  • Announcement of time changes

    To all Parents and Participants in the Harvard-Westlake Upper School Performing Arts Department:

                    As you know, each year our calendar of events is drawn up with the caveat –

    “All information is subject to change.”  Well, I’m sending this letter to announce three changes to the calendar in the upcoming months.           

    First, the upcoming Winter Play, “The Madwoman of Chaillot,” which will be performed on February 5, 6 and 7, will now begin at 8:00 pm on Friday, 7:00 pm on Saturday and 1:00 pm on Sunday.

    Second, the upcoming Chamber Music Concert in the Feldman-Horn Gallery and St. Saviour’s Chapel on February 12 and 13 will be at 7:30 on Friday, and 6:00 pm on Saturday.

    And thirdly, (and I hope finally) the Spring Choral “Cabaret,” scheduled for May 20 and 21,  will now take place on Friday, May 20 at 7:30 and on Sunday, May 22 at 6:00 pm.  There will be no performance on Saturday, May 21.

    Thank you for making note of these changes and for the generous time and support you and your children give to us.
