We've been talking about this a lot in classes for the last week and a half, so hopefully you've already gotten the information from your son or daughter.
On Saturday October 10 (evening game starts at 7PM, we will be leaving in the 4:00 hour), the combined Clear Creek Choirs will be performing the National Anthem before a Houston Dynamo soccer game at BBVA Compass Stadium in downtown Houston. The Dynamo are playing a charity game against the Mexican team Santos Laguna. It should be a packed house and a great time.
There is no requirement or expectation for students to participate, but it is an incredibly fun event every year - there's nothing like singing the Anthem from down on the field and then hearing 25,000 people cheering for you! Nonetheless, participation is optional.
All students who are performing must purchase a ticket and ride the bus to and from the game. Participating students must pay $25 each ($20 ticket, $5 each to offset the cost of buses).
All friends, family members, teachers, and community members are encouraged to join us as well. Tickets for all non-choir students are $20 each.
As we have been talking about with the kids in class, payment for tickets is due tomorrow, Wednesday, 9/23/15. Please send exact change (cash) or make a check payable to CCHS Choir Booster Club in the amount of $25/choir student and $20/extra ticket. If you would prefer to use PayPal, please e-mail me so I can give you the information you need.
FALL AND WINTER CONCERT DATES ARE SET - PLEASE ADD TO YOUR CALENDAR
Our two required first-semester concert dates are finally set. Due to construction, our auditorium is not available for use in the first semester. I have been working all summer on trying to secure a place for our concerts, and it proved more difficult than expected to find places that would work. But we finally have locations for both.
Please add the following dates and times onto your calendar immediately. These concerts are required and a major grade for every choir student. All students will participate in these regardless of eligibility. More details on the concerts will follow at a later date.
Fall Concert will be on Thursday, 10/22/15, at 7:00 PM at Webster Presbyterian Church.
Winter Concert will be on Thursday, 12/10/15 at 7:00 PM in the Clear Springs HS Auditorium.
HOMECOMING WEEK NEXT WEEK - MANDATORY PERFORMANCES
Next week is Homecoming Week here at Creek, and the choir has a couple of required performances.
On Friday, all choirs will sing the National Anthem at the Homecoming Pep Rally during school. Students are required to wear their choir t-shirt.
On Friday night, all choirs will sing the National Anthem at the Homecoming Football Game at Veterans Memorial Stadium. Students are required to wear their choir t-shirt, formal black pants, and formal black, non-heeled shoes. Students must arrive at 6:00 PM for warmup. Students will gain free admission to the Homecoming Football Game, but there is no requirement or expectation to stay for the game. Students' obligations to the choir will end when we are done with the Anthem. There will be no supervision of students after the Anthem is complete. Students may either stay at the game on their own or go home immediately after we are done with the National Anthem.
Please note that both of these performances are required performances and major grades. Students' grades will be deducted for improper uniform/attire or for arriving late.
Choir t-shirts are in and being sorted. They should be handed out in classes this week.
Please write Mr. Stultz or I if you have any questions.
