Select Choir: Important, Required, Fast-Approaching Events

Hi everyone! Here’s the email that was recently sent to all Select Choir students. (More on the Phillies[!] in a separate post.)

Hello Cheltenham Select Choir!!!! I hope you all have had a wonderful summer. I look forward to a fantastic year of music-making with you all. We’ve got a great group of musicians and people!

Please examine these three items that need your attention immediately. These are items that were on the calendar distributed to you in June.

1. Select Choir Retreat at school Saturday, September 10, 2011, 11:00 am-5:00 pm.

  • This event is a requirement for the class. Be sure you have cleared your schedule. We will do voice testing and placement, assigning each singer a voice part, and we will rehearse for our performance at the Phillies game. All Select Choir members must be present.
  • Please pack your own lunch. And bring a pencil.

2. The Phillies Game: Sunday, September 18, 2011: Cheltenham Select Choir sings the national anthem!!!
All Select Choir members will depart school on the bus at 5:00 pm. Game time is 8:05 pm.
The bus will return to school at the conclusion of the game. (All ticket holders who are not members of Select Choir are responsible for their own transportation.)

As a performing organization, we have tickets reserved for us in Section 304–the cheap seats in right field. The tickets are $20 each; $18 goes to the Phillies, and $2 goes to our choir program.  Every performer must purchase a ticket. We also encourage every parent, family member, and Cheltenham High School supporter to join us in the Cheltenham section for a great evening of baseball and some great moments of CHS singing!

Again, each game ticket is $20. You may pay in cash or by check made out to The Phillies. Please turn in ticket money in an envelope marked with the number of tickets ordered, the amount enclosed, and the name of each individual purchasing a ticket. You may use the form below. The deadline for all ticket money to be turned in to Ms. Hutton is Friday, September 9, 2011, the first Friday of the school year.

3. Cheltenham Choirs T-Shirts
All Select Choir members are required to purchase a Cheltenham Choirs T-shirt. You’ll wear it to the Phillies game! The t-shirts are $6 each. Please pay in cash. Money is due Friday, September 16, in class.

To sum up:

  • By Friday, 9/9, turn in your Phillies ticket order form and money. Start talking to your friends and family now, encouraging them to join us at the game!
  • Saturday, 9/10, be at school by 11:00 am, with lunch and pencil.
  • By Friday, 9/16, turn in $6 cash for your new t-shirt.
  • Sunday, 9/18, be at school by 5:00 pm, ready to sing and cheer on the Phillies!
