WELCOME BACK! Choir/String/VJ/CHAMBER CHOIR INFO Mar 29-April 1st

Hello everyone and welcome back after what I hope was a restful spring break!

 

A few changes coming back into this week as I am preparing for Chamber Choir auditions and putting away everything after our musical. SO PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!!!!
Speaking of Freaky Friday – wow, what a ride!! Firstly thank you to every student involved in this production, it was a ridiculously fun and talented group that I got to work with this year. We overcame MANY challenges and got through the other side with an incredible show – I am SO INCREDIBLY PROUD OF YOU and thankful for each day we got to work on this fantastic show together and Grads I will miss you immensely <3 Thanks for an amazing show, an amazing musical year and for SO MANY LAUGHS – I needed it! Thank you to everyone that bought tickets to our livestream and donated to our program, you kept us afloat this year with your generosity and support and gave our kids an audience. Thank you to our team of teacher/admin supporters that came out to watch each night our community is truly amazing and I feel very lucky to work at Reynolds!

Musical theatre students I am working on putting together a best of the best Freaky Friday video. I’ll let you know when I have it ready for you!:) ANY STUDENTS CAST, CREW, BAND, ANYONE that can come after school the next few days Monday-Wednesday THIS WEEK and help take the set down, we would be grateful!! We have to take down props and the set – so more people means the faster we can get our theatre back into a workable state:) We have small crew this year so we need lots of extra help please:)

We have 3 weeks left in term 3, so finish strong and know we are working towards a final concert spectacular for the end of the year! CHOIR AND STRINGS students there will be some movement of schedules soon and I am adding Junior VJ to the roster as well (SUPER EXCITED TO START THIS- I WILL MEET WITH YOU THIS WEEK SO WE CAN GO OVER SCHEDULE AND SOME MUSIC). Stay tuned!!

CHAMBER CHOIR AUDITION INFO POSTED BELOW (under Tuesday), we will meet on Tuesday to discuss THE ENTIRE CHORAL SCHEDULE ( I need to know what will work and what my numbers are)!! Remember Chamber Choir is a fast moving ensemble with required practice time each week and high level choral music – it isn’t for everyone, but if you want to work hard and make great music, this is the place for you! Concert Choir will also have fantastic music to work on, so either choir will be great to sing in this term. And yes, we will still be able to work on the music from before break – it isn’t going away!

If you want to audition for Chamber Choir (if you were in it previously you do not need to re-audition) you will need to perform a chromatic scale and whole tone scale as well as a small section of Mille Regretz in your voice part (SATor B). SING M 1-15 SOPRANOS and m. 1-17 for Altos, Tenors and Basses.
