Hello GEB,
Hope everyone is having an amazing break! Below you will find the details for this week (01/03/18-01/06/18). Remember to always check for the most updated schedule.

Mandy Harvey Presentation 01/05/17 (all)
In a partnership with the Eisemann Center, Richardson High School will have the opportunity to enjoy a guest performance and lecture by Mandy Harvey on Friday, January 5. All fine arts students will be participating in this wonderful presentation and will be blocked for 1st and 2nd period. Students are to meet in the band hall at 8:50 AM; we will all head to the auditorium at 9:00 AM. Here is a brief bio about Ms. Harvey and her story:

Mandy Harvey is an award winning singer, songwriter and motivational speaker who just happens to have an invisible disability. A Vocal Music Education major at Colorado State University, Mandy lost her residual hearing in 2006-2007 at age eighteen due to a connective tissue disorder that affected her nerves and left the program. She pursued several career options, including education, but returned to music in 2008; her true passion could no longer be denied. She quickly became a regular performer at various venues and has released three albums thus far. Though her hearing loss is profound, her timing and pitch are perfect and her passion is tremendous. With support from friends, family and her faith, Mandy continues to find joy in music.
