Music Department Upcoming Reminders

CASMA-

There will be a CASMA Women’s Chorus rehearsal in Johnsburg on April 22nd from 3-6pm. The bus will leave NWCS at 2:30 (beginning of activity period) and arrive back in NW at approximately 6:30. All women who do not have a game are REQUIRED to be in attendance otherwise forfeit the right to participate in the festival.

The CASMA festival will be held on Saturday April 26th at Indian Lake Central School. Everyone riding the bus will need to be at NWCS at 8AM. The concert will be at 3pm and IS NOT FREE. If you would like specific prices, please check the CASMA page from this blog. All other information will be there for you.

NYSSMA Majors Update-

Because of conflicting activities with our original date and time, the NYSSMA Majors performance has been moved to Thursday April 24th at 3pm. The senior chorus will leave the school during 10th period in order to arrive at our performance on time. Everyone who is enrolled in chorus is required to be there unless you are academically ineligible. If there are games after school the bus will transport those involved to the game sight. The bus will return to the district at approximately 5pm. If there any questions or concerns please contact Mr. Cerullo directly.

NYSSMA Majors Reminder- April 23rd

This is a reminder to all Senior chorus members and families. On April 23rd we will be participating in the NYSSMA Majors Competition at Bethlehem High School at 9am. Families are asked to have their child be at NWCS at 7:00am, before the busses arrive in order to arrive to our site on time and have ample warm up time. This is a very exciting opportunity for these students to participate in.

Concert Dress: Students are to arrive in their concert attire. For Ladies it will be black dress slacks and a white blouse (longer than 1/4 sleeves) and for gentlemen, black dress slacks, black dress shoes (no sneakers or boots), white collared shirt and a long neck tie.

 

We will be back in the district at approximately 11:40am or in between 7th and 8th period. Any questions please call or email me. Thank you all! Looking forward to this exciting trip!
