March 7, 2017
It may seem like we are a well oiled machine with every rehearsal, concert, fundraiser or event professionally orchestrated by a dedicated staff. But the reality is we rely on many parent volunteers to make the chorus run smoothly. If you haven't volunteered yet this season, now is your chance! We need chaperones for our three remaining concerts. 
Our final fundraiser of the season is the RAFFLE for a one week stay in HAWAII! We must be successful in order to finish the season 'in the black'. Please take time with your singer to look over the packages that were sent home with them last week. Contact the office, any board member, or your parent liaisons if you have any questions. We are here to help.

HamBingo is THIS SUNDAY!
Grab some friends and join us at this fun parents' night out on Sunday, March 12th at 8pm
Hosted by the resident Bingo-Diva, this is NOT your typical “church basement bingo.” Doors open around 7:30 and just $15 gets you a whole evening of bingo and entertainment. The show can get a little risqué, so leave your singers at home, grab some friends and come have a blast with our Pro Musica parents. Invite some friends and put this one on your calendar right now! No RSVP needed - just come ready to have some grown up fun. Cash bar and menu. Keep and eye out for a paperless post invitation that you can forward to friends!
