ISSMA Cancellations


We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but yesterday we received word from the ISSMA Executive Committee and the Indiana State Department of Health that all ISSMA organizational contests will be cancelled through the beginning of April.:( Unfortunately this means that all of the times and schedules and info that we sent home over the past couple of weeks can be disregarded for next Saturday. This does not mean that all of the hard work that the kids have been putting into getting their songs ready for contest will go to waste however! They will still be performing these pieces for you all during the Final Blast concerts in May, so try to keep a lid on your anticipation until then!:) Sorry for the disappointing news! Hopefully everyone can now plan a nice, peaceful, and relaxing Saturday next weekend (filled with lots of sleep and hand washing)!

NHS Musical This Weekend!

We’ve had a great week here in choir beast land as we’ve jumped back into the swing of things! In case you are looking for something to do this weekend, the kids (I can still call them that right:) ) over at high school hit the ground running as well as they’ve been preparing to put on their performance of the hit musical “Newsies”! They would love to see you there! Here’s a little bit of info to pique your interest!

This Disney Broadway production is based on the newsboys strike of 1899 in New York City that changed the child labor laws forever.  It’s filled with song, dance, drama and romance as Joseph Pulitzer is taken on by a group of ragamuffin kids.
Tickets are on sale through the website for $12 each.  Tickets at the door will be $15. Bring the family for a night of great entertainment and support the Middlebury theater program.
Good luck to our NHS performers and hope you all have a great weekend!
