TECH INTERVIEWS

Monday, 9/12 & Wednesday, 9/14

To be considered for Tech, you need to sign-up outside of the Choir Room for an interview time-slot. Interviews will take place on Monday, 9/12, and Wednesday, 9/14. When interview slots are full, Mr. McGraw will not be adding more. Only approx. 6 applicants will be chosen for Tech this year. Those chosen will be required to be at most FDC rehearsals, so it is important that your schedule allows for that!
I look forward to interviewing you!

Choir Room today!
