Weekly HS Chorus Update 9/15

Good Afternoon HS Chorus Families,
It has been a great week. Some of our ensembles have already learned an entire selection. I have been especially impressed with Women’s Ensemble this week as they have begun to learn sight reading! Women’s Chambers work this week on their “How Do I Love Thee” has been incredible. There are some VERY difficult parts and they are learning them with ease. Men’s finished their first selection. I can’t wait to touch it up and make it a masterpiece. Chamber is well on their way to being prepared for their various upcoming performances.
Chorus Fee’s:  The $15 payment to NWSACAB is due ASAP so that we can order our new music theory software for every student! I am so excited to share this information with everyone but it is NOT a cheap undertaking.
NWSACAB: Our first meeting of the year was on September 12, 2017 in the HS chorus room (E-201) at 5:15. It was a great meeting and I enjoyed that so many new faces were with us. Please consider coming to our next meeting on October 10. We are always happy to see new people!
Uniforms: Next week all students who do not already have a uniform will be sized and sent home with the uniform paperwork. Please let me know if you would like to use a payment plan rather than a flat payment.
Lolipops: NWSA Mixed Chamber has been selected to perform in the inaugural Lolipops performance of the year featuring music from Harry Potter! If you would like to purchase tickets the link is below.
Charms Statements: Please give us until October 1 to update your charms statement. With the influx of activity at the opening of the year, it takes a few weeks to straighten everything out. There will be a statement sent out monthly at this time.
Mixed Chamber and HC Auditions: Permission slips are due ASAP! If you have managed to lose yours, it is located under forms on Charms!
