Parade of Lights Cancelled, But Please Join Us For Caroling On Pearl Street Mall Please read carefully!
I want to first start off by saying how much we have appreciated your enthusiasm for all of our FAM opportunities this year. As a school, we’ve been able to tackle so many amazing things in the past year! The 2019 Denver Parade of Lights, at first glance, seemed right in line with our mission to provide amazing opportunities for our singers. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, we did not fully understand how difficult it was going to be to acquire the resources needed to construct and pull a float.
The hours spent trying to meet the requirements of the parade have been unrelenting. While we are disappointed to cancel, we wanted to let you all know that no rock went unturned and our budget continued to become more flexible as we attempted to solve all our issues. In the end, we couldn’t. There was simply a misunderstanding on our end as to how difficult this would be to put together in the time that we had. It became impossible to pull this off professionally and without risking the safety of our students. Our sincerest apologies.
That being said, we do have an alternative! And we would like to invite not only you, but any of your family members, including the little ones, friends, neighbors, and so on, to join us. We will be caroling on Pearl Street Mall in Boulder instead — lights and all! 🙂
NO REHEARSAL THIS MONDAY. As you know, these are standard Christmas Carols and aside from any harmony part you choose to sing, chances are you have either heard, or been singing these songs for years, so a rehearsal really isn’t necessary. There were some people who expressed they would be nervous on tv without a rehearsal, which is the only reason we put one together. To carol on the mall, we don’t feel a rehearsal is needed. You can sing whichever part you like: You can just sing the melody, or you can choose a harmony part from the rehearsal tracks we provided.
WHERE: We will meet at the corner of 15th & Pearl St ( There’s a parking garage nearby that we believe will be open until 8 or 9pm, or there is street parking )
WHEN: Saturday December 7th
AFTER PARTY: We will meet up at BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse at 1690 28th St, Boulder, CO 80301 for some holiday social time!
Thanks everyone! Diana will be there with our Banner if anyone wants to help carry the banner as well. If you will be joining us for caroling on Pearl Street, please reply to this and let us know. We look forward to seeing you in your lights and singing beautifully on the mall!
