Panther Choir Newsletter 2/12
We are moving fast through the beginning of the spring semester and we hope that everyone is hanging in there. We know that things are challenging right now, but we are so proud of the work that our singers are putting in each and everyday. Please take the time to view these on our Google Calendar along with more information below regarding these upcoming events. Click HERE for a link to our Major Events Calendar.
- Changes to GCISD Remote Learner Policies -
GCISD has recently modified district policy to allow remote learners to attend fine arts performance classes to prepare for spring performances and competitions while still attending their remaining courses remotely. We are currently developing procedures to safely allow our remote students into choir classes and will communicate early next week. We anticipate being able to allow them on campus by the end of next week.
- CHHS Solo and Ensemble Festival -
On February 23rd we will be hosting our annual Solo and Ensemble Festival after school here on campus. There will be three judges (Carol Wilson from the University of North Texas, Tammy Patterson retired choral director and fine arts director, and Jessica Nápoles from the University of North Texas) who will not only give feedback and score their performances, but who will also spend time working individually with our singers. This is an amazing opportunity for our students to work with a real professional in the vocal field. There will be scholarship opportunities for those who compete and place in the finalist category. We hope that you will help us encourage your students to participate in this beneficial and worthwhile experience.
- Pop Show -
We are excited to announce that we will be performing our very first Pop Show here at CHHS. There will of course be more information to come, but for now here are some details about our plans for the show. We will be following the same Covid safety protocol that we did for our Winter Concert last semester. There will be three different performances at CHHS in order to accomodate more audience members. Those dates are March 3rd, 4th, and 5th.
