imageCrusader Cafe is Back - November 3 - Sign-Up to Perform!

Hey Parents,

Crusader Café is back for another year. For those of you who do not know, Crusader Café is an opportunity for a boy to showcase his musical talents to his peers and others during lunchtime. We will be dining and entertaining everyone from the Fellowship Hall.

Below are the dates for the Crusader Café:

  • Friday, November 3
  • Friday, February 2
  • Friday, April 26

There are 2 requirements your son must meet in order to play at Crusader Café.

  1. He must be taking or has taken lessons. (If he is not taking or has taken lessons, he must audition for Mrs. Southerland)
  2. He must be practicing regularly.

“Practice isn’t the thing you do once you’re good. It’s the thing you do that makes you good.”

Malcolm Gladwell
