Looking at this calendar, it is hard to believe we are in the final stretch. Really two more weeks and we are done. I can’t begin to express my gratitude to all of the parents and students for all you have done this year (And every year). We are SO lucky to have such a strong community that values the performing arts in their students’ lives. You have made music an integral part of the student experience and our students have truly outdone themselves each rehearsal and performance.

 

I can’t wait to share tomorrow evening with each of you. Thank you so much for being you
