Concert Men – Practice Materials

Concert Men,

If you forgot your Sourwood Mountain lyric sheet at school, or if you’ve already left in on a beach or at a pool during Spring Break, please download the file HERE so that you can practice over the break.   Remember:  Pre-UIL is Tuesday, March 25.  That is our second day back after the break.  We need to be memorized on all three of our pieces before that performance.   So, please do your part in helping us have a successful concert!

Have an awesome break!!  . . .   But don’t forget to look at this lyric sheet.

I will have our recordings from class posted here as soon as possible so that you can sing along.

Thanks for your effort!!

- Mr. Kirkwood
