Dear Parents and Students:
I hope you have all enjoyed a restful long weekend. We are moving along quickly in all of our Choirs! We had great fun collaborating with the GHS A Cappella Choir in our Camo Gear as we MASHED the Mustangs last Friday night! This week we have several important events to get uniforms checked out and all required paperwork taken care of for the year. Please take note of the following:
Voice Lesson information was distributed in class and is posted on our website. Our teacher’s schedules are filling up fast. Please return the forms ASAP so that we can get you scheduled. We are excited to welcome Mr. John Wilkerson onto our staff. He comes to us with a wealth of experience in the Classical and Musical Theatre world. Please see our website under “staff” for more information. Our voice teachers will be present at Tuesday’s meeting for you to ask specific questions.
If you have not had the opportunity to do so, please subscirbe to our electronic calendar to keep up to date with all Panther Choir Events. NOTE - We have changed the calendar from last year - If you are subscribed to the old CHARMS Calendar this years events will not be there!

Tuesday, September 8 - NEW PARENT MEETING, 7pm
If you are new to the Panther Choir Program please join us for a meeting at 7pm in the auditorium where we will go over details of the Choir program, the handbook, and all other pertinent information. This meeting is required of new families so that we can inform you of all district / school information. It is ideal that both a parent and student attend the meeting if at all possible.
Saturday, September 12 - GET FIT DAY
All students in the Choir Program are required to stop by on Saturday. Please enter the rear of the building at the New Choir Room. A parent and student should attend so that we can collect all needed parent signatures / forms / fees and fit the student for a uniform. You can fill out all needed paperwork in advance to expedite the process on Saturday. All required forms and the checklist for the day are available on our website. Assigned times are below. Please make an effort to attend during your assigned time to reduce congestion for all parents; however, if you have a conflict that prevents you from attending during this time please come as you can between 9am and 3pm.

Concert Women (2nd Period) 10:30am-11:30am

Friday, September 11 - Men’s National Anthem Night
Our men were scheduled to sing the game and Pep Rally on Friday; however, it came to our attention late last week that there has not been a Pep Rally scheduled for Friday. Because we want our middle schools to have the opportunity to participate in the Pep Rally we are looking at rescheduling this to October 30. Information indicating either way will be sent on Tuesday (some conversations have to be had during business hours tomorrow).
My Fair Lady Auditions
We are excited to be working collaboratively with our Band and Theatre Departments on a production of My Fair Lady scheduled for January. Our initial auditions are done by video and are due this week. We hope that we have a wealth of choir students that want to be involved in this production as this ensures a quality musical performance! Please see our website for audition information and visit with Mr. Rinn and/or Mrs. Massey for help or questions.

5:30pm-6:45pm - Chamber Choir
