Weekly Updates 6/18/17

Good morning!

The following are updates for Chorus, Chorale, and Spotlight. For those of you new to Weekly Updates, you can find previous newsletters on my website: www.roslynmschorus.org. If you would like to unsubscribe to these emails, please respond to this email with: “UNSUBSCRIBE”. You are automatically subscribed if you sent an email regarding Chorus, Chorale, or Spotlight.

ANNOUNCEMENTS: 
  • We made it! Welcome to the last week of school! I hope everyone has an amazing summer!!! Thank you for an extraordinary year. Good luck to all the 8th graders at graduation and next year!!
  • Please respond to this email with which emails you would like to be subscribed to next year so you can receive emails the last week of August, before school. Otherwise you will be added after school has already started.
  • IMPORTANT SPOTLIGHT CHANGE: Instead of “Javert’s Suicide” for auditions, I am going to swap it out for “Stars” and instead of “Do You Hear the People Sing” I’m swapping it for “Red an Black”. EVERYONE auditioning will also sing “Do You Hear the People Sing.” See below in the “Spotlight” section for other important and exciting updates. Additional info can be found on my website under the “Spotlight” section.
  • ANOTHER IMPORTANT SPOTLIGHT CHANGE: The cut for Eponine’s audition song has also been changed. I fixed the link online so you can see the cut and practice with the backing track: www.roslynmschorus.com/spotlight-presents
WEEK AT A GLANCE: (I tried last week to send this as a chart, but I realize the formatting doesn’t work for GMAIL, AOL, or OPTONLINE….so this will be better!)

CELEBRATIONS AND MILESTONES

  • Congratulations to everyone on completing a fantastic year!
  • I’d also like to add a “CELEBRATIONS AND MILESTONES” as a permanent section. If you’d like something on there such as a birthday, achievement, celebration, etc., you can send me an email the week before you’d like it to be there.

 

LOOKING AHEAD:

  • For those of you who have students registered in chorus, Chorale, or are planning on doing Spotlight, next year, you will need to re-sign up for these Weekly Updates. You can do so by sending me an email with which email list(s) you’re interested in, or you can go to my website and send me an email from there: www.roslynmschorus.org/contact.
  • You can also sign-up for new REMIND text reminders on the website homepage, www.roslynmschorus.org, or on the contact page, www.roslynmschorus.org/contact.
  • I recommend signing up for emails and texts BEFORE the school year ends so when we get closer to the beginning of the new school year, you will be in contact with me. I plan on sending my first emails at the end of August.
  • For eighth grade parents, don’t worry about unsubscribing since I’m starting a new email group for next year. This group will just dissolve.

 

Have a terrific week!

 

All my best,

Cyndi Feinman
