Extracurricular Choir Audition Results 24/25

Extracurricular Choir Audition Results - Google Docs.pdf


Choir Families,

We have a lot of exciting information coming from Choir Land, so please read through it all!

We are thrilled to share that we were approved for quad occupancy in the hotel, so we were able to bring the cost of the tour down to $1995 + $250 for the Full Refund Program. That now makes the all-in price $2,245. We were also told that the airline we intend to use (Southwest) will include one free checked bag. Hooray! At this time, the district is still requiring the purchase of the Full Refund Program and not the use of personal travel insurance. Thank you for your patience as we navigated those questions.

We highly encourage you to register for the tour by May 17th. That way, we can ensure that we've hit our 80-person benchmark. That said, we will continue to accept registrants through the beginning of the school year to ensure that any incoming students have the chance to participate.

When you're ready to register, go to and use Travel Code TRFWLX4. I've also attached a registration flier for your reference. Please be sure to purchase the Full Refund Program when you register. We understand that there have been some glitches on the website regarding the FRP, but we believe those have been resolved. Please let us know if you still encounter registration issues.

Additionally, we are coming up on our busiest time of the year - May! Please read the GBN Choir Newsletter to learn about upcoming performances, concerts, auditions, the banquet, and senior recognitions. I can't believe the school year is already coming to a close!

As always, please reach out with any questions. Thank you for a great year!

Paris Tour Info & Registration

Choir Families,

We hope you and your students enjoyed the concert last night! We were extremely pleased with the final product and thought the program went very well for all of the choirs. I hope you enjoyed the song selections and talent on the stage. If you were unable to view the concert, you can find it at (scroll down to Spring Choir Concert).

We also heard there was a GREAT turnout at the Paris Info Meeting - hooray! We apologize that we personally couldn't attend, but we needed to be running the concert logistics with the students. We also know it wasn't ideal to have our host on Zoom, but as we know, COVID is unpredictable! We appreciate your flexibility and understanding.

Here is a link to the presentation.

Here is the link about registration.

For questions, you can contact me or anyone below:

Linda Hanaford (WorldStrides representative) -

Mr. Chad Davidson (Choir) -

Mrs. Hill (Theatre/Crew) -

We will have a follow-up meeting in the Fall, but for now, we hope you're excited about the trip! We hope to see you at our final events (Concert in the Courtyard on 5/28 and An Evening of A Cappella on 6/1).

Thank you, and have a wonderful end of the school year.

Kelsey Nichols & Chad Davidson

Gift-Checkbook Fundraiser!

The CTPO is excited to announce the return of the Boostershot Gift-Checkbook Fundraiser. This is an excellent opportunity to raise money that benefits the choir and theatre programs as well as funds individual student accounts. Students are able to use their profits to pay for choir and theatre-related expenses, such as spirit wear, costume items, voice lessons, domestic and international tours, the choir banquet, and more!

Below, you will find all of the information about the fundraiser. Something new to highlight this year: online ordering! Anyone can order online usine the link provided in the sample letter. Shipping is free and will go directly to purchaser. If the purchaser would like the profit to benefit an individual student, they need to add their name at checkout with the following information:

Organization: GBN CTPO
Group: Choir Name (Treble, Var/Spar, etc.)
Individual: Member Name

If you have questions, please contact the CTPO at Happy selling!
