OTHER THINGS WE DID DURING OUR LAST REHEARSAL TOGETHER:

SONGS PRACTICED DURING OUR LAST REHEARSAL TOGETHER:
All three directors were at the American Choral Director’s Central Division Conference last week Thursday and Friday. Students were assigned to work on all of our March 9th concert music, with the aid of special practice CD’s Mr. Lawton and Mr. D’Oyly put together.
