Choir Board and Choir Parents:
  •  Thank you for the hard work you put in this week in hosting both the Intermediate Festival and Concordia Concert.  It could not have happened without the incredible support and work of our parents! We got effusive positive feedback about the parents at both events.  A special Shout-Out to Jacque Jacobs for being in charge of food this week on Wednesday (Concordia) and Friday (GFU Festival) 
  •  MIB and Cantare both ROCKED-IT at the Intermediate Festival last week! SO proud of them both!
  • Congratulations to Choir of the Titans for achieving State Qualifying scores both at the OSU Festival and the GFU Festival.  Qualifying scores are scores of 81/100 or higher from two judges. Their scores were:
OSU: 92, 94, 94, (Sight Reading: 54/60)              GFU: 91, 94, 95 (No sight-reading at this festival)
Winter at West Position Needed:
Fundraising: The money raised helps to cover the overhead for Winter at West. This volunteer position can be done from home. It involves reaching out to local businesses to request donations, coordinating their donations and including their information in the program. It would be helpful if you could commit to do this position for 3 years but is not a requirement.
Volunteer Opportunities!!  We NEED you!!

Please take a look at the volunteer needs for the next few months at the choir signup link . The actual time required for most of these events is so small, and it's true that "many hands make light work." Volunteering at the concerts is especially easy. If you are attending anyway, please consider coming a little early to feed the kids, hand out programs or sell concessions. You are still able to fully enjoy the concerts. 

Also, please "like" the choir page on Facebook - West Salem High School Choir

Thank you for making time to help make our choir program a success!
