Great Pre-Assessment Concert Last Week!

Bravo to all of our Choral Ensembles on excellent performances at the Pre-Assessment Concert on Wednesday!

Professional concert recordings and photographs will soon be available to you on our website.

A Special Thanks to all volunteers who helped our concert run successfully!

We could not have done that without the help of many of the dedicated parents from not only Camerata and Bella Voce that were responsible for providing volunteers but also from other ensembles. Your service is greatly appreciated! 

Advanced Choirs Back from the Spring Trip!

Congratulations to the Advanced Choirs students on marvelous performances at Carnegie Hall last night (Sunday, 3/17)!

If you are not riding the bus, you need to be at T.C. Williams during the assigned arrival time. It is essential that you are on time because the entire schedule runs in 20-minute intervals.


Please be sure to check your uniforms and make sure they fit!  If any swaps need to be made, this should happen now.  If your child needs a uniform item, please let us know immediately.

It’s all part of the grade! The rubric for our SOL includes professionalism, and attire is a sub category of this area.
