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.SOPRANO (1's & 2's will be determined later)Aubree LuithleMorgan BestMaeci ThomasNeva AndrewMarrin Kolczak-HardyMabel DeGrandpreLucia GarrDelanie PetersonALTOMelody IrvineShea KeeneAdair ArnoldLydia BarrowHailey ChabotteAlexa ChavezHaiden MundenTabby LawrenceKennedy Kuhn(there are a lot of altos because TWO will always float down to tenor!)TENORJustin JamesNick MonsosAiden AdamsScott LarsonBASSRyan HanksMason ParkeyZane TubertyCole BanksDelfino ForrestGabe RayleCade Slayden
