Whats happening in the chorus class this week?

All classes are working on their music for their spring concerts and preparing a group performance.  For group performances students can decided to perform an approved song of their choice a cappella or as a music video.   

Concert dates are May 3rd for 8th grade and May 7th for 6th and 7th grade and Show Choir.  Show Choir will also perform at Rising 6th grade night on May 8th. 

 

Reminder for students going to Disney:  There is a mandatory parent meeting on April 24th at 6:30 in the theater.  Students must attend and sit with their parent

 

What is going on in chorus

7th and 8th grade have worked so hard and received a lot of great and very helpful feedback after their performance evaluations.  We are now getting ready to begin music for the Spring concert.

6th grade has been working on operas and learning about improvisation.  They are also back at the pianos for a little while.  We will begin their spring music very soon too.

Volunteers

If there are a few parents that would like to volunteer to help with a little housekeeping in the chorus room, I would love to talk to you.

 

Email me and let me know when you are available to help out.

Summer Camps

Here is a little information about a summer camp I found out about this week. This one is at Campbell High School.

https://way2playsports.com/way2perform/

I also have a flyer in classroom about summer camps at the Mablehouse in Austell.

I am not connected to any of these camps but I am always willing to help students find one if they are interested.   Let me know if you have questions

8th grade music suggestion

If you are interested in being a part of the music suggestion team, let Mrs. Clark know that you are staying after school on Tuesday or Thursday  (or both days) this week.

This group of available students will help develop the list of songs for the 8th grade classes to listen to in order for songs to be determined for the spring concert.    Basically they are not picking the songs they are just helping make the list go from “all the songs in the world” to “here is what we can sing”

All students need to be picked up no later than 6:00
