Both choirs will listen to last week’s concert performance and complete a performance evaluation. We will spend the rest of the week learning foundational music theory. There will be a foundational theory test next week.
We will also begin learning new music for the December concert.
Take pride in your performance! All your hard work was recognized last night by an appreciative audience. We will listen to and evaluate concert recordings on Monday.
Thank you to West Wilson MS Choir for joining us! They were perfect choir students as audience members and especially singing “This Is Me” with our combined choirs. What a joy it was to hear that song sung so beautifully!
Both Choirs: Do whatever you need to do in order to bring your very best to rehearsals and concert performance this week. We are ONE Choir, United in Harmony! The biggest challenge for performance ensembles is always equal preparation among all members. Do your best. Go to choir page for daily plans.
Looking forward to a wonderful concert on Thursday! Ask leadership officers questions before asking Mrs. Morin on Thursday during class and before the concert. Everyone: Please help make our choir friends from West Wilson MS feel welcome and appreciated!
