Voice of the Eagles - 4/7/16

posted Apr 8, 2016, 4:33 PM by Eldorado Choirs

Dear EHS Choirs,


We sure hit the ground running this week. Since returning from Spring Break, we've already had an awesome end of the year Show Choir concert, plus a great clinic with guest clinician Matt Greer in Concert Choir today, and two fantastic Show Choir Audition Workshops with Jonathan Ragsdale. Phew! On the horizon we still have State Choir as well as preparations for our Spring Choir Concert followed by our end of the year Banquet and Graduation. The end of the year will be here before we know it.
