Student Volunteer Musicians Needed

Dear Athens Drive Band member,

Here we come “a caroling”!

The purpose of this letter is to invite you to consider caroling at the one or more of the following events. A sign-up sheet will be posted on the band “white board.” I realize that the holidays are a busy time for everyone; however, I believe giving the GIFT OF MUSIC is just as special a gift as something materialistic. Plus, performing at these events will count as NHS and TRI-M hours. 🙂 The events marked with an asterisk are particularly important.

For your convenience, I will be dropping off music stands and Green Caroling Books at each of the Dewey’s Locations so all you will need to do is bring your instrument! Be sure to dress warmly as you may be playing outside (weather permitting).

And just to let you know, I am playing classical guitar at the Dewey’s Stores on Saturday mornings from 10-noon. We are all in this together. 🙂
