Dear Choir Parents,
Due to today's school closing and the extreme weather and road conditions, we are not able to obtain a school bus for this evenings field trip to Severance Hall. Unfortunately the tickets for the concert are not able to be rescheduled or refunded.
On the upside, I still have the tickets and the event itself is still taking place. Students may still attend the concert, but will need to make arrangements for transportation to and from the event. Students are NOT to drive themselves or their peers to the concert, as it causes too much liability for young drivers. Parents ARE able to provide transportation for the concert. I know this isn't ideal, but it provides an opportunity for students to still attend this great event. I am providing a list of students that are signed up to attend, so that folks can get in touch with each other to make arrangements if so desired.
A couple of options for concert transportation might be that parents share rides with one family driving down and another providing the return trip after the concert. If time allowed, parents could drop students at Severance Hall, do dinner in the area, for example on Coventry, Little Italy, or University Circle, and then still be in the area to pick them up after the concert. There are also several chaperones that were planning on attend that might be willing to drive students as well. The chances are also very likely that I will have additional tickets that can be used, if you wish to see the concert, depending on how many people are able to come down for the concert. I very much understand this is less than ideal.
The concert starts at 7:30 PM at Severance Hall. The address for the venue is 11011 Euclid Ave., Cleveland, in University Circle. There is a parking garage at the rear of the hall and usually street parking as well.
I will be at Severance with tickets starting at around 7:00 PM. If you or your student would like to attend meet me in the lower level of Severance by the box office and I will give you tickets. E-mail me if you plan to attend so I know who to look out for prior to the concert. Please have your student bring their permission slip with them to Severance if they have not already turned it in. Thank you.
Please make the best decision for your household. No pressure from my end. It will be a great evening for those that are able to attend.
Please accept my sincerest apologies for the inconvenience of the day.
