Abravanel Hall Information -- Immediate attention needed

We have our schedule!

As we await confirmation from the bus company, we are going to assume that everything works out because you all need to be able to make plans.

I have copied and pasted the information below, but you can find all of it also in the attachment (along with an excuse letter for school and a permission slip to turn in to me). And here is a link to the (REVISED) attachment in case you are reading this on the blog. 

Regarding the permission slip - I need it this Saturday! I will bring all this on Saturday printed out for you, but if you want to be on the ball, just print and fill it out for me now. You can take a picture and send it, or hand it to me when you arrive for the dress rehearsal.

Dress Rehearsal: We are not asking you to dress up for the dress rehearsal this time. But bring your concert black so you're in proper formal attire for the concert! and guys! Don't wait until Saturday to get your black bow ties!

Okay, here's all the Abravanel Hall info. Last year we were first. This year we are last! Let's end the day with a big booming blast!

Have a great day, and do let me know if you have questions!
