Please read the full email, as all points are important for the final weeks of school.
This is to remind you of our Pre-UIL choir concert on Tuesday, April 16th, at 7pm. Students are required to arrive no later than 5pm in their uniforms** to begin warm-up and dress rehearsal. Doors open to the public at 6:45pm. We can’t wait to see you. Please remember that this concert is a showcase of our UIL material that we will present at UIL Concert & Sight-Reading during the week following Easter. We will be sending students home with a sheet containing all relevant UIL Contest information by the end of the week. Per UIL “no pass/no play” standards, this concert and subsequent contest are limited to students that are academically eligible. Your student will know their eligibility status.
**Uniforms for this concert and UIL contest are students’ black tuxedo/choir dress. For men, this includes black socks, black dress shoes, and deodorant (axe is not deodorant). For women, this includes black tights (no bare ankles), and hair out of their face.
Choir Banquet is right around the corner! Students should be bringing home a green choir banquet form. Please return the form to us by the concert if students wish to attend banquet. All choir students are allowed to attend Choir Banquet and we hope they will. We are looking forward to a fun night together! All dates and relevant information are included on the green sheet.
Please review our updated calendar for pop show rehearsals. These will be mandatory/graded for all UIL eligible students. As we get closer to the end of the year, it is important that your child’s choir fee has been paid in full. With the new system, fees appear as two separate payments, one per semester. Students will not receive their pop show shirt if their fee is outstanding. Please check to see if your fee is paid by logging in to the ORHS website’s financial portal called “Schoolcashonline.”
POP SHOW THIS YEAR WILL ONLY BE FRIDAY EVENING. In order to assure our students get to perform for a full audience, we will be canceling the Saturday evening performance of Pop Show.
