Great concert—looking to 2019

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. 

Band will resume rehearsal on Wednesday, January 9 at 8:15 am. 

I hope that you enjoy a great holiday season!

2018-2019 Chorus/Band/Instrumental Lesson Schedule for Mrs. Repkoe

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!

Another Great Year!

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!

Great Job–and Band next week!

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.

Band members–we have our final morning rehearsal on May 2. That is the day we will also go to the high school to rehearse for the combined elementary concert.

The final band and strings concert is at Penn Manor High School on Thursday, May 3 at 7pm.

Concert April 24 at Central Manor

Remember that our concert at Central Manor is this Tuesday, April 24 at 7pm. This concert will feature band, strings, chorus and first grade.

Upcoming Chorus Concert at PMHS

A final reminder that our elementary combined choral concert will be on Thursday, April 5, 2018 at 7pm at Penn Manor High School auditorium. Please have singers there by 6:45. Dress for concert is “nice clothes”. There is no particular color or combination you must wear, just try to look your best.

The kids have worked hard and we are looking forward to this first concert of our Spring concert season.

See you there

Mrs. Repkoe
