Parents’ Meeting Success

Thanks to all who came to the Parents’ Meeting. We had a great turn-out and there was a lot of positive energy in the room! It was good to see everyone again and meet some new families! We even got a good start to recruiting some cello students, and Mary Catherine’s piece sounded wonderful.

If you couldn’t make it to the meeting, please see your teacher as soon as possible to get signed up for the program. New families who are interested should contact Diane Ford.

Looking forward to orchestra and ensemble next week on Tuesday at the usual time, and the first cello group lesson and violin play-in on Sept. 4. The calendar page has been updated with all of these times and dates. Group violin lessons are tentatively scheduled through December. The schedule may change, so check back each month for updates. Don’t forget, you can also subscribe to the calendar and get the latest information, if you use a calendar program on your phone or computer. See the link at the bottom of the calendar page.

And of course, all current and interested violin students and their families are encouraged to come to the parents meeting, too! We’ll have lots of information on the program, upcoming events, and registration. Family memberships are due now, so current families, bring your checkbooks!
