The GMS Choir is an opportunity for 6-8th grade students to sing together! Singers in this ensemble will participate in performances throughout the year, experience choral music in a variety of styles, and build vocal technique and music-reading skills.
GMS Choir members will rehearse before school once a week:
Tuesday - 7:15-8:00am - Girls
Wednesday - 7:15-8:00am - Boys
The following morning rehearsals will combine the girls and boys to prepare for the concert: 10/30, 10/31, 1/29, 1/30, 4/30, 5/1
When preparing for performances, rehearsal attendance is a necessity. In order to participate in performances, students must have no more than 1 absence per trimester. Students with no more than 1 absence per trimester will be allowed to sign up for the Adventureland performance at the end of the year. Weekly attendance will be recorded in the links below:
