Week of November 12th

Chamber Choir:  We will sing The Star-Spangled Banner for the Veteran’s Day Program.  Wear black choir shirt and jeans (no holes).  I need everyone present!

Both Choirs:  Check your choir page for daily plans.  I will be gone on Tuesday for MTVA Mid-State and Freshman Honor Choir.  Please be productive and work toward confident memorization of your music.  Follow substitute directions. 

Auditions for feature performance at the December Concert are this Thursday/Friday, Nov. 15/16.  Please sign up for a time on my office door.  

Bravo!

Thank you, Chamber Choir, for a strong performance tonight. The Veteran’s Day Concert is a favorite for me and you allowed me to relax and enjoy the evening. I appreciate that!

Please remember we are performing The Star-Spangled Banner for the school Veteran’s Day Program on Monday (during 3rd block). I need EVERYONE present on Monday. At this point, one student is excused from that performance. Choir shirt, jeans (no holes). If you need a choir shirt, see if you can borrow one or see me tomorrow.

Week of November 5th

Both Choirs:  Check your choir page for daily plans and memorization dates.  Make preparation and memorization a priority as we approach Thanksgiving break.  We need to get rid of the music in order to focus on the musicality of each piece.

Do whatever you need to do to be fully prepared.  Let’s raise the bar for the December concert.  In order to do that, everyone needs to be giving their best effort.  Both choirs have great potential for strong concert performances.

Aca-Flockas:  Practice on your own.  You are sounding beautiful!  We need to set memorization dates – discuss on Wednesday.

Chamber Choir – Veteran’s Day Concert on Thursday.  See previous post for more info.

MTVA Honor Choir Participants:  Study your music this week!  Performance files have been provided via email or on our MTVA page.  Be sure you are prepared.  Please review email sent to parents regarding schedule and reminders.

Week of October 29th

Check your choir page for daily plans.  Both choirs will be working toward memorization, so be sure to spend some time practicing outside of class.

With all the focus on musical details, don’t forget to just sing freely and naturally!  We will be focusing on balance, blend, and listening which will bring our pieces to the next level of preparation.

Looking forward to a great week of singing!
