Virtual Recital February 2021

New process for today!

Below are the performers and music - however the order will be pulled out of a container. 

Also, a change in secret pals. Your secret pal will be the performer after you. The last performer's secret pal will be the first performer. At the end of the recital, state the name of the performer with your/parent's email or cell number in the chat. Look for your secret pal gift recipient's contact information and save it. Send a message and let them know whether you'll be sending a gift electronically or by mail.
