Everyone is included at each performance unless we have indicated
otherwise. Each performance generally lasts about 45 minutes.
For each performance, PLEASE CAREFULLY NOTE the performance time
as well as the arrival time.
If you are going to participate in a performance, you need to be at
practice the Thursday/Friday evening before. On occasion, we will make exceptions;
however, it is your responsibility to let us know of your absence in advance. Our
phone number is 815-485-5324 and our email is
For each performance, wear the new maroon shirts (not tucked in) with
basic, plain blue denim shorts (no designs, no holes, no lace, no cut-offs, no glitter,
no ties, etc. - just plain). Shorts should be above the knee and not too short. Please
wear white socks - the low kind that don’t show in your shoe or just barely come up
above your shoe. Also only wear your shirt for performances so that it stays nice.
Once our performing season is over, then feel free to wear it whenever you want.
Please wear your hair back off your face.
We try to get this information to you in advance so that you can mark
your calendars and hold as many of these dates open as possible. We know it is
difficult to know your entire summer schedule at this time. However, to the best of
your ability, please indicate your availability on the attached pink sheet and return it
to us no later than May 22. If you have a conflict come up after you make the
commitment, please contact us AS SOON AS YOU CAN so that we can adjust as
We enjoy our group and our performances, but there are two situations
that make us crazy. Situation #1 - when people call us at the last minute to cancel
when the situation was avoidable; so when at all possible, please give us advance
notice. Situation #2 - when people don’t arrive on time. We understand that
sometimes it is frustrating for you to arrive on time and then feel like you are just
standing there. However, it takes all of the advance time for us to organize. We
appreciate all of you who arrive on time and then just patiently wait while we line
people up and attend to last minute details.
Reminder: Thursday, May 28, is the special practice night for everyone
who is planning to perform with us at all this summer. We will meet at our usual
location, Francis Field, from 6:30 - 8:30 pm. We need EVERYONE there! Although
your absence would not necessarily preclude you from performing this summer, we
ask you to make this practice a priority in your schedule. If you cannot attend, we do
need to know in advance.
Thank you for your willingness to participate. We are glad to have you performing
with us this summer - we hope you have fun!
If you have any questions, please talk to us on a Thursday/Friday, email, or give us a
