Chamber Music Festival entry fees DUE!

If you did not turn these in prior to the Winter Break, please turn them in BY Friday, January 10!Each entry costs $5 – this means if a student is playing both a solo and an ensemble, the TOTAL entry fee for them is $10. Fees can be paid by cash/check and turned into the safe with “CMF 2020 Entry Fee – Student Name” listed on the envelope.

Woodwind/Brass students: If you are playing a solo, there is also a $40 accompanist fee. This fee covers 2 rehearsals and a performance with a professional pianist that we hire for you. ALL solos must be performed with an accompanist. We organize this for you to not only make it convenient but also save money! $40 is a great deal for this service! Please turn the accompanist fee into the safe with “CMF 2020 Accompanist Fee – Student Name” listed on the envelope. Do not pay your accompanist directly!

Google Classroom Assignments are DUE this week. Please double-check your due dates online – be prepared!
