Assumption is hosting the 3A Solo and Ensemble Festival on Saturday, March 28. This event needs many volunteers to be successful, and the music department needs your help. This service hour opportunity is open to all students and we can offer service hours for your time.
We have opportunities on Friday after school for set up and all day on Saturday. Please let me know if you have questions or need help signing up.

Members of the Assumption Choir and Band enjoyed a trip to Kansas City at the end of March. The band had a clinic at Kansas City Community College, the choir had a clinic with renowned choral conductor, Charles Bruffy, and the choir sang for Mass at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. The students also visited the National WWI Museum, the American Jazz Museum, and enjoyed performances by the Kansas City Symphony and Chorus, as well as, the Manhattan Transfer and Take 6.
Assumption is hosting the Iowa High School Music Association 3A Solo and Ensemble Festival on Saturday, and we really need volunteers! Your time is eligible for service hours, and many of the jobs are as simple as sitting at a table following a schedule, or serving concessions, or taking admission money. Any time you are able to help out is appreciated. We also have set-up time on Friday and tear-down on Saturday, if you’d rather do that. Here is the link to sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f084fafac28aaf94-ihsma4 . If you have trouble signing up, just e-mail me and let me know what spot you want to volunteer for.
