We’re excited for our first play-in of the month on Tuesday!  A reminder that all classes are canceled on play-in days, with the exception of Sonora and Cello Ensemble 3.  Sonora will meet at 5:30 for rehearsal, then head to the play-in.  Cello Ensemble 3 will meet for rehearsal after the play-in.

We’ll gather after the play-ins for a Pizza and Ice Cream Social on the 4th floor.  Pizza will be available to purchase for $3/slice, drinks for $1, and ice cream sundaes for $1.  $5 will cover a slice of pizza, drink and sundae!  We’ll have credit card readers and cash available for payment.  A big thank-you to our older violin and cello students who are helping serve pizza and ice cream!
