Lip Sync Battle Time!

Lip Sync Battle Guidelines

Many of our chorus students have opted to perform in this year’s lip sync battle. The performances will take place during class. Students have received rehearsal time, so they are not required to rehearse outside of class. The performance schedule is as follows:

Tuesday, May 14: 7th grade

Wednesday, May 15: 8th grade

Thursday, May 16: 6th grade

All chorus members (grades 6-8) will vote on the top performances from each class. These votes will determine the ultimate Lip Sync Battle champion!

A Letter to 8th Grade Chorus Students, Parents, and Guardians

Below is an invitation from Hillgrove’s choral director, Mrs. Benjamin. Please note that an RSVP is requested:

Dear student and family,

IRELAND, here we come!

Congratulations! Your child has been invited to travel on an educational tour through Ireland next spring break!

We are partnering with EF tours, traveling on a custom designed tour specifically for our choral students here at Hillgrove. We will be experiencing both countryside and city sidewalk in the beautiful country, visiting places like Dublin, Galway, Killarney and Cork. We’ll be able to see the green rolling hills, history and music and folklore come alive.

We will be hosting an interest meeting on Thursday March 21st at 6:30pm in the Hillgrove Choral Room. I hope you will come and learn more. There is limited space on the trip, and spaces fill extremely fast and on a first come first served basis. Please RSVP at https://rsvp.eftours.com/atthdt6

Sarah E. Benjamin, M.M.

Choral Director

Hillgrove High School
