ENSEMBLE ROSTERS 2020-2021
East Singers, Jazz Choir, Elevation, Elegance, Express
Congratulations to all!
Thank you so much for auditioning for these groups. We’re so proud of the work you put
in to prepare for auditions, and we’re looking forward to next year.
Our vocal music program is continually growing. While this is incredibly exciting, our auditioned ensembles have become more competitive. As directors, we take great care in assigning students to each ensemble, working to place students where they will grow both as musicians and individuals. This is truly the most difficult part of our job, and finalizing rosters is definitely a process that we do not take lightly.
Please remember that other students and parents are receiving this same information, so represent yourself and Lincoln East well in your responses. There will be both excitement and disappointment when rosters are posted. Parents, please help your students in knowing how best to respond. Posting on social media might not be the wisest option. Public reactions can come across as bragging or belittling someone else’s joy. It is best to just avoid this altogether. Lead With Love.
Information about auditioned groups:
East Singers is our varsity concert choir and has one of the richest choral traditions in Lincoln. Jazz Choir is a “pull-out ensemble” from East Singers, meeting during the same class period. As such, Jazz Choir members will also be involved in several East Singers rehearsals each week. Jazz Choir is our most selective vocal ensemble, and as such, this group is usually involved in several additional community performances throughout the school year, some of which occur outside of the school day.
With the growing success of our show choirs, we find ourselves with more and more students auditioning. All three of our show choirs have found continued success in competition, and we are thrilled that Elevation, especially, is growing. Next year, Elevation will continue to reflect that growth. The success of all three ensembles is due largely to the fact that students have the opportunity to be involved in show choir all four years of high school. The future is very bright, indeed! It is with great excitement that we look forward to our show choir season next year and beyond! Three Choirs, One Family!
Show Choir Info Meeting
We are currently planning on the original date for our Show Choir Info Meeting: May 14th, 2020 at 7:00 PM in the East Auditorium. We understand that we are in a very uncertain and fluid time, so if anything changes, we will be sure to communicate. It is expected that both parents and students be present for this meeting, as we will be sharing information about scheduling, expectations, payments, and more, in addition to having you complete necessary paperwork.
