WWS SHOW CHOIRS UPDATE
Hello everyone! Things are starting to get into a higher gear around here! I have some items for you all. I’ve tried to make this brief…please read everything and let me know if you have any questions!
COLUMBUS DAY REHEARSAL
Starts at 9am at WWS. Pizza will be provided for lunch! Excited to keep working!
-Esprit and Classics each have their own entry in the 1st ever WWS Homecoming Parade. The Parade is Tuesday October 15th, at 5pm. It will be a relatively short parade, approximately .5 mile. We're going to have our staging area in the Atten Park (tennis court area) parking lot, march down Wiesbrook and then end in the WWS parking lot. The groups are planning on wearing Classics/Esprit gear and walking with signs and handing out candy. MEET AT ATTEN BETWEEN 4-4:30. THIS IS NOT MANDATORY TO ATTEND. It would be great to have a big turnout for the first ever parade, though!
ESPRIT AND CLASSICS COMBINED PARENT GET TOGETHER
While many of our students attend the Homecoming dance, please join us and meet the parents of the 2020 Show Choir competition season.
We'll enjoy complimentary appetizers and soft drinks. Alcoholic beverages (cash bar) will be available. Live band starts at 7:30 in the Fireplace Room.
Please RSVP HERE: http://evite.me/e28Gw7fVDs BEFORE Monday 10/14 so we have an accurate count for food.

A detailed schedule is coming soon, but for now plan 6pm-10pm on 11/15 and 9am-3pm/BREAK to change/6pm-11pm on 11/16. We have a great clinician, Heath Weber - Dean of Fine Arts at Morningside College in Sioux City coming to lead us through some team building activities.

SHOW CHOIR CLINIC
This year, both Classics and Esprit will attend Clinic on the same day at the same location. The clinic is once again hosted by Naperville North and will run from 8am-approximately 4:30pm on Saturday December 14. Our show choirs will be joined by Naperville North’s Show Choirs as well as a Show Choir from Naperville Central. Should be a great day of learning, improving and connecting!
