Both Choirs – Please go to your choir page for daily plans.  We will continue to refine our choral festival performance pieces.  I will distribute field trip and class forms this week.

Please be prepared to perform for the following mandatory performances.  Arrange transportation in advance, if necessary.  These dates have been on the calendar for months.  Be sure you have communicated the performances to family, coaches and employers.

Thursday, March 1st – MTVA Choral Adjudication Festival – Mandatory performance.  Arrive at school in uniform, bring a change of clothes for the end of 4th period and 5th period, if desired. We board the bus in front of the school at 8:30 a.m. – be on time!  After our performances at First United Methodist Church in Murfreesboro, we will grab a quick fast food lunch before returning to WCHS by 1:30 p.m.

Tuesday, March 6th – Wilson County All-Sing at Lebanon High School.  This event features performances from all the high school choirs in Wilson County with a final mass choir performance of Praise His Holy Name.  Both Women’s Chorale and Chamber Choir will be participating.  Arrive at Lebanon HS in uniform at 5:00 p.m. for mandatory rehearsal.  Concert is a ticketed event (don’t have ticket price at this time).  Of course, all choir members are free.  PLEASE be sure transportation to and from this event is arranged in advance.

On March 19th, we will be hosting Maryville College Choirs during 4th period and a portion of 5th.  They will perform for us, talk about participating in choir and college life.  We will hopefully perform a piece for them as well.  Should be fun!  Women’s Chorale members, you need to have your 4th period teacher sign the absence form (I will distribute) in order to attend.
