If students are unable to attend the rehearsal, I must have a note from parents at least one week prior to the rehearsal in order to be excused.

Extra Credit Opportunity for all students on Monday, January 29th at 7:00 p.m., the PYLUSD All Star Studio Orchestra and Voices will be performing with PYLUSD alum Alex Hahn at a special fundraising event. Students can start out their third quarter grades with 10 points of extra credit if they attend and find Mrs. Neumayr for a selfie at the end of the performance.

This is the debut performance of the PYLUSD All Star Studio Orchestra and Voices, a 40-60 piece orchestra paired with over 30 voices. The performance will feature artist Alex Hahn and the music from his “Emerging” album. “Emerging” consists of all original music influenced by jazz, classical, and cinema with an emphasis on strong, singable melodies. Proceeds from the concert will be gifted to each high school in the Placentia Yorba Linda Unified School District.

Tickets: $10
Available for purchase from Eric Samson, Peter Perez, Jim Hahn, Brad Davis, and Bincins Garcia.
