HOLIDAY CONCERT THURSDAY EVENING! Our next concert is in two days:  Thursday, December 12 at 7 p.m. OHS Auditorium.  Call time (check-in) is 6 p.m.  Invite family and friends to celebrate the holiday season with a wonderful (and FREE!) evening of musical merry-making!  NOTE THAT STUDENTS WILL DEBUT THEIR NEW FORMAL CONCERT ATTIRE AT THIS CONCERT - please make sure that all hemming and ironing is done in time!  Students are also asked to bring a fun HOLIDAY HAT from home for the grand finale performance.

POST-CONCERT RECEPTION.  Symphonic families are hosting the post-concert reception in the lobby.  Anne Suh has sent out a Sign-Up Genius invitation to Symphonic families to contribute goodies and set-up items.  In case you missed it, the link is here Holiday Concert Reception Sign-Up.  Thanks in advance for your contributions!

CONCERT RECORDINGS!  We would love to have a good quality sound recording of next week's concert. If you have a decent recording device and would like to help, please let contact Mr. Oppenheimer.  

Note that a professional video recording of the concert will be available for purchase at the concert for a price of $10.  Consider this special holiday gift for grandparents and other family members who, sadly, might be missing the evening's program. You'll want to re-live the musical magic yourself, so bring your checkbook!
