The Grand Finale of Events!
Congratulations to the band and choirs on outstanding performances last week in their spring concerts. We had great crowds for two evenings of great music. Thanks to all who came out to support the music department last week.
As we near the end of the year there are a few more important things on the horizon before the final curtain closes on the 2012-2013 school year in fine arts.
Mark your calendars:
(HONORS ADVANCED CHOIR)
MAY 20 AND 21
All people auditioning must be at both audition days
and plan to stay until 5:30. If we finish early, you are
free to go, but not until the "all-clear" has
been given each day.
Applications will be available in the D/R office and online.
You can also find them on our FA webpage
below under "files".
HONORS ADVANCED ART
Any student who would like to be considered for the Honors Advanced Art class receiving honors credit must fill out an application and be approved. Space is limited. Applications are available in the D/R office and also here on our website. All applicants must return their application to Mrs. Welch.
The Caldwell Concert Choir and Caldwell Singers will perform for the 2013 Graduation ceremonies on Saturday, May 25. This is a mandatory performance. Work schedules must be arranged around graduation.
FRIDAY, MAY 24
12:15-1:30 at Lawndale
This is a study day for 9th-11th graders and there is no school. All choir members are expected to attend the mandatory rehearsal that afternoon. Since there is no school that day for Rhetoric students, you will need to provide your own transportation to Lawndale. Please make arrangements to get to Lawndale at 12:15 and we will be finished by 1:30. Please let Mrs. Twigg know of any issues.
SATURDAY, MAY 25
The ceremony will begin at 10:00 a.m. and is usually over by noon. All choir students are to report by 9:30 a.m. for warm up in the Lawndale Chapel. This will all be rehearsed and shown to you at the Friday afternoon rehearsal.

On that note...
As we enter the spring season of drama and music performances, I wanted to bring you a few reminders of how we as a community can support our students by showing them our utmost respect during their performances. Let's face it. We all think we are respectful when it comes to being an audience member. I think if we were to pay close attention to our own behavior we would be surprised. I have noticed a decline in audience etiquette all sorts of venues and events. Here are some reminders from the National Association for Music Education that would help us all upgrade our experience as an audience member at any event.

Fine Arts Department Helps to Honor Grandparents
The following students attended the
Solo and Ensemble portion of the ACSI Music Festival along with our choirs. This portion of the day allows students to sing individually and be adjudicated by an experienced private vocal instructor. Each student receives a recording of their performance that includes comments from the judge. This is valuable feedback for the aspiring soloist and vocal student. This year we had fifteen students in Dialectic and Rhetoric participate in this portion of the festival and it was the first year for our Dialectic students to participate. Congratulations to the following students:
(from left to right)
Josh Thompson and Will Scarbrough,
duet - Superior
Taylor Belk, solo - Superior
Stacey Romig, solo - Excellent
Madeleine Harris and Jonathan Bell,

John Robinson, solo - Superior
