Greetings, Prep 1 Families!

Thank you for another wonderful week of music-making in Prep 1! Our recitals are getting close, and we are all very excited for you to experience all the music and fun – please continue to use this blog as an important source of information, and a tool for your child to continue learning at home! Please note: ALL Prep 1 classes are back at FCC as usual next week!

 

Recital Season is Coming!

Prep Recitals are a wonderful tradition here at Cantabile. They provide friends and family a little window into our prep classes, featuring songs, dances, games and musicianship activities from the entire season, with brief explanations from the teachers. It is a great opportunity for your child to perform in a low-key and fun setting! We can’t wait to share our accomplishments with you! Here is some information:

Jazmine and Emily’s Prep 1 Class Recital (Tuesday and Wednesday Prep 1):

Tuesday May 17th– 3.30-4.15 pm (*please note day switch for Emily’s class!) Sign up for the potluck here!

Katie’s Prep 1 Class Recital (Thursday Prep 1):

Thursday, May 19th – 3:30-4:15 pm (*please note earlier time!) Sign up for the potluck here!

Uniforms

New Cantabile singers will need uniforms for our spring recitals and concert – please order as soon as possible at Merry Mart Uniforms, as they tend to sell out of the Prep skirts fairly quickly. Singers will need to be in full Cantabile uniform for the Prep 1 Recitals. Please note that Prep 1 singers need to be wearing the red polo shirts with the Cantabile logo, and uniform black pants for boys, and skirts for girls.

Recital Preparation at Home!

All three classes are in the midst of final recital preparations – we are having so much fun learning these songs! Please use the Prep 1 Recital Lyrics sheet to help your child prepare, specifically these songs:

Have a great weekend!
