POPSO Newsletter 3.13.2020

Posted: Friday, March 13

Dear POPSO families,

Welcome to our new and improved newsletters! All upcoming events, rehearsals, and any new information that involve your students can be found right here!

By now, you should have received an email from Ms. Jess regarding the decision to close POP programming for the next 3 weeks. We are projecting to continue with POPSO program following spring break on Monday, April 13th. Although this was a tough decision to make, it is in the best interest of our students, and the community to remain safe and healthy.  As tough as a time this can be, please encourage your students to stay productive and hey, pass the time by practicing some music! Please see below for the list of, unfortunately, cancelled events.

March 23rd, POPSO Spring Concert

March 29th, POPSO String Ensemble performance at HEUG Conference

April 3rd, Cello Duet Performance at Harriet’s Bookstore

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out. Please, stay safe and I will see you all when we return. 🙂

Welcome to our new POPSO family blog! We’ll be linking here in our weekly newsletters. Just as before, you’ll find updates about performances, schedules, and any other important information. We hope that this is another way we are making our communication more effective as we strive towards greater heights of musical excellence. As always, thanks for all you do!

All the best,
Mike Pechter
Program Manager
