Teal (the all comers' choir) begins next Thursday 22 February. If you have already done the online registration that's great. If you haven't please register here asap (this is for both new and old members).

There are two rehearsals each Thursday - before school starting at 10 to 8, and at lunchtime, and you need to come to them both.

Voice placement sessions for new members will be held in the music room on Monday 19 February at lunchtime or straight after school, and on Tuesday 20 February at lunchtime. Just wait on the music stairs and the music leaders will tell you what to do.
