Dear Prep 3 Singers & Families,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It was so nice to see the Prep 3 singers this week – and I can’t believe we only have two more classes left.
To help your singer prepare for our Dec. 9th Lobby Performance and our Dec. 11th in-class Recital, please encourage them to focus on MEMORIZATION before our next class. Next week we will be working with our wonderful piano accompanist, Lindsey, so that the singers get a chance to rehearse with piano before the recital! I cannot stress enough the fact that memorization work needs to be done by every singer. In our short weekly rehearsal time, we are only able to spend so much time on repetition of each piece and singers must work outside of rehearsal to get fully memorized and performance ready.
Later this week you will receive another email from the Cantabile office with the specific logistic information for our Dec. 9th performance. Please keep an eye out for this info and let me know if you have any questions. There will also be a survey to indicate how you will be picking up your child from this performance. As many people will be attending the concert – we will dismiss most singers to their parents in the lobby. If you are NOT attending the concert, we need to know so that we can insure your child’s safety and make sure everyone is accounted for! The link to this survey will be in the email with other logistical information. We also need one or two volunteers to help out on the day of the performance (from 5-7pm). If you are interested in volunteering, please contact me (amy@cantabile.org) as soon as possible. Thank you!
As mentioned throughout the semester, all Prep singers must be in Cantabile Uniform for our Dec. 9th performance and Dec. 11th recital.  They will use this same uniform for our Spring Semester performances as well. Information on how to get a uniform can be found in last week’s blog post and in the Members Only section of the Cantabile website (click the “Uniforms” tab and scroll all the way to the bottom for Prep uniforms).
After our Dec. 11th Recital, there will be a short potluck to celebrate our wonderful semester together in Prep 2. Please see this Prep 3 Potluck Sign-Up to let us know what you’ll be bringing!
Best,
 Amy
