Concert Choir

End of Year Project

We are choosing songs today (Friday) and will begin practicing on Monday.

Singing Dates: All seniors will need to sing on Wednesday May 25th as it is their last day.
Other students may begin on the 25th, and we will finish June 2nd.

Monday May 23 - Practice
Tuesday May 24 - Practice
Wednesday May 25 - Seniors Perform
Tuesday May 31 - Practice - Wilson Gone
Thursday June 2 - Perform
Friday June 3 - Free Day, last day of School

In your emails you told me what songs you would like to sing. I will correlate how many wish to do solos and which are in groups.

Each student will have a block of time between 5-8 minutes in which to perform. If you are lip synching, emphasis will be on choreography and emotion. If you are singing, the focus is on the musical product, but you will also need to be a performer.

If you are lip synching, you will need to provide your own recording, I will provide the microphone.
