The Varsity Choir will sing for all home basketball games as we have in the past.  A schedule of these games will be given at a later date. Please remember that PERFORMANCES and REHEARSALS are the grading criterion for Varsity Choir, so it is up to students to make arrangements to be available for the events listed and any others that may be added.  As in the past we work with other school activities. I understand personal circumstances might arise, but COMMUNICATION will help alleviate any conflicts or problems that may arise.  I expect notes from anyone that misses scheduled events.  This includes rehearsals as well as performances.
