Welcome back to music at Rose Bay in 2013! We are looking forward to another wonderful year.
Rehearsals: We are underway in Week 3 for the most part – your child should go to their regular rehearsal, Murray and co. will assess them and allocate them to the right group accordingly:
Concert Stage, Strings, Percussion: commence in Week 3 – from Monday 11 Feb on the same days as in 2012.
Vocal Groups: will be advised in Week 2, Feb 4 as Murray is currently finalising recruitment. At this stage we expect Thursday 7 Feb to be a combined audition for new and returning members + new conductors – please can all members attend.
Rock Bands:Ben Bryant will advise in Week 2 of the schedule for 2013, and we will advise Rock Bands all new and returning members
Other events – Monday 11 Feb MEP are hosting an info night for new and returning members –It is essential we welcome and enthuse new parents to be part of our program and to actively be part of our committee – to this end we host a free sausage sizzle from 6pm and need helpers from 5pm to help our and to help communicate the program. The more advocates the better. Let Celia know if you can be there firstname.lastname@example.org – in particular we desperately need a communications-savvy parent to publicise the program and get involved in emailing members with key information.
NZ Tour – Lidia is emailing separately about the Tour as paperwork is due now – please respond quickly to minimise our volunteers’ time in chasing up forms and money.
Finally – First committee meeting for the year is 7pm Monday 25 – We need new participants. We need you more than ever to demonstrate how important music is at our school in the face of massive cuts to school budgets in public education.
Looking forward to your mighty support in 2013
