This week in Chorus….

6th Grade–  Our sixth grade chorus students have been working on our new curriculum “Choir Karate!”  Many have earned two belts already and are working for their test this Friday for the next two belts.  They are preparing music and learning about reading music from the score and singing in harmonies.  They have also learned some great Hawaiian and solfege songs and are working on American folk tunes now.   ***THERE IS NOT A CONCERT IN OCTOBER FOR SIXTH GRADE CHORUS***  there was a concert date noted in the handbook, but that date was not on the school calendar and I would rather us continue to work on our choral skills and WOW you at the Christmas Concert on December 6th at 7pm. Mark that one on your calendars.

7th Grade – We are working hard this week memorizing our songs for our Multicultural concert on October 9 at 7pm.   We sight read every day to make us better musicians and we work in class on our music manuscript skills so we can read music with fluency.  Seventh Graders need a formal uniform and that money was due Sept 21.  If you have not turned in your form and money, please get that in ASAP!  We want to have all the uniforms in by the Christmas Concert on December 11.  Your student will need their White Durham Shirt and black pants for the October Concert.  If you have lost your shirt or it does not fit, please wear a white polo shirt, or a white shirt with a collar.
