Good Afternoon,

This week has been exceptionally busy! On Sunday, Chamber Choir sang for the Old 4th Ward tour of homes. It was chilly but we had a blast! Tuesday, Women’s Chamber was visited by UNCC to be observed. Thursday, Chamber Choir had its first combined rehearsal with the NWSA Chamber orchestra in preparation for Mass in G on December 20. Following the rehearsal, the seniors of Chamber choir visited WCCB and taped 4 Christmas Carols that will air during Rising the week prior to Christmas.

Next week, Women’s Chamber will perform for the Charlotte Government Center and Chamber Choir will perform at the Halton Theater prior to a special WTVI presentation. Don’t forget that Mens, Womens and Women’s Chamber all have their concert NEXT THURSDAY December 15 at Friendship Missonary Baptist. Details are below.

Western Tour: Emails have been sent out about balances for the Western Tour. There is another payment due on December 16 of $600 as well. Please check Charms or your emails from Ms. McCagg regarding all payment information up to this point. Students must have $1200 in their account prior to January 1.
December 15 Concert:  Women’s Ensemble, Women’s Chamber and Men’s Ensemble will be performing on December 15 at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, the same location as the fall concert. Students should arrive at 6:15pm dressed and ready to sing.
A few reminders regarding concerts:
  • There is to be NO FOOD in the sanctuary.
  • Once students enter, they are not to exit. Bathroom needs should met prior to the call time.
  • This concert, students will be dismissed by ensemble. Parents will meet them downstairs following the conclusion of the concert.
  • No Students are permitted to enter late or exit early. This will result in a 0 grade for the concert.
  • Students who are picked up late will no longer be permitted to perform in any after school events, causing them to do a written assignment for each concert.  Please come support your student so that this isn’t an issue.
