Choralation 2021

Thank you to all of the students who tried out for Choralation! I am pleased to announce the membership for next year! I look forward to making great music with you and no matter what COVID throws our way, we will make 2020-2021 a great year of singing beautiful music together.

We will explore flexible voicing especially among the women.

Please sign up for the new remind app as a means of confirming your acceptance into next year’s ensemble. This will become our principal means of communicating throughout the next several months. Send a text to 81010, text this message: @644ece

Thank you for sharing your talent and your commitment!

Updating your Google Classroom

Hello Choir Students and Parents,

With the new announcement of school closure through the 28th of April, I want to make sure everyone is up-to-date with the Google Classroom Codes. If you are not a member of the Google Classroom for your choir, please be sure to get signed up. We have a particular need for those members who are in Cantaré, Cantus and Camerata.

Talk to you soon about plans going forward.
