Sat February 3rd –Rt. 72 Solo/Ensemble Contest at Oregon HS

We will be hosting the Jr high solo and ensemble contest in February. We will need A LOT OF HELP from students and especially parents: door monitors, concessions, ticket takers/sellers, etc! If you are willing to help, please let Mr. Beske and me know! Additionally students signed up for solos/ensembles before Thanksgiving and have been meeting with me since then.  Please ensure they are practicing! Music needs to be memorized for this event! I have also made practice recordings so they may practice with my help anywhere—those recordings may be found on the choir website:

Sat. March 17th—IGSMA Organizational Contest at West Middle School in Rockford, IL

We had an overwhelming number of “yes’s” from both our survey and in-class vote. Please mark your calendars for Sat March 17 as we will need everyone from our choir there! If your student cannot be there that day, please let me know ASAP so we may plan accordingly! We are also very fortunate that our contest site is so close.  I will be requesting an afternoon time (likely around 1:00p) based on the information from the survey. As soon as we get information, I will let you know the exact schedule. 

Girls’ BB sign-up begins today! Try-outs will be on Wednesday and Thursday, January 3rd and 4th. Seventh grade will try-out at DLR from 3:00-5:10 and 8th grade will be in Mr. Gipper’s gym at OES from 3:15-5:20 p.m. You need to have a current physical on file at the DLR office, a concussion form and parental/guardian consent form into the office BEFORE you try-out. If you have any questions, please see Mr. Cann, Mrs. Nelson or Mrs. Stinson in the office.

In preparation for our upcoming girls’ BB season, there will be four open gyms at DLR in December.
