We also need between 3-5 parents to help with the set-up, grilling and clean-up, if you would be willing to do that, please respond to email@example.com

Hope to see everyone there!
Hello Encore Strings,
I am really sorry, but the district scheduled PD days for all teachers on Aug 27,28 and 29. As a result, I need to change the Charles Yang Encore Rehearsals:( WE will now rehearse on Monday Aug 26 from 12-3pm in the HS orchestra room. The rehearsals on Aug 27 and 28 are cancelled. Sorry for any inconvenience this might cause. Please do your best to make this rehearsal.
Also, I just received confirmation that our rehearsal with Mr Yang will take place on Wednesday, September 11 at 7:00 pm location TBD. This is the only time we will have to run through the pieces with Mr. Yang. This was the only time that we could fit into his and our schedule.
Remember the concert will take place on Sept 12 at 7:00 pm at Marshall Music.
Let me know if you have any questions and thanks for your flexibility.
