Dear Parents, singers and Guardians,
I’m sure you’ve heard our exciting news. We have been asked to perform at the Kids of NYU Spring Fling, on Wednesday night, April 30th, 7:30pm, in the Grand ballroom of the Plaza Hotel. This evening is a fundraiser for the opening of the new Sala Institute for Child and Family Centered Care., a part of NYU Medical Center.
We expect 400 people to be attending the dinner and our chorus will sing at the opening of the event. This is a very important honor, not only because we will be representing NYU, but also because our chorus was selected over several other performing groups.
We will be singing promptly at 7:30pm and be finished by 7:45pm. I am requesting that all singers be at the Centennial room (adjacent to the Grand Ballroom) by 6:30pm (this is also the room where parents will be waiting and watching the performance). This will give us time for a quick run through and procuring places on the risers. The address of the Plaza Hotel is:
Fifth Avenue at Central Park South (58th street)
New York City
New York, United States
Since this is a formal affair for the guests, we would like our singers to also look very special. Please wear a long or short sleeve solid white top, and dark slacks or skirts. We will give each singer a purple (the color of NYU) flower to wear on his or her left shoulder. The hosts will provide beverages and cookies for our singers.
I know this is a busy time for all of you, especially because our own concert will be the next week, Tuesday May 6th, and I thank you sincerely for your cooperation. These young people have come a long way musically over the past year and we are all very proud of them.
