Enjoy the ride!

The next week is wall to wall rehearsals and performances.  Please communicate early and often with your teachers about what you are doing.  We have much to accomplish as we charge towards our conference performances this week.

Please come out to these performances and support our kids.  As you know, they have been hard at work since returning from winter break.  The Kentucky Music Educators Association conference is the highest performance honor a group can earn in our state.  Please take the afternoon and join your children for these performances.
