This Week in Choir: Week 22
Good Evening Grissom Choir,
It was a pleasure to welcome all students back into the classroom full time last week, and I am thankful to be able to make music as full choirs once more. Those that are HVA, please continue to tune in LIVE to your classes Zoom meeting, of which the link can be found on Schoology.

New students, we began sizing you for your Concert Uniforms last week, and we will finish up this week. It is important that you are in class during your class time so that you do not miss you fitting. HVA students in Men’s & Women’s Choir, please make arrangements to come to your choir class, Men’s - Thursday/A2, Women’s - Friday/B2, for your fitting. You may enter through the attendance office in the back, and tell them that you are here for choir. If there are any students on quarantine during these times, please reach out in order to arrange alternate times.
