Join the Northern Arizona University Chamber Orchestra in its annual Spring Classics concert, at 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 11, in Ashurst Hall. Conducted by graduate student Desmond Siu, the concert features Haydn’s Symphony No. 45 “Farewell,” Vaughan Williams’ “Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis,” and Ponce's “Concerto del Sur” for guitar and orchestra, with Andrew Manka, soloist. Manka, a guitar performance major at NAU, was a winner in the 2018 School of Music Concerto Competition. The NAU Chamber Orchestra is a small ensemble, in comparison to the NAU Symphony. It is especially suited to intimate settings, such as Ashurst Hall, and includes approximately 40 musicians, both students and professionals. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for seniors, NAU faculty and staff. Students and youth are free. Tickets are at the event, the Central Ticket Office in the University Union and at nau.edu/cto or by calling 523-5661.
FUSD kindergarten open house today
Flagstaff Unified School District elementary schools are hosting rescheduled kindergarten open house and registration events at all FUSD elementary schools for incoming kindergarten students and their families today from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Students entering kindergarten in summer 2018 must turn five years of age before Sept. 1. Families should bring proof of birth date, home address and immunization records with them to the event.
The open house will give parents an opportunity to visit the school and classrooms as well as to meet kindergarten teachers. This pre-registration also gives the district a good estimate of total kindergarten enrollment for the upcoming school year to more accurately plan staffing needs and space availability to meet boundary exception requests.
Parents who plan to submit a boundary exception to attend another FUSD school should complete the registration materials and attend the open house at their school of choice.
Parents who are uncertain of the appropriate school attendance area can call the FUSD Transportation Department at 527-2305 or use the online “School Locator” atwww.fusd1.org.
