MIP Weekly Update: Post-Champs!

Good evening everyone! I hope that everyone was able to get some rest on Sunday and enjoyed the eclipse today. First, I wanted to once again congratulate the students for their best weekend of the season as well as their best performance of the season. Words cannot truly describe how proud the staff was of their efforts. It was truly a well deserved end to Mars Indoor Percussion’s 20th anniversary. Also, congratulations to our scholarship winners as well. It was the icing on the cake to an already fantastic weekend! Finally, please see below what will be one of our final updates of the season. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Have a great first week off!

RSVP to attend it MUST be done by April 9. Please submit payment as a misc. expense through Charms or send a check with your student; the amount paid will indicate the number attending.
