The purpose of this post is to determine if there is interest in a high school “concert level” choir in the South Austin area. After reading the information below, comment whether or not your students are interested.
The choir is an auditioned, high school SATB choir. Only 40 (10 sopranos, 10 altos, 10 tenors, and 10 basses) students will be accepted. If there’s enough interest, numbers may be expanded. Music will consist of contest-level Sacred and Secular Choral Literature (no pop/rock) but could expand over time to other genres depending on student interest. Due to competitive level choral literature, this choir will be the equivalent to a Concert Level Choir in public education.
Enrollment in this course/choir is absolutely free due to the sponsorship of Essentials in Writing! Depending on interest, students will be required to participate in online singing modules and bimonthly rehearsals.
Activities throughout the school year will include team building and two concerts. As the choir grows, there will opportunities to engage in choir tours and competitions.
I hold a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, a Master of Education Administration as a Principal, Music Teaching Certificate, and I am currently finishing a Master’s Degree in Music (Choral Conducting). I am also the owner, author, and Chief Executive Officer at Essentials in Writing, a video based homeschool writing curriculum company.
I am interested in creating a group of parents and students who would like to discuss this exciting opportunity. Please share with your friends, and post interest below. After determining interest levels, you will be invited to join a Closed Facebook Group to discuss/plan details.
