Emily’s Thursday Prep 2 Blog

For Thursday, April 11, 2019

Dear Prep 2 Families,

Thank you so much for reading the blog!  We have many important announcements this week.

This coming Thursday, rehearsal will be held at the First United Methodist Church of Palo Alto.  The address is 625 Hamilton Street.

Please make sure that you have your child’s uniform all in order.  If you don’t already have one, please order one from Merry Mart.

If you have not yet sent a 3-ring binder for your child, please do!

The All-Choir Concert will take place on May 11, and your children need to have number of pieces memorized.  First, our prep 2 pieces  Little Firefly and Manx Lullaby.  In addition, they need to know the group songs, that I have been including in the blogs for the past several weeks. I will make sure we go over them this Thursday so the can get a good start.  I will always include what you need to know at the end of the blogs.

This week, we spend most of our time working on singing together as a choir.  They are actually quite close to memorizing their Prep 2 songs, so keep up the good work at home!  I will run the songs from memory this week.

We will still be doing The Rainbow Connection at our recital on May 16th, but I have decided that we are going to do it all in unison rather than singing the 2 part arrangement.   The kids already have so much music to learn!  

We have 2 additional songs that have been added as all-choir numbers for the concert. I am including a recording for one of them, I was Here, below.

All Choir Songs (we haven’t looked at these, and won’t have much time, so just having it in the heads can help out a lot).

Come and Sing


Thanks for all you do, and I’ll see you on Thursday!
