Welcome to 2018 - 2019 Music Season:

Cabaret 2018 was AWESOME, as always.
The performers were brilliant, of course. The production was stunning, obviously. Now we have to wait until May 11th. 2019. Mark the date and start planning your outfit!
Last year Cabaret raised a record breaking $13,400.00 for the AMA Scholarship and Bursary fund! A huge thank you to everyone who volunteered and to everyone who attended to make this our most successful Cabaret ever.
We will need some new faces to ensure that the tradition of Cabaret continues for years to come and there has never been a better time to become involved as we have a strong committee of volunteers returning next year. Join our Cabaret 2019 team by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org We will help you find the right fit and no experience is necessary.
Here's some important AMA news:
The Argyle Music Association had a general meeting meeting on May 27th 2018 to approve the articles of a new constitution. The motion to approve was carried so now you have a bit of light reading to do: Have a look here:
Here's a thing about people who sing with Mrs. Roberts. Its time for the annual 'visitation'. Check the dates and times here: https://www.argylemusic.ca/upcoming-argyle-music-events/
Much much more to come!
A bunch of parents have stepped up for roles with the Argyle Music Association and to shadow positions...THANK You!
There are still unfilled positions and ways to help on the AMA board, and on the 2019 Cabaret committee. Do you wish you had an excuse to get out of the house more? Want to have somewhere fun to go once your are out of the house? Send an email to email@example.com
AMA Fundraising for Student travel accounts continues...thanks to SPUD and Two Rivers Meats. This Fundraising program is a way for kids to earn money for future tours, instead of spending yours. See the Fundraising page for details.
