Edgewood Elementary School Music/Chorus

The Music Program at Edgewood Elementary School Welcomes you to our School!

Edgewood Elementary school provides a General Music class during the school day. Each student will attend with their homeroom class once per week as listed on the Homeroom Teachers schedule . Music class will include the Yamaha Music-in-Education Keyboard lab for approximately 1/2 of the school year. For 2018-2019, Mr. C plans to introduce components of the Orff-Schulwerk system in all grades during the time period from January 2nd, 2019 - March 27th, 2019. For the Fourth Quarter all grades will complete units involving "Instruments of the Orchestra", with an emphasis on the six instruments available to the Central Middle School Band. Additionally, all students will use the "Music Ace" Software to complete a unit on Composition. Edgewood also has an auditioned after-school SSA Chorus.

CHORUS AUDITIONS:

Chorus Auditions for the 2018-2019 Edgewood Elementary Chorus will be held during the school day on September 18th, 2018. These auditions will take place during the encore times for each class. Forms are available from Mr. C in the music room, On this page underneath the announcements, and from the front office. Chorus members who COMPLETED the 2017-2018 School year do NOT have to audition. They are in chorus unless they inform Mr. C that they do not want to sing for the 2018-2019 school year. Any students that quit chorus during the year MUST audition again, and their acceptance is not guaranteed.

The most recent chorus letter is always the first document at the top of the list visible below. As the school is using ClassDojo, I am also sending a PDF version of the letter via ClassDojo. Normally, Chorus letters will be sent home on Thursday. Please help us by making chorus rehearsal an important event in your daily schedule.
