Choir Update: Willamette Masters Chorale

posted Dec 16, 2016, 1:49 PM by Kalapuya Elementary

Choir families,

Thank you for your patience while the decisions about our upcoming concerts have been made.   Due to the persistent inclement weather and hazardous driving conditions, all district sponsored events have been cancelled for the weekend and no busing transportation is being provided for any events this weekend.  

The Willamette Master Chorale is going forward with the concert this weekend as everyone has worked so hard and the holiday music would not be the same if it was rescheduled in January.   Kalapuya will not be participating in the dress rehearsal tonight, but the Saturday and Sunday concerts will still be held as originally planned. 

Participation in the choir concert with Willamette Master Chorus is not a requirement for students and is not considered a district sponsored event.  Parents may transport their students through private arrangement.  Please be cautious and careful if you decide to have your student participate in this event given the driving conditions.  

For those families who can participate, please deliver your student to Rogers Hall in the Hudson Music Building at Willamette University in concert dress at 6:15.  Concert dress is their black music polo and black pants or skirts. This will give us time to warm up and run our pieces before the 7:30 concert.  Sunday the call time will be 2:15 with a 3:00 start time.  

If you have not picked up your tickets, we will have them available at the main entrance to the Hudson Music Building.
