Calling all singers who are up to a challenge!

Looking to challenge yourself and become a better singer in the process?  Audition for the All-State Chorus.  Form and audition fee are due tomorrow, September 14, 2018.  CLICK HERE FOR FORM

You can’t go to the concert without a uniform – that fits!

Men:  Good News!  The tuxedos are scheduled to arrive early next week. Pick up will be at Michelle Dobo’s house, and you will be sent a separate email when everything is ready for you.

Women:
* There are still 8 of you who have not picked up your full or partial uniform. If this is you, please contact Michelle Dobo at michelledobo@gmail.com or 404-429-7355 (cell) to arrange to pick up today.

* Try on your dress and shoes ASAP. If something doesn’t fit, we have a limited time to get it exchanged or ordered.

* Hem your dress — nearly all dresses require hemming and you need to allow 7-10 days to have that completed. Your dress should be hemmed to 1 1/2 inches off the floor with the shoes on. Contact Michelle Dobo at the above information if you would like a seamstress recommendation.

What do lollipops and football have in common?

They both happen at Raider Valley on Fridays and need your support. Walton Chorus sells gourmet lollipops at every home game, and we are looking for one parent to help with each of the next four home games — September 21, October 5, October 12 and October 19. The students do most of the work, but we must have a parent present, so if you can come help support Chorus and the Raiders on one of these Friday nights, email Glynis Holihan at glynis@atlpromo.com.

Sing on,
Walton Chorus Booster Board
