Panther Choir Update 3/6/16
Congratulations to the CHHS Chamber Choir who traveled to San Antonio this weekend to compete in the American Classics Chamber & Madrigal Choir Festival. 42 ensembles competed for a panel of collegiate adjudicators. The CHHS Chamber Choir received superior ratings from all judges and was one of 13 choirs awarded the “Performance of Distinction” award to recognize the most outstanding performances of the festival. Pictured above is the choir in a workshop with Dr. Betsy Weber from the University of Houston following our performance.
End of Grading Period
This week ends the 3rd grading period at CHHS. Please remember to check with teachers and be certain all assignments are complete before Spring Break, especially if you are traveling to Europe with us this week. The grade earned this 9-weeks will be the grade that determines eligibility for UIL Contest in April. If you have turned in choir assignments late please know that I am in the process of grading everything and updating Skyward. I may have to do some grading during the trip to get caught up, but I assure you it will be done. If you have missing recorded assignments from class or after-school rehearsal makeups please make sure they are turned in by Friday.
We are excited to begin our tour on Wednesday! Please remember that students are not excused from 1st period. Luggage should be dropped in the main choir room before school on Wednesday. After 1st period students should report to the choir room to meet their chaperone group and prepare for departure. We will depart for DFW at approximately 10:45am. Please let us know if you have any specific questions regarding the trip. Please do not forget our final rehearsal, Monday, 4-5:30pm.
When we return from Spring Break we will have guest clinician Jo Scurlock-Dillard, former president of the Texas Music Educator’s Association and an extraordinary choral director with us for two days, March 23-24 for in class and after-school rehearsals. March 31 is our GCISD UIL District assessment (after-school into evening at CHHS). Please stay tuned for a detailed schedule of events for each ensemble.
