Hello Families,
 
I am so proud on their vocal development! We are working crazy hard for all of our upcoming events.  We are now in the memorization process for both performances.  
Keep encouraging your singer to practice at home!  It is truly making a huge differences!  Please double check to make sure they are writing their times in calendar portion.
 
Friendly reminders:
If you haven't already done so, please read the Chorister Handbook that is available above on this page.
 
If a child is sick from rehearsal, please make sure to have them fill out the homework portion on their practice log sheet and practice when they are feeling better.  Their homework is listed below.
 
Always bring their folder with music and a water bottle to rehearsal.
 
We have many things scheduled so please make sure you add the google calendar to your personal phone or computer by adding the plus sign on the bottom right corner. This calendar is the best way to be kept up to date with events for LCCC and look ahead to what is coming in the future.
 
Lastly, please check this webpage every weekend for updates and information! Below is an outline of what is coming for the rest of this month and next!
 
Thanks again and looking forward to another great rehearsal next week!
