HSES Chorus



The HSES Chorus is offered to our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students as an after-school club in the Fall.  Students who are in chorus will meet in the cafeteria for their snack when school is dismissed at 2:30 on Monday afternoons.  From 2:45 until 3:30 we will rehearse in the music room and then students will be picked up in the car-rider line in the front of the school.  They will have several chances throughout the semester to perform at various school functions. 

Chorus provides an opportunity for students to develop their musical potential and aesthetic understanding through singing in an ensemble.  Students in chorus will learn about the importance of proper breathing through warm-ups and exercises.  They will practice their singing skills as they perform a variety of repertoire.  They will improve their score-reading skills and learn the importance of responsible rehearsal habits.  Most importantly, they will grow both musically and personally for the lifelong pursuit and enjoyment of music!

Performances

Veterans Day Program - The Chorus Club will perform the National Anthem during our Veterans Day Program which will be next Friday, November 11th at 9:30. There will be very limited seating, so if you'd like to come please come early!

High Shoals Health and Rehabilitation - We will perform for the residents of HSH&R on Thursday, December 8th at 3:00. Students will need to be picked up from school at dismissal and we will all meet at the facility (http://highshoalshealth.org/directions.html) around 2:45ish (it is only 5 minutes from the school). The performance will take about 20 minutes and afterwards students will visit for a few minutes with the residents and guests. If your child is normally a bus rider and you are having trouble getting to the school at that time, feel free to work it out with another chorus parent to carpool. 

Parent Share Session - On our last chorus practice, the students would like to do a very informal performance for anyone who would like to come! They will perform all of the pieces they have been working on through the semester. It will be Monday, December 12th at 3:00 in the HSES gym. 

NOHS vs. OCHS Varsity Basketball Game - I have also lined up a performance of the National Anthem at the North Oconee High School/Oconee High School varsity basketball game on Friday, January 20th at NOHS at 8:30 pm. We will need to arrive early to get lined up so keep that in mind as you are making plans. I am still working out information about tickets, etc.
