These pages will contain of some of the music we will 'read' for the first few rehearsals to decide if we want to purchase, practice, prepare and perform.
Please do keep in mind the following:
we will have all grades 7-12 represented in choir!
we will have all levels of singing ability represented!
we want 'everyone' to be enjoying choir and to be giving their top efforts in rehearsing AND performing!
we will be doing more than the 'usual' teaching - gotta start learning some more things!
we will be doing 'deeper' grading this year. If you get an 'A', you will have earned it and if anyone doesn't get an A, then they will not have downgraded the honor of receiving an 'A'.. Actually, an honest B and C is not a 'bad' grade, anyway.
the musical is yet to be determined until we see 1) who is in choir; 2) who is in sports; 3) how 7th period will affect our rehearsals.
