NEW! We were shut down two weeks prior to opening this musical in 2020 due to the pandemic and it was truly heartbreaking. This is such a wonderful show, so after much careful thought and discussion, we have decided to bring MATILDA back again in March 2023! This is a must see for kids and adults of all ages! It’s playful, magical, and very touching. Mark your calendars for March 23, 24, and 25, 2023!

Here’s a trailer to get a feel for the show:CLICK HERE!


NEW! Today we will begin the process of selecting the Pop Go the Sailors Theme for next spring, 2023!

Don’t just think about the one song you would love to audition and then pick a theme that fits that song!

When thinking of an idea, ponder the following:

What could the set look like?

What sorts of costumes could we use?

What would be a great opening act?

What would be a really nice closing number?

What could each of the four choirs do: Treble, Anchormen, Singers, Acappella?

Don’t just think about the one song you would love to audition and then pick a theme that fits that song!

Are there still even more ideas for cool specialty acts?

Here are some lists you can look through to spark ideas (often, Dance Recital Ideas work well for our Pop Show too!)

SIGN UP NOW!-NYC, 2023! Last week Tuesday, we presented the 2023 NYC Junior/Senior trip itinerary, cost, and payment plan! All the info is available below and you can pick up hard copies in the choir room. First payment is due June 17th, in order to keep the overall monthly payments as low as possible, and so we can secure the Marriott Marquis in the heart of Times Square!

REMINDER! Well, looks like we will be taking two busses this time! Details coming soon!

REMINDER-2024 OVERSEAS TOUR UPDATE! Attention this year’s sophomores, freshman (as well as current 7th and 8th grade choir students): We will be again traveling overseas in June of 2024. We will have a meeting prior to the end of the school year where we will share further details such as where we will be going, costs, itinerary, etc. but just wanted to give you a heads up!
