WASHINGTON, DC CHOIR TOUR
BRING FORMS TO MRS. MASSEY BY SEPTEMBER 11th
We are excited to take the choir on tour to Washington, DC in April. We were recently notified that we were selected to do a guest performance at Washington National Cathedral as a prelude to the weekly evensong service on Sunday, April 29, 2017. As we are limited to a smaller number of performers because of space, not every student traveling to Washington, DC will be able to be a part of this concert (though all students will sing at other events). Due to the extra events scheduled for our program with the State and National Convention performances Chamber Choir will not be traveling to San Antonio for competition this year. This being said, we have decided to audition this year's chamber choir from students traveling to Washington, DC. We will rehearse on Monday evenings throughout the year to prepare the 30 minute concert to sing at Washington National Cathedral. Details regarding these auditions will be posted shortly. Information concerning the trip to Washington, DC is on our TOUR PAGE. Space is limited, please signup early! Parents interested in chaperoning should NOT sign up yet. Information regarding chaperones will be sent out soon.
There are only a few spaces left for private lessons during 2nd and 5th period.
It is the goal of the CHHS Panther Choir to provide exceptional learning experiences for every student enrolled in our program. One way in which we realize this goal is through the GCISD Supplementary Music Program. The Supplementary Music Program serves a two-fold purpose. First, it allows interested students to receive individualized musical training. Secondly, it improves the performance level of the individual student, positively impacting the organization in which the student participates. By choosing to participate in this Program, students will receive high quality, individualized instruction from degreed professionals through which they will develop an even greater understanding of healthy singing and performance habits. To learn more about our voice lesson program please visit our VOICE LESSON INFORMATION PAGE. Space is limited so we encourage you to enroll early.
