Girls who love to sing in choir may sign up for Vocal Music 1 (Concert Choir first semester) AND Vocal Music 2 (Women’s Chorale second semester). Be sure to follow up with your guidance counselor a couple weeks before school starts to assure you are registered for both. Women’s Chorale is made up of 9th-12th grade girls, so the level of music is advanced and the opportunity for growth is great! I currently have TEN 9th grade girls who continued with Women’s Chorale second semester. It is much better to get it on their schedule during registration rather than adding/changing mid-year.
Boys should sign up for vocal music each semester to be sure it is on their schedule. HOWEVER, an audition is required for second semester since it is Chamber Choir. Participation and preparation during first semester concert choir will make a major impression regarding ability to move to Chamber Choir second semester. If interested, the auditionee would need to demonstrate strong skills during first semester and pass the audition in order to keep second semester Chamber Choir on the class schedule. Taking Chamber Choir second semester would present an outstanding opportunity to sing alongside and learn from my strongest male singers!
IN ORDER TO SING ALL YEAR, VOCAL MUSIC HAS TO BE ENTERED TWICE UNDER ELECTIVES.
Be sure to at least register for Vocal Music 1 Concert Choir – first semester! This has been such a great group – they are an instant family from day one. Such a wonderful way to begin a high school career.
