Brookwood Chorus Parents/Guardians & Students,
Welcome to 2023! There are a few items for me to share as we begin this second semester:
It’s almost time to register for the 2023-2024 school year! Current 9th-11th grade students will register for classes at the end of this month. 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 are posted in the chorus room. Auditions start next week and continue into the first week of February. 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 who likes to sing? Make sure they register for Brookwood Chorus as well!
Congratulations to the following chorus students who passed yesterday evening's final All-State Chorus audition and now are officially members of the 2023 GMEA All-State Chorus!

If your student paid their chorus dues, they received this year’s chorus t-shirt last semester, which we will wear for our Spring Show. If they still need to pay, please click here for instructions.
