During the Lent season, there will be additional services at Mt. Carmel. Please continue to use their space respectfully and quietly. Resident Choir West will enter via the Center Street doors and from now until Easter will rehearse in the Upper Room located behind the Sanctuary.  All students should be aware that a Service of Worship will be going on each Wednesday from 6:30 - 7:30 PM.  Also, students should be aware that both the Sanctuary door and the door to the Upper Room must BOTH be closed in order to avoid a sound bleed from the Upper Room into the Sanctuary. 
Students who need to use the restroom will need to go the opposite way down down the hallway from the Upper Room and to the staircase leading to the first floor (NOT going through the back of Sanctuary). Students are asked to refrain from using the bathroom, except in the case of emergencies due to the proximity of the bathrooms to the sanctuary.

Voices of Eterna Choir Camp is scheduled for July 31 - August 4, 2017.  All members of the 2017-2018 Voices of Eterna are required to be at the choir camp.  
Only members of Resident Choir who are currently completing their 2nd season in Resident Choir are eligible to audition for membership in Voices of Eterna.  The audition will consist of a vocal hearing, sight singing assessment, and interview with both student and parent(s).  All of these elements are required in order to be considered for acceptance into the 2017-2018 Voices of Eterna.  Auditions will take place in the month of May.  Please take the necessary steps to plan accordingly should your child be eligible for Voices of Eterna. 
Camp begins each morning at 8:30 AM and ends at 8:00 PM.  There is a fee associated with this camp which normally is between $100 - $200.  This covers all meals (except for breakfast), and activities throughout each day. 

Thanks again everyone and see you next week!
