Vinland Choir

Sunday, October `13, 2019

We had a great week in choir for our first week and look forward to the start of week 2 tomorrow morning.  

Our initial focus is on vocalization, singing tone, and harmony through round singing.  Additionally, we started the song for our Veteran's Day Assembly last week and look to memorize and expand what we do with our performance each rehearsal.

Thanks in advance for getting your kids to each rehearsal on time.  Attendance is really important so the group can make continual improvement.  

Week 2, here we go!

Hello Vinland Choir Families,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 Choir season!  This is where I will post information regarding Vinland Choir, including if Choir needs to be canceled in the event that  I have to be gone, for instance, because of illness.

PERMISSION SLIPS
Choir is an extra-curricular event, so parent permission is required for student participation. Students can pick up an informational letter which includes a permission slip beginning Monday, September 30.  When your student brings home the permission slip, please read the informational letter and keep it for your reference.

CONCERTS
We will be working toward two performances: an evening concert at Vinland School on Wednesday, December 18 at 6:30pm ; and an assembly concert for students at Vinland on Friday, December 20, at 3:00pm.  Parents are welcome to come to either or both concerts.  Choir member attendance is required for both concerts.  Please put these dates on your calendar and make provision for your student to attend and participate in the concerts.

REHEARSALS
Vinland Choir will rehearse in the morning before school every Monday and Wednesday we have school from 8:25am until 9:10am.  Our first rehearsal will be Mon, Oct 7, and our last rehearsal will be Wed, Dec 18.  The Music Room at school will be our rehearsal site.  The Music Room will be open to students at 8:20.  Note that there are two dates when we will not be in school on normal rehearsal days: Wed, Oct 23, for conferences, and Mon, Nov. 11, for Veterans Day.  Please make every effort to have your students attend every rehearsal unless they are ill.  

CONCERT WEAR
The Vinland Choir concert uniform is navy blue on the bottom and white on the top.   These are school uniform colors, so I'm hoping most families have clothes in these colors.  If you do not, you can check the school uniform closet, or you might be able to borrow before you buy.  Girls may wear either slacks or skirts to comply with the concert uniform.  Thanks.
