We hope that all of you have enjoyed a wonderful summer break and we are looking forward to starting the school year next week. We have been busy preparing and are excited about the opportunities and experiences the year will bring. If you are new to the Panther Choir we welcome you with open arms and look forward to meeting students and parents. You will receive this Panther Choir Update each week of the school year with important information. It will also be posted our choir website www.chhspantherchoir.org for your reference. Please let us know if we can be of any assistance to you and enjoy your last weekend of summer!
GET FIT DAY & WELCOME BREAKFAST
We are trying a new twist on our annual “Get Fit” Uniform and Paperwork processing day. In an effort to streamline the process for everyone and not demand excessive parent time we are combining the New Parent meeting and Get Fit Day. On Saturday, September 10 we will host a Choir Buddy Breakfast (our older students will attend with their choir buddies) for our new students and parents at 9am in the Panther Den. After the breakfast there will be a new parent / student meeting at 10am followed by uniform fittings and choir registration. More details will be provided soon!
2017 CHOIR TRIP - WINTER PARK, CO
In March the Panther Choirs will take our annual Choir Tour / Trip. This year we will be engaging in competition during our trip. In order to represent our program well in competition we are hoping for high participation. In preparing the trip we have worked to make it as affordable as possible so that the maximum number of students can participate. Details concerning the trip are now available on our website HERE. Registration opens Monday for Chorale students and space will be limited (other choirs will be allowed to register soon - see trip information)
Many students have been in lessons throughout the summer working on technique and preparing for the All-State process. For those returning to their teacher this Fall, all of our voice teachers have made contact and scheduled lessons for next week. All students in Voice Lessons need to complete a new enrollment form for the year. For those wishing to start voice this year please visit our VOICE LESSON INFORMATION page on our website and lean about our three excellent, degreed, professional teachers on campus. GCISD offers substantially discounted private lessons through our supplementary music program.
