2018-2019 Select Chorus will hold auditions from September 5-14.
Auditions can be scheduled with Mrs. Frederick as soon as school starts, either in person or by email!
Rehearsals are every Monday and Wednesday morning from 7:45-8:30 AM. This chorus is an opportunity for students interested in more challenging material in a small-group setting. Middle school students not in chorus are welcome to participate if they can commit to rehearsals and concerts.
The FSS Select Chorus performs at all middle school concerts as well as at community events throughout the school year. In the past, the Select Chorus has performed at the Bolton Veteran's Day brunch, FSS Holiday Sing-a-long, Golden Eagle ceremonies, Relay for Life, Bolton Baseball Opening Day, and FSS Volunteer Recognition.
Please drop your child off by 7:45 AM at the front door. Students should go to the office to sign in and get a hall pass, then come directly to the music room.
Regarding Missed Rehearsals:
I completely understand that there are often appointments or extra help sessions that cannot be missed. That being said, Select Chorus is an elite group with more performance opportunities than other choruses at Sawyer.
If you know your child will be missing rehearsal, please email me ahead of time to let me know, even if they are just staying home sick. This will prevent us from waiting for your child to arrive.
While students are not penalized for missed rehearsals, students who are unprepared for a performance will not be allowed to perform.
2018-2019 School Year Auditions will take place in the first weeks of school. For the audition, please memorize the following:
1. The Star Spangled Banner (National Anthem) - this will be sung a cappella
2. My Country 'Tis of Thee (verse 1) - this will be sung with accompaniment
Practice files will be uploaded shortly, but for now, please refer to the links in each title.
Anyone interested in Select Chorus must audition with Mrs. Frederick, including past participants.
If you missed the select chorus auditions, never fear! You may still be allowed to audition, depending on the number of participants. Please email or talk to Mrs. Frederick to find out more information.
