Week of August 14th

Thank you for a strong start to the school year!  Both choirs are showing great potential.  Please visit your choir page for weekly plans.  I will not be here on Thursday and Friday, so please listen to your leadership team and follow the notes given to your sub.  Thank you for your help while I am away!

Smart Card and Entertainment Book Fundraiser:  The fundraiser will end on Monday, August 21st.  All classes meet that day, so please bring in money collected and/or all unsold Smart Cards and Entertainment Books.  I will be out on Thursday and Friday which is why I am extending the end date to Monday, August 21st.  The fundraiser continues this week, so please take advantage of the opportunity to get money into your account.

T-Shirt Fees:  Please bring in your T-Shirt fee of $17.00 by Tuesday, August 15th.  You may pay online as well.  Contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Snap-Raise Fundraiser:  This fundraiser is for the WCHS Choral Program.  We are in desperate need of REAL Choral Posture Chairs.  We have been using cafeteria chairs which are not only poor for posture, but are uncomfortable as well!  Matt Cooper from Snap-Raise will be here on August 23rd to help kick-off our successful fundraiser!!  We also need new choral acoustic shells and updated sound equipment.  If everyone participates, we should be all set for new chairs and hopefully new choral shells.  

Chamber Choir see calendar of events and your page for information regarding our performance on Saturday, August 26th.  This is a big deal for the group hosting us – let’s represent WCHS Choirs with pride!

MTVA Freshman Honors and Mid-State Choir Audition Prep Workshops

I will be holding MTVA Audition Prep Workshops every Tuesday and Thursday from 3:40 – 4:45 p.m.  Concert Choir members will be learning their audition piece in class, so attending the workshop from 3:40 – 4:00 will help prepare for sight-reading.  From 4:00 – 4:45, we will focus on Mid-State TTBB and SSAA audition materials, so Concert Choir members will not need to stay for that portion.

If I am not in choir class during the day – there will be no workshop after school.

Week of August 7th

We will continue to develop basic skills/technique while working through parts for our Fall Concert pieces.  Please go to your choir page to review plans for the week so you can better prepare for class.  Unified sound requires unified preparation!  You can do this!!  Email me at wilsoncentralchoirs@gmail.com or ask another choir member for the password if you have forgotten it.

Be sure to turn in the signed last page of your Handbook and either turn-in fundraising money to cover fees or bring in a check payable to WCHS.  Any questions or concerns, please see me.

Participate in the Smart Savings Card and Entertainment Book Fundraisers to get some money in your choir account for current and future choir expenses.

Put your headphones on and take a listen!

So proud to share the first full video released by June (juneofficial.com).  A past choir student of mine, Kyle Hogan, sings bass for June.  They have an incredible sound, Brennan is magical, and the rhythm section is exceptional! 🙂

Singing in choir can open doors to unexpected and incredible experiences well beyond high school and college.  Keep singing.  It can be life changing!

Looking forward to hearing all of your voices on Tuesday!
