WELCOME, NEW CHOIR MEMBERS!

 

Hello and Welcome to the Wilson Central Choral Program!  We are looking forward to meeting you.

Be sure to WRITE your choir class on the first two lines of the electives section on the course request form (along with the course number)!  It needs to be entered once for each semester.

Sopranos/Altos – Sign up for Concert Choir and Women’s Chorale! (you will just bump Lifetime Wellness to Sophomore year – a bunch of my 9th-grade girls did that this year!)

Tenors/Basses – Sign up for Concert Choir!  Before your first semester is finished, you can audition for Chamber Choir for your sophomore year or even the second semester of your freshman year if your participation, music skills, and preparation are outstanding.

Contact Mrs. Morin at wilsoncentralchoirs@gmail.com if you have any issues with adding choir to your schedule for next year.

 

Most choir members take choir every semester of their high school career and many graduate with honors and distinction.  The majority pursue other areas of study after high school but gain the benefits of dedication to a performing group when applying to college or for scholarships.

Many college and university music departments offer a scholarship for participation in choir, even for non-music majors!

Benefits of singing in Choir!

  • Studying music helps you succeed in other academic areas.

  • Do you love music? Why not enjoy it every day by singing in a choir?

  • Singing with people who like to sing creates a feeling of community.

  • The choir room becomes your second home – always welcome, always belong.

  • Singing in a choir builds confidence.

  • Do you enjoy singing with your friends? Choir builds lifelong friendships.

  • Performing in a choir concert brings a great sense of accomplishment – shared with friends.

  • Choir is not easy, but it is rewarding. Challenging music builds musicianship and opens the door to confidently participating in college and community choirs.

  • Colleges like to see a well-rounded education including choir participation.

  • Some college music programs offer ensemble participation scholarships to non-music majors.

  • Choir offers the opportunity to travel and perform. Performance trips are fun and give students elite experiences working with well-known conductors and/or perform in major venues in the United States.

  • Singing a cappella is challenging and fun! Create a small ensemble with your friends in choir.

  • Choir builds many life skills: leadership, teamwork, collaboration, confidence, dedication, responsibility, rising to a challenge, setting goals, practice and preparation, focus, interpersonal skills, and expressing emotion through singing.

  • Singing brings joy to your day!

  • Post-High School – you will discover many people who have also participated in a choir: bosses, co-workers, community members, neighbors, and friends.
