Year-end Concert

I am very excited to let you know that we are working on a plan for a final spring performance opportunity which would involve a separate short concert in the gym for each of our four bands (7, 8, 9 and Jazz) with a small audience in the bleachers. Details are still being worked out and, if our plan is approved, dates and times for the concerts will be provided early next week.
