Our Central Manor chorus will begin rehearsing on Thursday, September 26 at 8:15 in the music room. Parents should drop students off at the front door no earlier than 8:05. Students will be able to enter the area between the double doors at that time. I will come to let students in at about 8:05. After 8:05, students should ring the bell at the office and Mrs. Smith will let them in.
After rehearsal in the music room, breakfast students will be dismissed at 8:45, others will be dismissed at 8:50 to their classrooms.
I am looking forward to another year of making great music together.
Thanks to all student musicians and parents for a great year of rehearsals and concerts at Central Manor. We were able to participate in the combined choral concert, Central Manor concert and combined band and orchestra concerts in April and the results were delightful!
We are now finished with our performances and before school rehearsals. Lesson groups will continue until the end of the school year.
Thanks for a great year of making music together!

Whenever there is any kind of delay, our chorus or band rehearsal for the day is canceled. We don’t ask parents to bring kids out before school when the weather could be dangerous.
I would like to thank all of the music students and parents for a great fall rehearsal season and a wonderful concert on December 4. Everyone is taking a little break until it is time to start rehearsing again in January.
Chorus will resume rehearsal on Tuesday, January 8 at 8:15 am.

Our Central Manor holiday concert will be held on Tuesday, December 4, 2018 at 7:00pm in the CM gym. It will feature band, chorus and grade 3. If you have a student in this grade or organization, keep your eyes open for a detailed information sheet.
Hi musicians! Many of you have already signed up for chorus or have been invited to join the band. Here is our schedule.
Chorus–TUESDAYS–Begins on September 25 @8:15. Please drop off at front doors and Mrs. Repkoe or Mrs. Smith will let you in. Come to the music room.
Band–WEDNESDAYS–Begins on September 26@8:15. Please drop off at front doors and Mrs. Repkoe or Mrs. Smith will let you in. Come to the music room.
Mrs. Repkoe’s Lessons–I’m very sorry that I am not allowed to do “day of the week” lessons anymore. I have been directed to do an 8 day cycle so that I can see more students. I know it is a very long time between lessons. I will see kids on ABCD-“odd” and ABCD “even”. They have their lesson assignments and I will put the correct date for the next lesson in their book each time. Hopefully this keeps confusion at a minimum.
Thanks for all of your support of our music program at Central Manor!
Thank you to all of the students and parents for another successful year of making music together. Our concerts at CM and the high school were rewarding and well attended.
I encourage all instrumental students to practice over the summer. We will start band and chorus again in late September. I’m looking forward to greeting a new group of 5th graders in band and chorus.
More information will follow at the beginning of next school year. In the meantime, sing, play, make music and have a great summer!
Thank you to all of the Central Manor musicians and parents for your support of our program and concert on Tuesday evening. We had a lovely evening of music and fun.
