Dear Choir Parents, We hope you all had a terrific Thanksgiving break. Let the holiday season begin! This week is Sounds of the Season Tech and Show week. (One of the best ways to kick off the holiday festivities!) Please remind your student to take advantage of downtime during rehearsals for homework and to rest up and eat healthy. Our meal moms are hard at work to provide nutritious snacks during rehearsals. Here are a few Choir items you may want to know this week:
SOUNDS OF THE SEASON- Is this week Thursday December 5th and Saturday December 7th (2:00 matinee). Main floor is selling out fast. Click here for tickets: http://www.gpsouthchoir.org/2019-sots-tickets/\
COOKIES WITH SANTA— The choir boosters are hosting a Cookies with Santa event from 12-1:30pm before the 12/7 Sounds of the Season matinee. If you have or know kids who would enjoy visiting with Santa and his choir student helpers, and visit the Christmas decorated stage at the PAC with choir student guides in their beautiful costumes, click here to order tickets: http://www.gpsouthchoir.org/cookies-with-santa/
CAROLING DRIVERS NEEDED!!!!— Ok we really need you! We rely on parent drivers to transport choir caroling groups to their events on Friday 12/13 and Saturday 12/14. Each group receives a schedule of 6-8 events. Sign up early to transport your student and his or her group. This is a fun way to participate with the students and enjoy this holiday caroling event.

Call Lorie Vogel, our Caroling Coordinator, at 313-475-9150 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org for information to schedule your entertaining ensemble for December 13 & 14, or call the South Choir Office at 313- 432-3638 to schedule a group for another day.
CHOIR STUDENT SAVINGS ACCOUNTS— (formerly known as student escrow account). Advertise your business, or solicit others and earn 30% for your student’s account.

Annual advertising and sponsorships run the calendar year (January -December). If you are interested in earning money for your student’s account, the information for soliciting and ordering business sponsors and ads is attached here.
NO CASH CHOIR FUNDRAISERS — Reminder You can raise money for the Choir by shopping normally at Kroger, Amazon and The Portrait Place. Each of these retailers will donate a portion of your purchases to the Choir.
