Festival Set YouTube Playlist

Here is a YouTube playlist of all our music (in order) for festival. Please use this as a guide to learning all of our music. The video for "How Can I Keep" is not complete and sung by a women's choir - but they are really good. Please follow the link in the description to to find a great recording of the piece conducted by the woman who arranged it. Good luck listening and have fun!

Sole & Ensemble Schedule Revised

Here is the new schedule for Solo & Ensemble on Sunday, March 9th at Grant. Many times have been changed from the original posting so please look closely at the time you are scheduled. If for any reason you no longer can or wish to perform please let me know as soon as possible so that I can open your slot up for someone who many need to switch times. Thank you for your understanding with all the schedule changes - that snow storm really threw us all for a loop. Good luck to everyone at the contest!
