Music Festival For State Coming To Houlton Maine!
Here's how much work is done behind the scenes with the Houlton Maine music program and help from the parent's group, the Music Boosters. Houlton is hosting the State Vocal Jazz festival on Saturday, April 4.
This is an open letter from music director Rebeccas DeWan
"This is an excellent opportunity for the Music Boosters to raise a lot of money to help high school students get to New York City and continue to support all the ways the boosters help the music department. We will needs LOTS of parent help to make this festival run smoothly. The boosters did an amazing job with All Aroostook - a great warm up for the much larger State Vocal Jazz. Below is a list of ways you can be involved and the contact person for that activity:
1. Selling concessions on Saturday OR baking items to be sold (bring to school Friday individually wrapped).
Contact Peggy McGary (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Janice Good (email@example.com)
2. Selling t-shirts/tickets/flowers/candygrams on Saturday. Denise Hannigan is assembling the flowers (which sold really well at All Aroostook!). We need someone to spearhead the candygrams - purchase items that can be wrapped together (like lollipops), tied with ribbon, etc.
Contact Iliana Moreno (firstname.lastname@example.org)
3. Set Up and Tear Down performance and rehearsal areas Friday afternoon and Saturday night.
Contact Mary Beth DiMarco (email@example.com)
4. Everything else! We need adults to work at the registration table, tally and print awards, time performances, be judges' attendants, make food for the judges' room, attend doors to performance areas.
Contact Michelle Daigle (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Mary Jane Cleary (email@example.com)
A big thank you to the parents listed above for organizing different aspects of the festival! As soon as we know the schedule for the HS Show Choir and JH Show Choir (Cast of Everything's Groovy) to compete, we will post times on our website, in case you are interested in seeing it.
