay in the Junior Level if it works best for their development and family schedule.

All 2nd grade choristers will move up to the Junior Schedule in September.

All 3rd grade girl choristers will move up to the Junior Schedule in September.

See the attachment for more details.

The annual mailing of the RECRUITING BROCHURE has been accomplished. It has been sent to all families at GCS with students in the first through fifth grades.

It’s never too late to join.

The pioneer trial of current 2nd grade novices has been a brilliant success, we will continue this!

Please pass your brochures on to families who might be interested both at GCS and those who have children who attend other schools.

There have been lots of questions about the remaining Sunday afternoon and special Spain Tour Rehearsals.

See the attached sheet for more information and ask lots of questions.
