With just 16 days to departure, (yay! and wow!) it goes without saying that excitement is high, the office is humming with all things Scotland, and every email you receive from us is important, high priority reading. Thank you for paying attention to every detail--we know this is a busy time for all. :)
This was not on our original tour calendar, but we hope as many singers and chaperones as possible can make it as it will be a wonderful opportunity to kick-off our Big Rehearsal Week with some Family Group bonding over bowling (and pizza)!

The Details
Monday, July 18 | 6:15pm - 8pm | Middleton Sport Bowl | 6815 University Ave

Singers can be dropped off at 6:15pm and picked up at 8pm. We will have staff and volunteers directing them to our meeting place inside the venue. Parents are welcome to stay to socialize but should know in advance that this event is specifically designed for tour participants and their chaperones.

This event is sponsored by Middleton Sport Bowl: a huge thank you to the Hellenbrand family for your thoughtful generosity and hospitality!

Please RSVP by Friday, July 15 using this link:
Our Big Week of Rehearsals
