  2. Sang through "Remembering Decembers"

  3. Shared what we are most looking forward to in December this year

  4. Read "Home Alone"

  5. Sang through "Somewhere in My Memory"

  6. Theory - combined group - homework: up to p. 18 (due January 11th)

I look forward to our concert this Saturday at 6:30 pm. I know you will enjoy the Junior Chorus videos, as well as getting to see the other choirs perform :)


Have a lovely Winter Break and see you in January ☺️.


Best wishes,

Ayanda
