What's New

Murray Newsletter - September 8, 2010


Thirty days hath September,
April, June and November.
February has twenty-eight alone,
Yet all the rest have thirty-one,
Except in Leap Year, that's the time -
When February's Days are twenty-nine.

 



WELCOME TO A NEW BEGINNING!

The Conestoga Cougar Marching Band performed at the Nebraska State Fair on August 28, 2010, under the direction of Conestoga Music Director, Dwight Rose.

The members, consisting of 8 -12th graders, have been practicing their marching skills for a while and proved what hard work is made of.

Also performing along with the band, is the newly-formed "Cougar Corps" flag team.  The girls started practicing during the summer, and gave up a lot of their time to prepare for this occasion.

(Reminder - The Conestoga Music Department continues to collect Box Tops for Education, so please cut the little pink rectangles from packages and send them to the high school.  Thank you!)

DON'T FORGET!

GRANDPARENTS' DAY

is this

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 12

Grandma and Grandpa, tell me a story

and snuggle me with your love.

When I'm in your arms, the world seems small

and we're blessed by the heavens above.

Sightreading Workshop


A Sightreading Workshop is scheduled for Saturday, October 2, 2010,
from 1 PM - 3 PM in the Old Avoca Schoolhouse, in picturesque Avoca,
Nebraska.

This will be a wonderful opportunity  to play with other music students, and
sightread music that you've never seen before, and don't have to ever see again.

During the workshop, musicians will  be discussing how to negotiate new
compositions with minimum stress, and maximum music.  The beauty of
this workshop is that all you have to do is show up!

There is no preparation necessary, although pre-registration
is required, and there is a $20.00 fee.

For more information, call 402-275-3221,
or e-mail
debby@greenblattandseay.com.

Greenblatt & Seay proudly announce

FOURTEENTH ANNUAL SCHOOLHOUSE FIDDLING BEE


This historical, hysterical event will take place on Sunday, October 10, at 2:30 PM,
in the auditorium of the Old Avoca, Nebraska Schoolhouse.

In the Open Division, fiddlers will play a hoedown, a waltz, and a tune of choice.  There will also be other divisions of competition available for the adventurous fiddlers, including a Singing Fiddler's Contest, a Twin Fiddler's Contest, a Fee-Fi-Faux Fiddler's Contest (fiddle tunes played on any instrument other than a fiddle), and a Hocus-Pocus Contest (cross-tuning, sound effects, dancing, etc.), which will give fiddlers an opportunity to play tunes that are usually not allowed in any other contest.
The prizes for the winners in the Open Division are $100 for 1st place, $50 for 2nd place, and $25 for 3rd place.  Prizes will also be awarded for 1st place in the other contests.

Registration for contestants starts at 1:30 PM the day of the FIDDLING BEE.

Admission is $5.00 for adults and $1.00 for children.  Fiddlers and their back-ups are admitted for free.

For more information, call 402-275-3221, log on to www.greenblattandseay.com
