December Choir Information
Spring Choir Auditions are this week - students are auditioning in my office during class recording themselves on an iPad. They are doing well. So far I have had about 60 students audition with about 30-40 more to audition before the week is out. These students auditioning will be placed into two mixed choirs, a boys choir, and a girls choir if they are selected to participate based on their audition process. Some students will even get the opportunity to have choir twice a day which is a great experience. A big thanks to our administrators and guidance counselor for allowing such great opportunities and putting in long hours to make schedules work. Ask your student how their audition went.

MIXED CHOIR! You will be Happy Happy Happy! to know that I received the new Agnus Dei Sheet Music during 7th Period today and ALL practice files for all three parts are up and running under class files in the "Mixed Choir" classroom page. WOO HOO!!! We will be done with it in NO TIME!
Parents - Please encourage your student to practice. Practicing for choir is just like homework and needs to be done on a regular basis. Just 10-15 minutes a day is plenty. We have 9 class periods before we head off for our ratings at the KMEA festival at WKU. These next few weeks need a lot of focus and dedication for us to receive the ratings we are working toward!
Saturday March 2nd
all practice files are temporarily unavailable
dropbox temporarily suspended access due to high traffic.
Glad y'all are practicing!
when you click you'll see this....I'll find a new way to post them. Stay tuned
It's Friday afternoon and all Practice Files are updated
so that everyone can work ahead this weekend.
Great job today working individually in class with the ipads.
Imagine if everyone fixed 1 thing today in their music that means as a whole group over 100 things were fixed (made better). Wooohooo!
Mixed Choir - you will LOVE your last file that I added for Sing We and Chant It
Girls Choir - I added two new files for Jordan's Angels
Show Choir - the more you practice the better we do, the more we get to do choreography for our other pieces.
Boys Choir - Youre doing great keep it up and work ahead so we can finish our piece next week.
