PLEASE READ THIS PRIOR TO VIEWING NEXT SCHOOL YEARS CHOIR LISTS!
PLEASE BE CAREFUL: Soon the choir lists will be posted. Please make good decisions about using technology to share your emotions! Sharing your happy or sad thoughts (excited or angry thoughts) can be very dangerous to your relationships with your friends in the Performing Arts Department, as well as your future in the Choir and Theater Department.
If you don’t make the choir that you have been hoping for, please take some time away from your phone and your computer. ALSO, if you DO get in the choir that you have been hoping for, be careful of what you put into print! You could easily crush a friend if they didn’t get in the choir of their dreams. Be conscious and caring about your relationships with your friends. If you spew poison on Instagram, SnapChat, Twitter, Facebook, group texts or other social media know in advance that you will be burning many bridges. THINK – WAIT and then respond. This is written with love from your director! This IS NOT the end of the world.
I’d like to thank everyone that worked hard in preparation for their choir auditions. This was an extremely difficult list to make in many ways. Please understand that if you feel some disappointment because you do not make it into the choir that you dreamed you would I sympathize with you. I have had this experience too from time to time, so I do feel with you. The good news is, you are still in choir–no one can take that away from you (well–occasionally I do, but it’s rare!)
I ask that you trust in me to have made the best decisions for the choir and to know that these decisions are made on so much more than just how you sing or sight read or test on music theory. These lists were VERY difficult to make and I realize that no matter what I do, I cannot satisfy everyone’s desires. If you did make it where you wanted to be Congratulations! Now the hard work begins!
