Choirs
Hello all chorus students and parents/guardians,

We are very excited for our end of the year activities that are quickly approaching. I wanted to touch base and make sure you know of the upcoming opportunities.

Spring Concert May 9 at 7:00pm in the Wheeler Performing Arts Center.
This is our final concert of the year and is more pop and musical theatre style songs. We also showcase some our individual talent as well in the student showcase portion of the concert. The concert is free so invite all your family and friends. The Spring concert also features a chorus alumni song where we invite all Wheeler chorus alums to join us on stage for a familiar piece that has become a tradition. Finally, we celebrate our seniors in this concert.

Chorus Banquet May 16 at 6:00pm at Eastside Baptist Student Center
Today I am sending home the banquet sign up form. This is our fun way to close out the year sharing our successes and just celebrating the chorus program. The slideshow is always a highlight as well. It is not mandatory, but we do need a solid number of who is attending to order the correct amount of food. All of the details are included in the form that is attached in this email. PLEASE respond by the due date of May 2 with any prepayment (for non chorus members). We are not selling tickets at the door this year. Finally, we do need some volunteers to help facilitate the banquet and have setup a sign up genius to fill the spots. Here is the link to volunteer: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090e4cacab2aabfa7-chorus1

Thank you all for your support of the Wheeler Chorus program and I look forward to seeing you at these events. Please email me with any questions at john.perry@cobbk12.org.

Choirs
Congratulations to all of the choirs for a great performance in our Festival Concert last Tuesday! I was very proud at how focused and musical were during the concert. It is a culmination of all our hard work since the beginning of the semester. Also congratulations to Bel Voce and their fantastic LGPE performance. We made great improvements in literally one rehearsal and I was so proud at how you came together for such a great LGPE performance. Also, the sightreading portion was a major strength of the day. This week we will complete our vocal one on a part testing and then we will start our final (!) Spring concert music.
