As per ETVA policy each middle school will be invoiced for a lunch (Saturday) for each student participating in the Middle School Honor Choir plus one lunch for that school’s teacher. If you need additional lunches for chaperones please send this information to the ETVA Executive Secretary, firstname.lastname@example.org, by no later than Tuesday, Oct 31.
The All-State Page of the etva.org website has been updated to include a memo from Tyler Owens (MS Honors Choir chair) and an updated “ETVA MS Checklist for New Members.” The links for both of these documents are under the “Other” heading–you’ll have to do some scrolling to get past the repertoire section before seeing them!
Dear Middle School Directors,
We’ve been made aware that the ETVA policy manual and the all east web page had conflicting information regarding the number of student’s you’re allowed to register as of a about 10 days ago. We apologize for this inconsistency but would like to remind you that at the 2016 general meeting the MS caucus brought the recommendation to vote, and it subsequently was passed that schools are only allowed to bring 2 balanced quartets to All East. Therefore we are asking each school to register a maximum of 2 balanced quartets. If you have additional students, you can add up to 6 on the form and after the registration closes, and Tyler’s had a chance to look at balance, he’ll add additional people as long as the choir remains balanced and under the 250 person limit.
We had to reduce the number of students per school because MC was afraid the fire marshall would shut us down if we have numbers like we’ve had in the past in the middle school rehearsal room…and there is no other place to rehearse. We sincerely apologize for the lack of consistency on the web and appreciate your continued support of ETVA and passing on your love and knowledge of music to your students.
An additional note regarding All East. During the Zaxby’s lunch we’re requesting everyone stay in appropriate areas to eat AND clean up after themselves. This was a sore subject after last year.
