I have given you all a Christmas book ($5) and this you will have it forever until it wears out!! In the meantime every year you will learn a few new pieces from the program until eventually you are playing every single piece!! When we do music on the concert that you don't know, you can either stand in rest position or I will have you exit the stage until that part of the program is over and it is time for the next song that you know. The dress for the concert is black trousers black socks and black shoes for the boys with a white shirt and long tie or bow tie, red vest; black skirt black tights and black shoes for the girls with a white 3/4 sleeve blouse for the girls and red vest. Remind me that you need a red vest and I will fit you with one ($20). This you will keep and wear every year for the concert until you grow out of it or graduate. When you need a larger size just bring it back and we will exchange it. If I don't have your size our wonderful Kari Child will be making extra vests for us so we will all be looking good!! Try on your Christmas vest now so to make sure it fits for this year.
The mystery performer is our Jingle Bell player. Who will it be? Every year I invite a young person not in the Godfrey Studio to play the jingle bells with us on several of our fun pieces. Soon we will know!! The final Jingle Bell Strings rehearsal is December 14 from 10am to 12noon at my ward building. I will give you directions that week. The Jingle Bell Strings concerts are on December 21 at 11am at the downtown library auditorium and at 2:30pm at the Parklane Senior Apartments on 1st South and 6th East. I will have invitations so that you can invite all of your family and friends to the Library which seats 200 people. Let's fill it up with all of the people we love to play for!! Happy Holidays!!
