Final Gala Information

We have a busy week coming up, so here’s all the information in one place for you:

Matinee Update

It’s been approved, however they want us to do it in period 5 rather than period 2. More info on this below.

Documents/Videos

Here are the links to all the resources I’ve sent out over the past couple of weeks:

  • Lyrics to memorize
  • Choreography videos [ text/email/see me for the link – will not be posted publicly ]
  • Scheduling/Draft Program (PDF) – including dress rehearsal schedule
  • Costuming (PDF) – Costuming notes:
    • For the matinee there will be no costume changes. Pick your favourite costume from the evening performance and wear it for the full matinee!
    • There is no specific costume for the Gala Finale. Just keep on your most recent costume.
    • Please take care during costume changes that you keep your articles of clothing all together to avoid lost items.

The “Where” and “When”

  • Wednesday, May 1
    • Come to the cafeteria at the beginning of period 5 for our dress rehearsal.  You do not need to be in costume. Concert choir will be done by 3:00 at the latest.  If you’re in other things, see the rehearsal schedule (found by clicking on the Scheduling/Draft Program link above)
  • Thursday, May 2
    • Period 2 – Final rehearsal in the cafeteria. This is the last chance to fix any last minute problems that occurred the evening prior. If you have a class period 2 that you absolutely can’t miss I can live with that, but please come if at all possible!
    • 12:45pm (halfway through period 4) – Meet in the cafeteria to prepare for the matinee
    • 1:30-2:30pm – Matinee performance
    • 6:45pm – Arrive, drop costuming off in change rooms (down the tech hall – signs will be posted)
    • 7:00pm – Warm-up in the vocal room
    • 7:30pm – Gala begins. It will last approximately two hours. Following the Gala, everyone needs to stay for 15 minutes or so to help clean up.
    • 10:15pm – Social at Moose Winooski’s on Bayfield Street (optional – parents responsible for transportation)

Tickets

  • $10 each, available online until April 30 (preferred purchase method). Tickets purchased online will be distributed to students at the dress rehearsal on May 1.
  • Tickets can also be purchased in the music office by cash or cheque (made out to Eastview Secondary School), or at the door by cash.

I think that covers everything! If there’s any other questions please get in touch. Looking forward to next Thursday!
