Hambright 5th and 6th Grade Chorus Information

Good Evening Chorus Parents, Family and Friends!

I hope you are all having a wonderful evening! I just wanted to make you aware of some different opportunities for you and your chorus student.

At Home Practice Resources:
As you are probably well aware, the Hambright Chorus has already begun rehearsing for the Holiday Concert. The concert will be Wednesday December 13th at 5:30 here at Hambright. As with any musical instrument, at home practice is key to success. Please help to encourage your student to practice their chorus music at home. Students will be receiving practice copies of their music tomorrow at rehearsal and practice recordings will be available on my blog tomorrow afternoon.

 

Carpool Information:
I have had several families contact me in regards to helping to organize a chorus rehearsal carpool as to better aid parents who work in the morning get their child to rehearsal. To better help families who would be willing to participate in a carpool with families who are looking for transportation for their child, I have created this form: Hambright Chorus Carpool Survey  If you would be willing to carpool or are looking for transportation for your student, please complete the Hambright Chorus Carpool Survey. Just as a friendly reminder, chorus rehearsal begins at 8 am and I am not able to accommodate students arriving before 8 am. If transportation is an issue for your student, please be sure to complete the Hambright Chorus Carpool Survey above and I will help to connect you with other families who would be willing to carpool.

It is a pleasure to work with your students as their chorus director. I have been quite impressed with all of the talent that we have here in the Hambright Elementary 5th and 6th Grade Chorus and I am excited for all your students will accomplish this year!

If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Have a great evening!

First Day of Chorus was a HUGE Success!

Thank you parents, friends and family for taking the time to bring your child to school early this morning for chorus rehearsal!  We had a wonderful and highly successful rehearsal. The students jumped right into our winter concert repertoire and we also practiced some “part independence” by singing a 3 part cannon!  I am so proud of these kids and excited to see all that we can accomplish this year!

Check out the cannon here.

Partner Songs and Cannons!

What an exciting start to the school year it has been! We have been exploring the world of cannons and partner songs all while having fun along the way.

After learning the song, students worked in small groups to master both the singing of the melody and the playing of the instrumental accompaniment that went with the songs.

Check out these awesome students showing off their musical talents!
