Middle School All-Region Choir

Middle School  All Region Choir Information- 2019

 

Dear Parents,

  

On Saturday, October 26, 2019, the 7th and 8th Grade choir students have the opportunity to audition for the Middle School  All-Region Treble Choir and Tenor/Bass Choir. The contest will be held at Sulphur Springs Middle School in Sulphur Spring, Texas.

 

This is a contest in which the students will sing parts of 3 prepared songs for a panel of 5 judges.  The students are behind a curtain and are not seen by the judges.

They compete against other students in our region.   30 students are chosen from each Sop. 1, Sop. 2, and Alto parts to create  the Treble Choir (total of 90 in the choir) and 22 students are chosen from each tenor and bass part to make up the Tenor/Bass Choir (total of 44 in the choir.)

 

 On Saturday, November 9, the chosen students will participate in a Clinic/Concert at Mt. Pleasant High School.  After a full day of rehearsal, the choirs will perform at 5:00 p.m.

 

Whether the students advance to the All- Region choir or just audition, this experience is very valuable.  It builds confidence and increases musicianship.

 

I would like to encourage your child to participate in this event.

 

We will meet in the choir room at 7:15 a.m. the morning of Saturday, October 26, and travel to Sulphur Springs for competition.   Depending upon the contest running smoothly, we will return hopefully around 7:30 p.m. or earlier. We will stop for dinner at Chic-fil-a in Sulphur Springs.

 

Please sign the attached permission slip and return by Friday, August 30.

 

Thank you!

Please call if you have questions!

Yes, _____________________________________ will audition for the Middle  School All-Region Choir, and may travel on the bus to Sulphur Springs Middle School in Sulphur Springs, Texas on Saturday, October 26, 2019. 

 

I realize that the school pays the $15.00 entry fee and I will reimburse the school if for any reason my child cannot attend.
