Dear Prelude II Singers & Families,

I hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend! We’ve been really working to memorize and start to polish our performance music in Prelude II these past few weeks as we are approaching performance time!  Prelude II will have our in-class recital on Tuesday, December 10th, during our regular class time. For this performance, singers should wear their FULL UNIFORM (red Cantabile polo with black slacks, socks and shoes – for boys; red Cantabile polo with black skirt, tights, and shoes – for girls).

In preparation for our last month of rehearsals, please help your child to memorize his/her music. We’ve done a lot of memorizing in class, but there may be some pieces need some individual work outside of rehearsal time.  Singers have been give copies of many of their pieces and/or the lyrics – please find a copy of the song “My Favorite Thing” here.

If you have any questions about the uniform, in-class recital, etc., please feel free to reach out!
