Abravanel Hall -- Day After Tomorrow!


This is what I wrote last week, but never sent [sheepish grin]:

Abravanel Hall permission slips: all who return them by Saturday, Feb 25th, will receive a slice of fresh homemade bread! That's this coming Saturday. [Bravo to everyone who remembered to bring those permission slips even without the reminder email! -- the bread was good, eh?]

Details for Monday:

Concert Dress is LYS Formal Concert Attire. Click here if you can't remember. Black socks & bow ties, K? ;)

The bus will be at the scheduled locations at the scheduled times. Garrett, Kjersti, Krystal, Liana, and Chauncey all need to bring their permission slips to get on the bus. There will be two chaperones getting on at ACYI, and two more getting on at Riverdale. Thank you for your willingness and availability! You are AWESOME!

Seating: We will be sitting in row 9, putting small cases in row 8, and putting large cases in row 31. Please be sure to keep cases in the seats, not on the floors. The fire people are happy when we follow rules, and we'll certainly want to be able to clear the building if there is an emergency! If you are meeting us there, please meet us in row 9! :)

Always, ALWAYS, be an excellent audience for the other performances. (please!)

You may want to make a note of my cell number: 435 740 4335. I will have it with me!

  • There is room on the bus for cellos and probably basses… We've seen them fit before!
  • Each musician is very important to our performance. Since this is not technically a school-sponsored activity, their time off from school will need to be arranged on an individual basis. Please use the note below or as me for a full size version if it helps!
:) See Ya Monday!
