Chamber Choir Members, Mark Your Calendar

We have a performance scheduled for Saturday, August 26th.  Please keep the morning available on this date!  I need ALL Chamber members present in order to present a strong performance.  We have been invited to sing for the Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Corporation Annual Meeting at Embassy Suites in Murfreesboro.  This is a wonderful opportunity!  I do not have a departure time from WCHS yet, but plan on approximately 7:30 a.m. and we will return to WCHS by noon.  Transportation will be provided.
We will not be wearing concert uniforms – just choir polos/t-shirts and jeans (no holes!) or khakis.  You will have an opportunity to order a choir t-shirt the first week of school.
Review your part for The Star-Spangled Banner (posted on the Chamber Choir page).  We will discuss performance pieces the first week of school.  Music won’t need to be memorized for this performance.

Possible Repertoire and Reminder about MTVA Auditions

Check out your choir page to listen to music possibilities for 2017-2018.

For those interested in auditioning for MTVA Honor Choir, the auditions will sneak up on you!  Especially since we have a two week break just before auditions October 19-21 .  Take the time to visit the 2017 2018 MTVA Auditions Page to download your part file and performance example for the SATB and TTBB or SSAA piece in order to internalize your part well in advance.  Repetition is extremely important to feel comfortable at the audition.

SENIORS: Remember, if you did not participate in the Ryman event or Freshman Honor Choir/Mid-State or received a Superior rating at Solo/Ensemble, you need to participate in Mid-State Honor Choir or receive a Superior rating at Solo/Ensemble (May 5, same day as prom) AND have 7 semesters of choir in order to wear a pink cord at graduation.

Let me know if you have any questions and see you soon!

Graduation Performance Details!

Saturday, May 27th.  Load bus at 12:45 p.m. (WCHS Grand Hallway exit), depart at 1:00 p.m.  Graduation will be at the MTSU Murphy Center.  We will load the bus directly after the ceremony and return to WCHS.  We should return no later than 6:30 p.m.

I need all Chamber members present along with as many Women’s Chorale members as possible! Graduation is by far our largest audience of the year – let’s make this day even more special by presenting a quality performance. 

Dress code:  PLEASE follow my simple dress code!  Ladies:  Shoulders covered – can be cap-sleeve or longer, watch skirt length, dress nicely. If wearing pants – no jeans or leggings – only dress pants. Dress shoes do not have to be closed-toe…toes okay!  🙂  Men:  Dress pants, button-up shirt with tie, nice shoes.

VOICE CLASS for Skinny Block 2017-2018!

I am happy to announce I will be offering a voice class next year during skinny block.  Originally, it did not show up on the course options sent out yesterday, but that has been fixed.  The class will include a master class setting so individual instruction can take place as well.  All students will have the option to perform one of their pieces at a spring recital (hopefully, off-site).

We will spend some time preparing for MTVA auditions in August and September followed by learning a variety of literature including classical, contemporary a cappella and Broadway!  At the end of the year, you will have a repertoire of music ready for any type of audition including college music scholarship, college choir, musicals and advanced a cappella groups.

SO EXCITED to dig in to this awesome opportunity to share my passion for solo literature, a cappella and Broadway with you!

Sign up today!!  Deadline May 26. Click on link below.
