Vinland Choir

I want to update and inform you about what is happening with Choir.

Miss Meyers is accompanying us again this year on piano and will be rehearsing with us in the mornings.  We will do six numbers during our performances, two of which will be with her piano accompaniment. 

Also, we will do two unaccompanied pieces: a 4-part round and a spiritual with partner harmony called Good News.  Additionally, we will perform The Little Drummer Boy with guitar accompaniment and Proud of Our Veterans which we did at the Veteran's Day Assembly.  This piece has a CD accompaniment, so you can see that we are learning to perform in several contexts.  

 We have just NINE rehearsals until our concert on Wed, Dec. 13.  It is very important that your child comes to rehearsals.  Please only miss under emergency circumstances.  If your child misses rehearsal when we learn things like phrasing nuance or when we practice a difficult ending section, their absence affects the entire group.  Thanks  for your attention in this matter.

Choir is in full swing!  We have 50 students signed up, however, we have only had about 35 at each rehearsal.   All students who signed up for Choir are in; there is no waiting list this year.  I know how hard it is to get up and get your kids going early in the morning, and I want to thank those parents who have gotten your kids to each rehearsal so far.

Some parents are wondering about concert attire for choir members.  At the concert on Wednesday, December 13, students should wear white on the top and navy on the bottom.   However, at the Veteran's Day Assembly performance on November 7, and at the school assembly performance on December 15, students should wear their normal school clothes because these concerts are during the school day.  

I'm really looking forward to this choir season.  Your kids are doing well, and even the 3rd graders are bringing good skills to rehearsal.  

Thanks,
Mr Orando
