Your hydration plan begins today… please make sure that you are taking care of your body. This just makes for easy performances etc.

We plan to perform all of the show music this Friday. Please make sure that you are getting everything memorized. Also, some attention needs to be paid to the National Anthem, as it was not up to par last week.
