To share a number of pieces of important information pertaining to next year, there is a required meeting for all 2019-20 show choir members and parents/guardians on Wednesday, May 29th at 7PM in the East Auditorium. This meeting is for families of students in Elevation, Elegance, or Express in 2019-20. Students and parents/guardians may enter through the main door (Door 1) at East.
At this meeting, we will be sharing:
- Fee & Contribution Schedule for 2019-20
- Required Forms/Paperwork
- Parent Volunteer Sign-Ups
- Competition Schedule
- Show Theme & Song Selections
Especially if this is your first venture into show choir, attendance at this meeting is absolutely necessary to ensure there is clarity in communicating expectations, needs, and the value of this musical experience. Even if you feel you are a “seasoned veteran” show choir parent, attendance from at least one parent is expected at this important meeting.
At the May 29th meeting, parents and students will be able to meet the newest member of the East Vocal Music Department. We are excited to welcome Mr. Aaron Zart (2011 graduate of East) onto our team! With our show choirs, Mr. Zart will be directing Elegance and co-directing Express with Miss Wissink.
In the meantime, please mark the following dates on your calendars:
- Express Choreography with Ben: July 22-24 and October 10-11, 2019
(Students should block out the entire day – exact hours dependent on summer school schedule, etc, but likely Noon – 9PM)
- Elegance Choreography with Anne: August 8-11, 2019
(Students should block out the entire evening – exact hours dependent on students’ efficiency in learning and retaining choreography, but we ask students reserve from 3PM until 9PM. For Saturday, August 10th, please block out 9AM – 9PM. We will have choreo on Sunday only if necessary.)
- Elevation Choreography: TBA
We look forward to seeing you all in the East Auditorium at 7PM on Wednesday, May 29th!
