Chamber Choir Auditions
Chamber Choir auditions will take place virtually this week and next week. There are two parts to the audition: Part 1 & Part 2, both of which all details and instructions are posted on Schoology on the Materials tab in the Chamber Choir Auditions folder. The 40 students auditioning for Chamber Choir will have until Sunday, May 1st to submit both of these parts of the Chamber Choir audition.
BELK Charity Sale Fundraiser
This week, we will begin our 3rd fundraiser for our European Concert Tour, as well as our last main fundraiser of the year to help raise funds for student’s Basic Support Fees & other remaining charges. Students may check out BELK Charity Sale Tickets to sell from myself, or appointed student leaders in each class. Each ticket sells for $5, and the individual buying the ticket gains entry to the BELK Sale (which runs from April 29th-May 1st), as well as getting $5 off of their first purchase! Students that wish to sign-up and sell tickets at the door of the sale may contact the event organizer, Jill Driscoll, at (256) 551-4200, ext. 313 or email@example.com. Students must turn in monies raised and/or any remaining tickets to the Grissom Choir Money Box (via envelope) by Friday, April 29th. All $5 from each ticket sale will go towards the student’s individual Charms Financial Account to help pay for any remaining fees and our European Concert Tour.
