Panther Choir 2019 Summer Updates
We hope that you are enjoying your summer break! We are hard at work preparing for another terrific year in the Panther Choirs. While there will be much information to come in the upcoming weeks, there is some preliminary information below we'd like you to have for your planning.
- Class Schedules -
We will continue working to take care of class scheduling issues in the coming weeks as staff begins to return to campus at CHHS. If you have specific issues that you have not already contacted us about please do that via email so we have documentation and can help you. It will be a few weeks before all of these issues can be solved, but please trust that we are working on it.
- GCISD Summer All-State Workshop -
If you have an interest in auditioning for Region Choir or simply want to become a better musician and meet some of your fellow singers, please join us for the GCISD Summer Workshop August 6-7, 9am-12pm at CHHS. This workshop is open to all choral students grade 9-12 in GCISD and is free of charge. This is meant to both help you become a better musician and give you a jump start on Region music if you'd like to engage in that audition process. Help us plan for an accurate number of students by registering below.
- Voice Lessons -
Are you interested in enrolling in voice lessons this school year and you haven’t taken previously at CHHS? Please fill out the form below to help us gauge interest and make sure we have ample voice teachers hired for the year (this is not a commitment to lessons, only an interest form). There are scholarships available for students who need them! If you took last year at CHHS and have been in contact with your teacher there is no need to fill this out.
- 2019-2020 Chamber Choir -
Our Chamber Choir is an auditioned extracurricular ensemble that typically meets once per week (historically this has been on Monday 5:30-7pm but could move) to prepare advanced choral music for different performances throughout the year. The group usually travels to competition in San Antonio in late February / Early March. It is a fun group with unique opportunities for our students.
We have received a few invitations for performances this year that I am considering using the Chamber Choir for but I need to gauge student interest and make some decisions. Tentatively the calendar would consist of:
Weekly rehearsals, September-March
Singing on Fall/Winter Concerts
Invitational December Concert with the Fort Worth Chorale
February - Pre-Contest Concert with other local schools
March 6-7 - San Antonio Trip/Concerts/Competition
Auditions are open to any student in the CHHS Choir program. Can you please consider the year ahead and fill out the following survey concerning your interest so that I can do some additional planning. Please complete this by August 7.
- Spring Tour 2020 - New York City-
Do you want to travel to New York but didn’t get signed up in the spring. Please send an email to Mr. Rinn - there is limited availability on the trip. You can view more detailed information concerning the trip on our TOUR PAGE. The trip is opened to all CHHS Choir Students, 9-12th grade.
