Georgia Tech gig THIS FRIDAY, September 21st!

SPARK kids have been invited to sing "The Star Spangled Banner" at a GEORGIA TECH Women's Volleyball game vs. Miami on Friday, September 21st! The game begins at 7:00pm, and call time is 6:00pm at O'Keefe Gym (map below). Friday Traffic is awful and this weekend is Music Midtown, so please plan accordingly and BE ON TIME. If you are heading from SPARK just go west on Ponce, take a Left on Juniper, then right on NORTH AVE, cross I-75 and take the first right onto Techwood Dr. Techwood will dead end right by the O’Keefe Gym. Please try to avoid 10th St. if possible.

  • Attire will be:
Ø  Music@SPARK green polo (if you haven’t ordered yet please have your child wear hunter green shirt OR SPARK logo wear)
Ø  Black pants/skirts/shorts and black shoes.

Further Details:
All student singers will get in for free. Family and friends of the performers will get in for the rate of $4.  The team plays at the Georgia Tech O’Keefe Gym which is located by 6th Street on the Georgia Tech campus. After students sing please come to their singing area to retrieve them to sit with you. Ms. Turgeon cannot stay throughout the game to monitor students because she will be going to see the Foo Fighters. Dave Grohl can't wait to see her. J

Any 4th or 5th graders who would like to sing MUST pass a word quiz with Ms. Turgeon, and anthem singers should plan to rehearse at the Advanced Chorus rehearsal on Friday, November 21st from 3:00-4:30pm in the Music Room. 

Finally, Ms. Turgeon needs a volunteer to videotape the kids’ singing with her camera. Please let her know if you’re willing! We need a good video to send in to audition for the Braves and/or Gladiators (hockey).
