Please feed them as much as you can, as they won’t be able to eat again until they conclude the concert at approximately 9pm. Please make sure they have been to the toilet before bringing them to school. There will be hundreds of students arriving at the venue at the same time and a limited number of toilets.
Children will all be signed out at the end of the concert and can only be taken home by the people allocated on their permission form. If you need to make a change or add additional people who may pickup your child, please provide me uwith written consent before 3pm on Friday 15th September. Parents are not allowed backstage and photos are not permitted during the concert.
This is the first year the WA Massed Choir has been held at Perth Concert Hall. With a bigger venue we also have more tickets to sell. There is nothing quite like performing to a packed house! Our concert night has sold the most tickets so far, with 950 tickets being sold. There are still over 100 tickets available!
Tickets can be purchased from www.perthconcerthall.com.au or www.ticketmaster.com.au
Please make sure you purchase tickets for the correct date. We are Choir 4 and 16th September.
All forms will be collected from the office on Wednesday 13th September to be taken to the Thursday, 14th September rehearsal. These envelopes are passed straight onto the Massed Choir committee and are not opened at school. DVD’s can still be purchased on the concert night or up to 2 weeks after the concert using the information on the DVD form.
Congratulations to Sofia Martinez who has been selected by the Massed Choir committee to sing a solo on the night!
