    CHEVIES 2020-2021
     
    Thank you all for auditioning for Chevies. Posting this list is one of the most challenging things about the year: I don't want to let people down, but I know some of you will be disappointed. Please know that I have so much respect and love for all of you. 
     
    Chevies: we will be rehearsing every week on TUESDAY AND THURSDAY MORNINGS FROM 9:00 - 9:55 A.M. This was the time that worked best for the most people. There are a few people that told me they couldn't come during either of those times. If that's you, come talk to me asap. We'll see what we can work out.
