FYI for Wed May 7th thru Friday May 16th
Please refer to this FYI for most current rehearsal times and events.
Also...Please pay attention to WHEN rehearsals begin. You have been supplied with these dates so you can adjust your schedules. Do NOT assume a group always rehearses at the same time..we have to work around sharing a room and busy spring schedules....so no excuse for saying, I didn't know we had a rehearsal" Got it?

Thank you from the Sewell's
I wish to thank all of you who expressed your willingness to help my family while I was recently hospitalized. Unfortunately, while returning from a visit to our oldest son, my doctors feel I contracted pneumonia and H1N1 flu....which knocked me out with a double punch! Not the way to wrap up spring break, but I am very lucky to have a great medical team and my stay at OSU Ross Heart Hospital has me on the way to recovery! The power of prayer is an amazing thing and I thank you for yours and your support for Karen and Lea!
Now....we have things to do!!!!
We do not have the official date for the Fiesta Bowl Parade locked in yet, but their website continues to say Dec 27, so we feel that is what they are leaning towards. Please note that what is holding up the official confirmation is the non-confirmed date for the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl Game. It is tied into the parade, and they are still firming it up.
As soon as we know, we will pass along the information immediately.
The Symphonic Band will perform at State Contest Friday, April 25 @ Gahanna Lincoln High School@ 4:30 pm. The band will be performing in the AUDITORIUM. There will be guides at Gahanna to guide you. Underclassmen...this is a great chance to come out and support your friends.
Due to our musical, we are the first band to perform that evening.
The address for the high school is: 140 S. Hamilton Road Gahanna, OH 43230
VERY IMPORTANT CHANGE....VERY IMPORTANT CHANGE...VERY IMPORTANT CHANGE
We will be wearing Black and White dress up attire for contest. After the picture session, many of the uniforms are not matched and/or at the cleaners. We appreciate everything the uniform team does and we simply can't use the uniforms, nor do we want to add any further stress.
You looked great at District Contest...just remember black and white and watch the skirt length girls...we will be performing on the stage and the audience looks up.
We will load at 2 pm and plan on leaving Central approximately 2:30 pm.
IF YOU ARE INVOLVED IN THE MUSICAL AND ARE HAVING YOUR PARENTS PICK YOU UP TO REPORT FOR THE SHOW, YOU MUST HAVE A PERMISSION SLIP. IT NEEDS TO STATE THAT YOU WILL BE RIDING HOME WITH YOUR PARENTS AND PLEASE HAVE THE DATE AND PARENT SIGNATURE.
