Hello Singers and Families,
We are quickly approaching our trip and are very excited about it. By now, you should have paid for half of your trip at least. If you have not, we MUST have 1/2 of your payment by this Thursday (2/23), with the understanding that your account must be paid in full by 3/22. Failure to meet the payment schedule means removal from the trip and a forfeiting of money paid. If you intend to continue fundraising to pay for your trip, you are still encouraged to. However, we need the payments as outlined. Should you fundraise over the amount necessary for your trip and if you have made a cash contribution, you can be refunded the money that is over the amount of the trip. but again, please remember monies are due when stated.
The other item of critical importance is participation in all Thursday & Saturday rehearsals. Failure to attend Saturday & Thursday rehearsals will also result in you and your singer being removed from the trip. There are 8 more Thursday rehearsals and 5 more Saturday rehearsals. It is not fair to the singers who are diligently attending and learning their music to have others come who are not dedicated or not able to perform with confidence and musical excellence. This Saturday is our next NYC Ambassador rehearsal & we have tons of information and music preparation to do, so it is critical that all singers are present. In addition we need to get information to parents, so please DO NOT drop your kids and run. We are holding an important parent meeting at 9am as the kids begin rehearsal.
