We are very pleased that you have decided to participate in our school choir this year. This exciting group combines students from Grade 5-8 from Jack MacKenzie school.
We look forward to making some wonderful music under the guidance of Ms Little,
Mme Cross, and Mrs.Hinz.
- Repertoire and Concerts
This group will be singing music from both the secular and sacred genres. We work towards several performances including the Rotary Carol Festival and participation in our school Christmas concert. We may do caroling as well and plan on doing so at several Senior residences as well as a mall. We usually wrap up the season with a pizza and movie party.
- Concert Dress
Students who participate in this group are asked to wear black pants or skirt with a long sleeved white shirt or blouse and black shoes for performances.
- Rehearsals and Attendance
We have included a rehearsal schedule on the reverse side of this note. We have very few rehearsals and a lot to accomplish. We would appreciate your support in encouraging your child to attend each and every rehearsal time. Absences MUST be discussed with one of the staff members involved in the choir. If your child misses three rehearsals without letting one of the coordinators know, they will be removed from the group. The choir will not be meeting after the New Year.
Singing together builds community. Participation in this group will give your child the opportunity to develop their talents and make new friends while having a great time.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact either school and speak to one of the teachers involved. Thank you.
Yours in music,
Ms Little Mme Cross Mrs. Hinz
