    Dear Parent:

    Your child has shown an interest in participating in All-County Band or Chorus.  There are several commitments involved in this decision.  More detailed information with specific dates and times will follow at a later date.

    If your child is interested in band the auditions are in January.  Sixth grade band auditions are on Saturday, January 19th at Addison Central School.  Students will meet at the Canisteo-Greenwood elementary school to ride the bus to Addison.  Auditions will be played in front of a judge. 

    If your child is interested in chorus he/she will audition in class for Mrs. Smith.  A list will be sent to the county and we will be told who has been accepted to be in the chorus.

    If your child is chosen to be a member of the All-County Band or Chorus they will need to commit to rehearsals and a concert.  Sixth grade chorus will rehearse Friday, March 1st and Saturday March 2nd with a performance Saturday afternoon at Corning High School.  Students will leave school Friday in the middle of the day to go to Corning and will rehearse there until 7:00 pm.  They will ride the bus back to Canisteo-Greenwood High School.  Saturday morning they will be picked up at Canisteo-Greenwood High School to go to Corning to practice again.  There will be a concert Saturday afternoon which a family member must attend.  There will be no bus provided to return to Canisteo-Greenwood Saturday afternoon.

    Sixth grade band will rehearse Friday, March 22nd and Saturday March 23rd with a performance Saturday afternoon at Bath High School.  Students will leave school Friday in the middle of the day to go to Bath and will rehearse there until 7:00 pm.  They will ride the bus back to Canisteo-Greenwood High School.  Saturday morning they will be picked up at Canisteo-Greenwood High School to go to Bath to practice again.  There will be a concert Saturday afternoon which a family member must attend.  There will be no bus provided to return to Canisteo-Greenwood Saturday afternoon. 

    Please check all these dates to make sure your child is able to commit to them.  If a student is chosen to participate in one of these groups he/she must be able to attend all practices and performances.  Be aware that your child will need to miss school on Friday afternoon of the festival to attend rehearsals. 

    This is a great opportunity for your child and it is an honor if your child is chosen.  I appreciate your support of your child’s musical growth.  Please contact me if you have any questions.  My email is ksmith@cgcsd.org my phone number is 698-4225 ext.1178.
