2018 2019 Preliminary Chamber Choir Roster

Thank you to those who auditioned and re-auditioned over the past couple weeks.  I am impressed with the experienced choral singers we are adding to Chamber Choir!  I am looking forward to summer break, but am also so excited to get started in August!  Check the website on occasion this summer for updates.  Since there are still pending auditions, I posted the roster on the Chamber Choir page.  If you do not know the password, just email me at wilsoncentralchoirs@gmail.com and I will email it to you.

Both choirs will focus on preparing Graduation pieces, listen to and follow along with possible pieces for next year, sight-read, and review for final exam.

Concert on Tuesday!!  Be in the choir room by 6:30 p.m., in uniform and ready to sing.  See choir page for medals, pins, etc. info.  We will sing through The Lord Bless You And Keep You and Omnia Sol.

Looking forward to a wonderful concert!

 

Week of April 16th

This week, we will focus on bringing our concert music to life. Parts should be confident so we can spend time refining the composer’s intention through attention to diction, expression, uniform vowels, phrasing, constant tone and, most importantly, the joy of singing!

We are also creating Superlative categories on Monday and voting on Wednesday.

CONCERT NEXT WEEK – Tuesday, April 24th Choir members should be in the choir room at 6:30 p.m. sharp, in uniform and ready to sing.  Medals and pins will be distributed as well  – all choir members will wear them during concert.  Should be a fun (and emotional) night!
