Tuxes and Gowns for all new Symphonic Choir members (and any returning members who purchased our new style) have arrived. No student will receive his/her apparel until payment has been made. Dresses cost $65 this year and tuxedos are $75. Checks may be made out to Perry Vocal Music. Please remember that all tuxedo pants and nearly all dresses will need alternations. You are advised to find a seamstress or tailor ASAP so your items will be completed by our first concert. If you don’t know anyone who sews, you may want to check out Alterations Express located in the Belden Village area, or Dutch Girl Cleaners on Whipple Ave.
The PHS Symphonic Choir has been asked to perform the National Anthem with the McKinley Choir at the October 17 Perry/McKinley football game at Fawcett Stadium. Students will rehearse together just one time that evening before the game; the time will be announced as details are confirmed. All students are responsible for finding a ride to the game–permission slips will be sent home so parents can indicate whether students will be allowed to drive themselves, whether parents will drop them off and pick them up, or if a student can ride with another student. All Symphonic Choir members will receive complimentary admission to the game and are invited to stay for the “white out” in our Jungle student section. Go Perry!
Once again this year, our Boosters have scheduled a weekend of fundraising through Ruby Tuesday’s Community Give Back program. From Friday, September 26 through Sunday, September 28, Ruby Tuesday will donate 20% of your purchase to our Booster club. Last year’s fall program raised over $700 in just one weekend–and all you have to do is eat lunch or dinner! Flyers will go home with all students and one is found here on the website. Simply click on the link below, download and present one to your server and you automatically help the choirs. Don’t forget–that weekend is Homecoming, too! Reserve your table for you and your date now!
Ruby Tuesday fall
On Monday, September 8, the choirs began a fundraiser to help defray the costs of our performance apparel and next year’s Disney trip. Money for magazines and cookie dough is due next Tuesday–that’s September 16! Please gather your pledged sales this weekend and be sure to have all orders ready to return on time!
Thanks to you all for a great beginning! Mr. Hayden and I are looking forward to another fantastic year and we’re looking forward to all we can accomplish. Be sure to check back here regularly for assignments, dates and important information. Welcome back!
