Alternative Assignment - Due at the end of the quarter for any student unable to attend our quarterly concert.
Concerts are the final "exam" in each quarter. No matter what prohibits your child from attending, the district requires a make up assignment. A hand written or typed 2-3 page essay is due for each choir your child is enrolled in. Students should spend time researching each piece he or she is preparing for the concert. Include background information on the composer or arranger. If the song is in a foreign language, research the meaning or translation of the song. Using musical terms, discuss how the music supports the lyrics or the message of the song, what the genre is and what makes this particular song that genre, etc. The essay should consist of an introductory paragraph explaining the musical genre of the quarter, then a paragraph on each piece and a conclusion. Hard or electronic copies are accepted.
We have a system to send out reminders about fundraisers, events, clinics, concerts, etc if you would like to sign up.
