Director Notes for January 2019
1. Area auditions are this SATURDAY! Encourage and send good thoughts to our students competing in the final round of All-State auditions!
2. Skate Night is MONDAY!
Anderson and Murchison choir members are invited to join us at Playland Skate Center from 6:30-8:30pm Monday, January 13 for a couple hours of skating and fun! Cost is $6 per person at the door. We’d love to see most of our choir students present to start building relationships with our main feeder program!
Hope to see you there!
3. Solo & Ensemble Contest:
Students must select, confirm, and pay entry fees by Monday, January 13!
This is a hard deadline. I can’t enter you late!
While students who take lessons should do this, the contest is open to students
who do not as well.
Entry fee = $10 per entry per person
Some families paid this already at Everything Night.
Competition is February 22 at McCallum H.S.
More details will be sent out later.
Students will also be responsible for paying an accompanist for competition.
We will confirm the amount and it will be due by Feb 7.
The current 6 weeks grading period (4th) will determine eligibility for Solo & Ensemble Contest.
5. Guys & Dolls:
Our school musical is being presented on January 23, 24, 25, and 26. Put at least one of these dates on your calendar to see this show!
6. Uniform problems:
If your student has any problems with their uniform: pants too short, seam has come out, dress is too short or too tight etc. Please send it to school with your student this week so that we have time to help fix it.
7. Madrigal & Chamber Choir – from now until after contest on March 7, we will rehearse with Chamber Choir during Zero hour on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 8:15am each week.
8. DATE CHANGE – Pre-UIL Concert – we have moved this concert to Monday, March 2. Please change your calendars.
9. Spring Trip
We have had a couple students who have had to drop from our trip. They are female. If we have any current female choir students who would like to buy out their spot, we can do that. We will need to know by Monday, January 13. We’ll then work with your family on how to pay for the spot. Total cost of the trip is $190.
