Belles met today, Monday March 1 after school to continue practicing their songs. While the club is usually student-run, Mr. Cunningham, the student teacher, took over for most of today.

The members rehearsed “Candle on the Water” many times until they ran through it cleanly for the first time. This song will be featured in the Spring Concert on May 20. Additionally, the club practiced “On My Own” from Les Miserables today. This song will also be sung at the Spring Concert. They were able to practice “On My Own” for the first time while playing belles and singing at the same time.

Belles ended 30 minutes early today so that some of its members could go to rehearsal for the Spring Musical, “Man of La Mancha” which premieres this Friday, March 5.

Belles will be traveling to Rosa International Middle School next Friday, March 12 in order to encourage middle school students to join music clubs when they come to East.
