Panther Choir Newsletter 2/10/18
Thank you to all of the parents and students who volunteered and made the GCISD Middle School UIL Festival a success on Friday. We hosted fourteen GCISD choirs and the Panther Chorale Performed for our future CHHS and CHS singers. We are thrilled to see the talent and great teaching going on at our GCISD Middle Schools and excited for the future of choral music in GCISD.
Please note the upcoming deadline for All-State Scholarships!
The Panther Choir Booster Club is proud to support the students in our program through over $5000 in scholarships offered each year in the following categories: Graduating Seniors (deadline: March 20) and All-state choir camp (deadline: February 20). Please reference the scholarship page HERE for specific information about requirements.
Arena scheduling is now open to allow students to choose courses for next school year. We hope that each of you will continue as part of our Panther Choir Family. We strive to provide a curriculum that supports continuous growth in our students both personally and musically. Each year provides different opportunities for our students. The 2018-2019 school year is an international tour year and our students will have the opportunity to perform in multiple European venues. An official announcement of this trip will come shortly and registration will begin in May. The chance to travel and perform is one of the hallmark experiences of a students time in the CHHS choir and we hope that you will consider joining us.
The initial course selection for Choir simply requires that you choose Choir and any auxiliary classes that you are interested in taking. In addition to our traditional choir classes students may choose to concurrently enroll in our Jazz Choirs or our Applied Music Class (a specialty course focusing on individual vocal development, All-State, Vocal Auditions, and College audition Preparation). Should you encounter any questions during this process feel free to contact me. Choir auditions and official placement will occur later during the spring semester.
