Brookwood Chorus Parents/Guardians & Students,
Welcome to 2024! There are a few items for me to share as we begin this second semester:
It’s almost time to register for the 2024-2025 school year! Current 9th-11th grade students will register for classes at the end of this month/beginning of February. I look forward to seeing our chorus students return next year as we build upon the music and skills we are working on during our current school year!
Treble voices (Soprano/Alto) who are interested in auditioning for our advanced class (Cantabile) should sign up for an audition. Audition times will be posted in the chorus room next week. Auditions start January 29. In the meantime, make sure to register for chorus so that you’re eligible to audition. Treble Chorus students who are currently in 4th period/Cantabile remain. Treble Chorus students who do not audition will be placed into 3rd period/Rhapsody chorus. Tenors & Basses remain in 5th period chorus.
Do you know someone who loves to sing, but isn’t in chorus? Please make sure to send them to me! Do you know an 8th grade student from Five Forks or Crews Middle who likes to sing? Make sure they register for Brookwood Chorus as well!
If your student paid their chorus dues, they will receive the spring show chorus shirt later this semester. If they still need to pay, please click here for instructions.
Need a Uniform?
If you need a uniform or single component, (required for formal concerts like LGPE), please click here. Order several weeks before you need something.
LGPE Date Update
Large Group Performance Evaluation (LGPE) schedules will be available soon from GMEA. We will perform at LGPE on March 4, 5, or 6. When I find out, I'll let everyone know!
Field trip forms & chaperone sign up opportunities will be sent home in the next couple of weeks. Bus transportation will be provided. As in the past, LGPE is held at FUMC Lawrenceville, and you are welcome to attend our performances there. Here's the schedule for now:
Our home Pre-LGPE concert will still be held on February 27 at 6pm, with a required after school rehearsal on February 26. Check the calendar here for additional dates.
NYC Trip Update
We're getting closer to our NCY trip! Instructions on how to access your Delta airline tickets will be coming out soon; I will send home a letter with instructions for each student that contain confirmation codes. Sorry, I can't post that online!
A required student & chaperone meeting will be held via zoom on February 20, 2024 at 7pm. A separate email will be sent with the zoom link a few days before the meeting; the email will come via WeTravel, so make sure your email address in WeTravel is correct.
It will be May before you know it! Our spring show will be presented twice: May 2 & 3 at 7pm. Solos & small group rehearsals will be held April 29, all students will have rehearsal on April 30 & May 1 after school until roughly 6pm. More details will come out after spring break. Tickets go on sale in April via GoFan.
Braves Performance: 2024
Mark your calendars! Our next performance at the Atlanta Braves will be on Saturday, August 24, 2024. Ticket details coming soon - we're waiting on the group order system to open up from the Braves. Only students enrolled in chorus for the 2024-2025 school year will be eligible to perform.
The final All-State chorus help session is Wednesday, January 17, 2:20-3:10pm. All-State students should the practicing every day this weekend to ensure success!
