If you have questions about clothing, please contact me. Black socks/tights. No No-show socks! Black BOW TIE for boys; I only have one spare, so get one before Saturday. The Peach Tree in Brigham City is like a mini Quilted Bear. They have a tie booth. Inexpensive and (for some) convenient. (This isn't an endorsement; but my boys like it there!)

This is going to be a great weekend!

Also, please note: There is no rehearsal November 28, which is Thanksgiving weekend, but there are rehearsals in December on the 5th, 12th, and 19th (and there will also be a Christmas Party on the 19th after rehearsal, 11-12).

Interested in performing a solo or small ensemble number in our upcoming recital, January 30? Watch for the sign up sheet at the concert!
