    Dear Parent/Guardian:


                Just an update on some upcoming, exciting events for DEMS Chorus!

    • The chorus/band Winter Concert will be held on Thursday, December 16, 2021 at the school at 6:30PM. I ask that your child arrive at the school that evening no later than 6:15PM.  Dress for this concert is white top, black bottom and black shoes.
    • The chorus has been invited to perform The National Anthem at a Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins game on November 13, 2021 at 6:05PM. More details will follow as to the time and place we will all meet on that date.  At this time, the Penguins’ organization needs a very rough estimate of how many will be in attendance.  Please indicate below if your child will be participating, how many seats total you project you will need at this time, and if you wish to add-on the prepaid cost for a food voucher. You can change the amount of tickets/vouchers you need up to 14 days prior to the event.  I will again reach out as we near the event to confirm tickets/vouchers.  The Penguins’ organization will donate $4.00 of each ticket back to the school as a fundraiser for the chorus.  Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from the event, as has always been the custom.  Dress for this event will be white top and black bottoms. Comfortable shoes with rubber bottoms should be worn.  They do not need to be black, however, black is preferred. 


    As always, if you have any questions or concerns regarding any information in this correspondence, please do not hesitate to contact me at katsockc@hasdk12.org.


    Thank you again for your continued support of the DEMS Chorus!

    Miss Christine Katsock, DEMS Chorus Director
