PYO Ceilidh, 1 February 2020

Dear Parents/ Members of Perth Youth Orchestra
 
Welcome to the New Year 2020.
 
The first social fundraising event of this year is coming up soon:
PYO Ceilidh on 1st February (Saturday) from 7 till 11pm at St. Matthew’s Hall with the band Can-You-Reel-It.
 
The tickets are on sale now during Monday’s rehearsals at NICC and cost £5 per child, £10 per adult and £20 for a family of up to 5.
 
We are going to have a Raffle Prize Draw on the evening and hence would like to ask for any donations (like a bottle of wine or a box of chocolate) to be handed over to any Member of the Committee on Monday night.
 
This event is always great fun so please do come and support your orchestra.
 
Thank you so much.
Kind regards
 
Gosia Stanton
Honorary PYO Secretary

Percussion Lessons on Tuesday 17th December

This is just a reminder to all pupils at Aberfeldy and Pitlochry that Ms Paterson is out of school tomorrow, so there will be no lessons. This is due to the Christmas concert at Perth Grammar school.

Message from PYO Committee

Dear Parents/Members of PYO

This week PYO are performing in the Childline Concert (5th December) which is closing the autumn/winter season.  All the best for this first performance of the “new” orchestra.
 
Before we all break for a well deserved holiday I would like to mention two important events next year:  

  • PYO Ceilidh on 1st February at St. Matthew’s Hall with the band Can-You-Reel-It, which is always a great fun and an occasion to socialise for all the Members and Parents; 
  • Prosecco Tea Party on 28th March, a repeat of the last year’s fabulous fundraiser – a lovely treat for your special guests and friends.
 Please mark them in your new 2020 calendars.
 
On behalf of the PYO Committee I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year with lots of beautiful music.
 
Kind regards
Gosia Stanton
PYO Honorary Secretary

We welcome new parents/carers and returning parents/carers to come along and find out how we support the music groups and concerts.

All offers of help in setting up, serving or clearing away are greatly appreciated so if you can't manage the meeting on Thursday 21 November but would still like to be part of the team on 6 December please contact Anne on theburrows.family@btinternet.com
