Panther Choir Newsletter 2/25
We hope all of our choir families are doing all right after the craziness of last week. If you our your singer need anything from us, please do not hesitate to reach out.
We are excited for our upcoming Pop Show next week and our accompanying food truck nights as well. Below is a lot of information about the Pop Show, so please take the time to read and view our Google Calendar. Click HERE for a link to our Major Events Calendar.
- CHHS Solo and Ensemble Festival -
We have rescheduled our Solo and Ensemble Festival to Thursday, March 11. 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.

Our singers are performing with our middle school students on Thursday, March 4th during the school day. Our students are all excused from 1st period and 5th period that day. We need our students to meet in the auditorium at 8:40 am in jeans and their red choir shirt.
- Nighttime Performances -
Call time for both of our performances will be 6:00 pm. If you are planning on eating at the food truck, you need to make sure you give yourself enough time to meet in the auditorium by 6:00 pm. We will be providing your Pop Show shirts for you during our after-school rehearsals. Your concert attire is your Pop Show shirt, BLUE jeans WITH NO holes, and tennis shoes.
