  1. Our daughter is in the Chorus at the Jazz Festival, and then heading directly to the GIV Winter Weekend. Given the Friday 7:00 performance, she’d be arriving at the winter weekend late, which they usually don’t allow. Do you know the order of the groups for the performance yet? That would be helpful to know when discussing the problem with the GIV folks. Thanks!

  2. Has the order of the groups for the Spring Festival been determined yet? Hoping to see my daughter’s middle school performance but will not be there til closer to 8. Thanks!
