PSHP Notes for Friday, October 22, 2021

New Masking Announcement
Asbury has revised their masking recommendations as of October 18.  The
church still recommends masks for all people, but they are optional for
those that have their CoVid vaccination.  Play and Sing His Praises will
still be having all students and teachers wearing masks at this time, no
matter their age or vaccination status, in order to protect each other.
Thank you for your understanding as we ensure that everyone is safe as we
sing and make music on Friday.

General Announcements
1.  Set-Up crews please check in at the Information Table each week.  Check
the door sign before you set up your room for any new notes on the post-it
note.  Please see the Information Table if you have any questions or
problems.  If you need a keyboard for a downstairs room, please go to the
music office in the north hallway off of the Fellowship Hall.  Upstairs
keyboards are stored in the storage room next to Room 203.
2.  Clean-Up crews please check in at the Information Table first.  Also
please check the back of the door sign for a picture of how to reset the
room at the end of the day.  The keyboard in Room 102 can stay in there, but
the rest of the keyboards need to be returned at the end of the day by the
clean-up crew.  All downstairs keyboards are returned to the music office in
the north hallway off of the Fellowship Hall.  Upstairs keyboards are stored
in the storage room next to Room 203.  After your room is restored please
return the door sign to the Information Table.
3.  Independent Theory classes are being held at 12:20 and 12:45 in Room
104, for any student that has a class conflict with their theory class.
There is no extra charge for this and it is so important that all PSHP get
both their ensemble class and theory class for all of their classes.  If a
student is both in a beginner class and an intermediate class, they will
need to take their beginner theory class at 12:20 or 12:45. Any student that
is in both Bach and Beethoven orchestra, will need to take their Beethoven
theory at either 12:20 or 12:45.  Any student that is in Mezzo Choir and
Bach Orchestra will need to take their Mezzo theory class at 12:20 or 12:45.
Please see me if you have any questions about this.  On another note, high
school students in advance classes (not first year Concert Choir students)
will only take one theory class at 1:45, unless they have a conflict at that
time.
4.  High School girls in advance classes will need to order a concert dress
if they have not already done so.  See Judy Cymbaluk in the Music Library to
be fitted.
