"If for any reason a child must miss a rehearsal, please notify the Artistic Director at 208 230-4344 in advance of the scheduled rehearsal. Any unexcused absence will immediately place the student on probation."

There should never be anyone missing from a rehearsal that Mrs. Walker doesn't know about! We ask you to please carefully adhere to this policy!

They're Off And Running

The first rehearsals last night, Tuesday 11th, were fabulous! We are so pleased with the caliber of talent and the eagerness of students to learn. Even Apprentice Choir practically learned and memorized a song in just one rehearsal.

We will continue to accept new students in all choirs through September. Contact Linda Walker, Artistic Director, at 208 230-4344.

We still have openings in Premier Singers for talented singers age 14 and older.
