Choral Department Update May 2017
WRAPPING UP: Two weeks ago, Chamber Singers, Treble Choir, and Chorale performed their last concert of the year. Now, they are working on Final Exams and End of the Year Assessments. For their Final Exams, Chamber Singers are learning madrigals in small groups, Treble Choir is learning Italian art song solos, and Chorale is performing concert individually. Chamber Singers will perform for the last time at the WHS Graduation on Saturday, June 3rd.
UNIFORMS & MUSIC: Now that concerts have ended, students need to turn in their uniforms and music. Please have the uniforms dry-cleaned and turn them in ASAP. Students will be placed on the obligations list and, ultimately, charged for any class materials that are not returned.A Cappella Groups
