All interested students should return the sign-up form to Mrs. Passini before attending rehearsal. Missed the email with the form? See below!
Dear 4th and 5th grade Students and Parents:
An exciting opportunity awaits your child in the 2016-2017 school year. The District 41 elementary music staff will once again organize school-based choruses open to all 4th and 5th grade students who enjoy singing and want to make a commitment to an extra-curricular group. Participation in this program would be of great benefit to your child, as he/she would have an additional opportunity to learn vocal technique, harmonization and note reading skills. Besides the musical value, participation in chorus is also an effective way of teaching commitment and responsibility to a group. In the past, our performances have included the District Autumn Concert, Hadley Spring Concert, an appearance at Belmont Village, and also at a Chicago Slaughter arena football game. This year, in addition to some of these exciting performances, we will be holding several social events and performing the National Anthem a Chicago Steel Hockey Game as the District 41 4th and 5th Grade Combined Chorus!
Rehearsals will be in each school’s music room on Mondays from 3:35-4:10. Our first rehearsal will be Monday, August 29. The first performance of the year will be an Autumn Concert at Hadley Middle School, the date is TBD.
In the past we have had large choruses comprised of eager, enthusiastic singers. There is no fee required for participation in this group. Chorus is a fun learning experience for students. We hope your child will decide to join our program this year. Please discuss this opportunity together. Should your child be interested in joining, please fill out the bottom portion of this letter and return it to your building music teacher before or during our first rehearsal. We look forward to hearing from you.
