We are planning several exciting things for the 2017-2018 school year!  


There will be a meeting of the SHS Chorus Booster Club for interested parents on Tueday, September 19, 2017 at 7 p.m. in the chorus room!!

Select students are preparing auditions currently for NC Honors Chorus, the Mars Hill Choral Festival, and the Wingate 9-10 All-Carolina Honor Choir.  A few prospective music majors will be applying for the Young Professionals Symposium, which occurs in conjunction with the NC Music Educators National Conference In-Service Convention. Several students are also preparing for the  Gardner-Webb Choral Festival.

Chamber Choir will be joining forces with Burns, Crest, and Kings Mountain High Schools to present excerpts from 2 Masterworks: Handel's MESSIAH and Vivaldi's GLORIA.   These will be presented as part of the 26th Annual Choral All-County Chorus on Thursday, December 7, 2017.  (Note:  the date this year is in the fall, moved from its customary spring position)  The choruses from the county middle schools will also be performing holiday classics on the All-County Concert this year!!  This concert will be held in Brown Auditorium, Shelby High Campus.

The SHS Choruses (Beginning Chorus, Women's Chamber Choir and Chamber Choir) will present an evening of Carols on Friday, December 15 at the Cleveland County Arts Council.

The Piano students in 1st block will be presenting a recital in  January 19, 2018 to share what they will learn in the fall semester.  More details later.


In the spring, the Chamber Choirs will be attending Music Performance Assessment (aka "contest") in February/March , and all choirs will participate in our annual Spring Concert in May.  


The SHS and SMS Choirs and percussion students will present a performance of Caribbean music with the PanJive Steel Drum Band (from Hickory, NC) on April 17!!


It's going to be an exciting year!!
