Panther Choir Newsletter 10/4
We continue to be impressed with the dedication and tenacity of our Panther Choir students as we navigate this school year. We are excited to announce our first live performance of the year, Sing-Out that will feature our jazz choirs and many soloists from our program. Please review the information below concerning Choir Forms and Fees and other upcoming opportunities for our students.
- Choir Forms -
Thank you for your patience as we determined what forms and fees are needed for this year and our process for collecting them during hybrid learning. The CHHS Choir fee will remain at $55 for this school year. The choir fee helps to cover the cost of supplies such as our online learning packets, uniform pieces, and other activities of the program. Please note, that the district will not be collecting the Extra-Curricular Pay-to-Play fees that have traditionally been collected in Skyward. Please see the Registration Form below which will allow you to pay choir fees, upload and/or complete the required district forms, and purchase optional Booster memberships and choir merchandise.
*All forms are due by October 16th*
- Sing-Out -
The Panther Choirs are proud to present our first live performance of the year featuring our Ovation and Di Voce Jazz Choirs and soloists from our program. Sing-Out 2020 will take place at the Palace Theatre in downtown Grapevine. In order to meet state, county, and district safety procedures, the show will be ticketed using "seat buffering." You may purchase groups of tickets together for families or groups coming to the show together. When these seats are purchased, the system will automatically block out 2 seats to the left, right, in front, and behind the purchased seats in order to maintain proper social distancing in the venue.
All guests will be required to wear masks covering the mouth and nose for the duration of the performance per current Tarrant County and GCISD guidelines.
*Tickets will be sold for $5.00 each*
Tickets are now available at https://chhschoir.ludus.com

If you are involved in one of our jazz ensembles, we have decided to hold a few after school rehearsals in order to have everyone together (online learners and in-person learners). We need this time to practice for the upcoming show. Below is the schedule for both Di Voce and Ovation. It is crucial that you make it to as many of the rehearsals as you can. If you are unable to make it to them please communicate that with us ahead of time.
