Dear Show Choir Parents,
We need your help with the Choral Classic. Please respond by signing up to volunteer by Sunday, February 9th.
As you know, we are hosting the 13th annual Choral Classic on Friday, March 13th and Saturday, March 14th at our very own WWS High School. The Choral Classic is an amazing event featuring competitive and exhibition performances by show choirs and soloists from around the country. Once again, this year will feature the middle school show choir competition on Friday night and the high school competition on Saturday. It's going to be an entertaining, educational, and exciting weekend for the performers and spectators!
Note: All show choir students(Classics, Esprit, and Band) are required to work after school on Friday March 13th through the end of the day and ALL DAY on Saturday March 14th. They will also perform on Friday and/or Saturday. More details closer to the event. Students SHOULD NOT reply to this email. This email is for PARENTS/ADULTS only. Your student's assignments will be communicated to them by Mr. Miller or Mr. Grace.
In order for the event to be a success, hundreds of volunteers are needed and we NEED YOU! The Choral Classic benefits the entire show choir program, The Classics, Esprit, and the Band in many ways. We are asking all Classics, Esprit and Band parents, MOMS AND DADS, to work AT LEAST 12 HOURS across the two days. If you can commit to working more than that, especially on Saturday, this would help a ton. (And we will be eternally grateful!)
Please respond ASAP, but by Sunday, February 9th at the latest. You will receive an email confirmation of your shift when you sign up, as well as a reminder 2 days prior to the event. Further volunteer instructions will be sent closer to the event as well.
Feel free to invite friends and relatives to volunteer as well! Please forward this email to them as they will need to complete the sign-up process as well.
Please remember to request a volunteer t-shirt during the signup process only if you DO NOT have one from a prior year.
Please email me directly at [email protected] if you have questions.
Thank you in advance for volunteering your time to help make the 2020 Choral Classic a huge success! We cannot do it without you!
