THIS WEEK'S HOMEWORK: THE MODERN PERIOD This week's homework is the next installment of our Music History component. Pick up the handout in class on Monday and make sure you get the Classmarker assignment done before Thursday's quiz.
New homework policy: homework must be completed by one week after it is due. After that it will not be accepted. Entire classes that get homework done by the QUIZ day will automatically get 2 XCR points.

The Unsung Hero is someone who has selflessly gone above and beyond to help, inspire and be a positive example.
This week's unsung hero is Juan Angel Johnston-Chavez, who sings in Chamber Chorale. Juan Angel has a terrific work ethic and is an inspiration to the basses (and the rest of us)!
