Dear Parent or Guardian:
It has been a pleasure working with your child this year as he/she continues to learn to play a string instrument. One of our goals this year has been to prepare ourselves for a public performance. To prepare for our performance, each elementary school has scheduled a group rehearsal time. This rehearsal is in addition to our regularly scheduled lessons. Your child should bring his/her instrument and lesson book to school on the day of his/her instrumental lesson, AND on the day of the group rehearsal.
Due to the changes in our instrumental program, our performance has been added to the Annual Colonial Days event at the GMIS/Mifflin Park/Cumru Elementary Campus on May 23, 2011. Our combined performance of all 4th grade string students from Cumru, Brecknock, and Mifflin Park Elementary Schools will kick off the days events, beginning at 9:30 a.m. in the GMIS gym. Our groups performance will conclude by 10:00.
Parents and family members are encouraged to attend, however because of the numerous events scheduled for the day, and the rigorous schedule, family members will not have the opportunity to meet with orchestra members following their performance.
To prepare for our 4th Grade Orchestra performance, all participating students are required to attend a rehearsal on Thursday, May 19. The group rehearsal will run from 6:30 7:30 p.m. in the GOVERNOR MIFFLIN INTERMEDIATE SCHOOLl (GMIS) gym. Students will need to bring instruments and lesson books. Parents are welcome to stay for the rehearsal
