Utah Opera/Utah Symphony Performances

Music students and enthusiasts: Utah Opera/Utah Symphony season is here, and we are purchasing tickets next week! Utah Opera has amazingly made the opera tickets FREE to students this year, so we can make that available to you for $20 (paying only for the bus) for FOUR opera performances! Symphony package is $40 for the year (which includes four concerts and the bus ride each time — but NOTE: NO opera is included this year with this package). Adult chaperones will pay $40 for the opera and $100 for the symphony, since as adults they are not offered the same price as the students. (These prices also include the price of the bus.) We won’t know how many chaperones can go with us until we have a student count, so send notice of your interest to Mrs. Vincent. Deadline to pay at the front office is this Wednesday, September 13. Students may pick up the information letter and form from Mrs. Vincent, or email Mrs. Vincent at janice.vincent@maeserprep.org.

Debate

Debate got off to a great start this week, and we’re so pleased with so much middle school involvement. But it’s not too late to join! Email jonathan.harmon@maeserprep.org for more information.

There’s still time to join the Viking Winterim! The deadline to sign up is Thursday, September 21. For details, contact Ms. Gerber: natalie.gerber@maeserprep.org.

Sports
