We are headed to OrlandoFest (a musical festival held at Universal Studios) on April 2, where we will have the opportunity to perform for esteemed judges and participate in an educational clinic. Activities like these reinforce teamwork while providing opportunities for personal and ensemble growth.

Our students are diligently fundraising to help pay for this trip and any help we receive from the community will greatly appreciated by me, the proud Director and by the students and their families.

Calendar Updated for 2015 – 2016 School Year

The Charms calendar has been updated to reflect all of the major events for the upcoming school year.  The calendar on the music department web site is a direct reflection of the Charms calendar.  If you want basic information, this web site will provide that, but for details about a specific event, you will have to log in to your Charms account.

Please mark your calendars now and plan accordingly.  Dates about rehearsals and other smaller events will be announced as they are needed, but, as always, with at least a week’s notice, per the handbook.

I am looking forward to a great year!
