Saturday, November 8

Dear String Project Family,

I hope everyone has been having a good week so far! We are nearing the end of the semester; including this Saturday (for which I have attached the schedule), there are only three more days of class, and then the winter concert is upon us! As the winter concert is so close, please be sure that your kids are practicing their music, especially for those in the more advanced ensembles. The concert will only be as successful as the work that the kids put in, and we are all working hard towards putting on the best performance possible!

For the winter concert, we are holding a Cover Contest: String Project is accepting submissions of original drawings to be placed on the cover of the programs for the winter concert. All current String Project students are eligible to enter, and there is no limit to how many drawings a student can submit! Please adhere to the guidelines in the attached document; there will be copies of this document at the main table. The deadline for submissions will be Saturday, November 22nd.

A quick reminder about Honors Recital auditions (also due on Saturday, November 22nd) and juries- please see last week’s e-mail for more details. The jury board will be up in the lobby again this Saturday morning.

Lastly, this Saturday we have a home football game with a kickoff as early as 2:30pm. Parking and traffic will be more difficult than usual, so please leave home early to allow for a substantial delay in your commute. Remember that on home game days, you cannot park on campus even if you have an N/N+ parking permit.

That’s all for now. I hope everyone has a lovely rest of the week!
