Performance Opportunities

Spring Concert

The CDE concludes the year with a Spring Concert.  The concert is designed on a voluntary basis and all levels are represented.  Fees will be associated with participation.  Details are outlined in January. Please refer to the CDE calendar for Spring Concert performance dates. Students are required to attend all Spring Concert rehearsals, including the dress rehearsal.  There are no excused absences except for serious illness or injury.  In the event of illness or injury, a doctor's note is required for the student to return to rehearsal.  No more than two missed rehearsals are allowed due to illness or injury for the duration of scheduled Spring Concert rehearsals.  Please understand that any missed rehearsal disrupts the entire class performing.  Refunds will not be issued upon dismissal from the Spring Concert due to missed rehearsals.  This policy is in effect to stay fair to the students who are committed, and the instructors who strive to make the performance an enjoyable experience. The Spring Concert packet will be available in spring 2019. *Spring Concert will be held at the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center at City Springs.
