Caiman Chorus is working on arrangements of the Star Spangled Banner, America, America the Beautiful and Sir Eglamore (another Kate Rusby song). I need to get t-shirt sizes from those who are not in GCC as well. I will be sending home a letter and a request for a few bucks for the shirts. I will post a link to Sir Eglamore on the right of this post.
GCC is working on premiering a couple more new works; Still Alive which I mentioned earlier and a brand new work by Eric Carlson named One Life Can Make a Diffence (It’s Up To You). These will be premiered at the Case Area Choir Festival in March. We will also be working on El Tiburon by Alyssa Seversen. I will pass out uniforms (White Shirt and Black Pants) at rehearsals next week Tuesday and Wednesday. If the kids bring them home and they don’t fit, send them back with them on Thursday and we will see if we can trade with others that don’t fit. Remember that sleeves are going to be too long on most shirts and the pants are unhemmed. The “fit ” I mean is around the middle for the pants and can they button the shirts.
GCC Concert Date Problem. The Feb 18 concert is on the same night half of the 4th and 5th graders have their practice for the read-athon. I have to check with Mrs Dalquist to see if we can get around this somehow. Keep checking the blog for updates. i will send a letter home when it is set in stone, but time is slipping by.
Talent Show Auditions will be on Feb. 23, 24 and 25 after school. Get working on your acts they need to be 90% ready for that audition.
