Choral Department Update May 2017


Choral Ensembles

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

A CAPPELLA NIGHT: Thank you to everyone who attended and helped out with A Cappella Night. This year’s concert was our best yet and we are already thinking ahead to next year’s concert!

AUDITIONS: Auditions for next year are currently in process. We had over 75 students audition this year for She Major and Voices of Steel. Results will be posted by Monday, June 12th on the www.whschoral.com website.

This Is Why I Teach Music

Not because I expect you to major in music,

not because I expect you to play or sing all your life,

not so you can relax,

not so you can have fun.

But

So you will be human.

So you will recognize beauty.

So you will be closer to an infinite beyond this world.

So you will have something to cling to.

So you will have more love,

more compassion,

more gentleness,

more good...

In short, more life.

Of what value will it be to make a prosperous living

unless you know how to live?
