What’s going on in Chorus

6th grade is taking a break from traditional chorus class and learning about musicals.  We are currently watching West Side Story and then begin a “make it a musical” project in the next weeks.   After the Winter break we will focus on Improvisation and Opera for part of class and continue reading music and playing pianos for the other part of class.

7th and 8th grade chorus classes are hard at work preparing for Large Group Performance Evaluation in March.  They will perform 2 songs and sight read for a panel of judges that will give our group a rating.  So far, we are sounding great and I have very high hopes for these awesome singers.

Disney trip update:  Students going on the trip need to sign up for room, park group and shirt sizes at Curriculum Night Tuesday February 6th.  Come see us in the music wing.

Looking for Donations

I would love to have a few donations of Band-Aids,  Hand Sanitizer, Scent-Free Lotion.  If you would like to bring in something, I would reward  your generosity.

Welcome Back

After the review of expectations and procedures this week, I am expecting this to be a nice smooth sailing semester.

Lots of plans for this semester including:

  • Large Group Performance Evaluation for 7th and 8th grade classes in March
  • Spring concerts for all grades in May
  • 6th grade will learn about operas and musicals in January and February
  • All classes will focus on learning more about reading music at their skill level, making music videos and Sing Offs

Let’s GO!!!!!!!
