As for our State Festival Performance, please be sure to check your calendars carefully and make the necessary adjustments.  State Festival is our single most significant performance of the year (in terms of formal accreditation) as ratings are given and distributed throughout the state.   Also, parents are welcome to attend our performance at Willow Springs H.S.!

Your continued support means a great deal to the students—and me!  We look forward to sharing some great music with you during the upcoming weeks!

 

Stay healthy!
