As we continue to monitor and adjust our upcoming performances and events, I wanted to reach out to you with an update on our upcoming “Step Up Concerts” which were scheduled for January 25th (Band), 27th (Orchestra), and February 8th (Chorus).
Based on a number of factors including (but not limited to) the number of students involved in these concerts, the number of audience members, and the number of student absences we have had recently, we have made the decision to postpone these events until later this Spring. These concerts are a wonderful opportunity and tradition for our staff, families, and students so this has been a difficult decision but one we believe is the right one at this moment in time. When the new dates and information are available, we will be sure to communicate with you as soon as possible. We appreciate your understanding, flexibility and support and look forward to these performances later this year.
Although these particular concerts are being postponed, we will continue to have local/school based programs with smaller groups and audiences such as our WHS Winter Play and 8th Grade Chorus concert this week. Rehearsals and Performing Arts classes both during and after school will also continue to be held with our current safety guidelines in place as well.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me or your school director at any time.
Thank you for your continued support of our Performing Arts Department.
