Dear Parent,


Your child is being invited to participate in our school choir, the “Silver Falcon Singers”. All fourth and fifth grade students are eligible for general membership without audition. Choir members will focus on ensemble singing, music reading skills, and performance technique. Students should come out of this experience being more able and confident musicians.


Regular required choir rehearsals will be held on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 7:35 to 8:20, with the first rehearsal set for Tuesday, September 2. As performances near, additional optional rehearsals may be called. Special audition sessions may also be scheduled, and you will be notified in advance of these dates. This fall, the choir will be preparing a holiday musical which will be presented on Thursday, December 11, at 6:00 p.m. The choir will also present a spring program on the evening of Thursday, April 23, 2015. Other performance opportunities may arise, and in that event, information will be sent out to you.


Please take some time with your child to consider this opportunity. Once your child has decided to join us, please help him/her fill out the membership form on the back of this letter. The MEMBERSHIP EXPECTATIONS are important and should be read carefully. It is especially important for your child to understand that this is a full school year commitment. All members will need to participate in the holiday AND spring programs. Help your child understand that signing this form is like signing a contract. Have your child bring the signed form to the music room any time before the first rehearsal.
