ATTENTION ALL CHAMBER CHOIR MEMBERS: Please check your email DAILY for your assignments during online instruction. Assignments will be emailed and posted here by 9:00am each day we have class, or at the beginning of each week, to help you space our your practicing. Thank you!
Thurs., 6/4 ~ Your assignment today is to come to our final rehearsal, 8:30pm on Zoom!
Mon., 6/1 ~ Firstly, if you haven’t already done so, please watch these videos from Alex MacNicoll, professional actor and master class artist who visited us in September:
Thurs., 5/28 ~ I would like to hold the final rehearsal Zoom call on Thursday, June 4th, at 5pm, but I want to make sure everyone is available to be there. Your assignment today is twofold:
SENIORS: Please schedule your Exit Interview with Mrs. Cudworth asap!
Thurs., 5/21 ~ Your (Thankful Thursday) assignment is to: Approach someone in your life, either in person (if they live in your house) or via technology (if they live outside your house), and tell them you are thankful for them. That’s it! I hope you have a nice little moment with someone today born by thankfulness. Honor system – you don’t have to confirm with me you did this.
Mon., 5/18 ~ Last week, you told me which choir song from this school year is your favorite. I would like you to choose part of that song to sing for me in a short video. It doesn’t have to be the whole song, but if you have a burning desire to sing all of it for me, I won’t hold you back! It can be ten seconds, it can be two minutes…whatever hits you in that moment. If the song is from first semester and you don’t currently have the sheet music with you, I’m sure you can find a version on YouTube to sing with. If you’d like to get creative and accompany yourself on an instrument you have at your house, I won’t say no to that either!
Thurs., 5/14 ~ In email or video format, please tell me about your FAVORITE song we all sang together this year. It can be from either semester. If I remember correctly, this includes the following pieces:
Mon., 5/11 ~ All you have to do is tell me if you are taking any AP tests, which ones they are, and on which days they occur. THAT’S IT. If you are not taking any AP tests, simply send me a message that says “I am not taking any AP tests”.
Thurs., 5/7 ~ Your assignment is contained in this video:

Fri., 6/12, noon ~ Watch the 2020 Seniors’ Graduation video, with their rendition of “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana!
[Chamber Choir rehearses each Monday and Thursday from 2:30-3:10 in the Choir Room, unless otherwise announced.]
(After each rehearsal, I will post the activity from that session, so those who were absent can learn what they missed for the next time we meet, and so those who were present can review as needed. Once we learn part of a piece, you are expected to know it for the next rehearsal! If you were absent when we learned something, you are expected to be familiar with what you missed by the next rehearsal. You are expected to be familiar enough with the keyboard to rehearse on your own. Please utilize the resources around you!)
Be prepared at every rehearsal with your folder, music, and a pencil!
Members of Chamber Choir purchase their own attire through the school. Information on this, as well as the Gertrude Hawk fundraising opportunity to offset costs, will become available within the first month of school.
Chamber Choir women will choose their own shoes. They must be formal and all black with a small heel, if any. They may be open or closed-toed.
Chamber Choir men may choose their own black formal shoes if they wish, or they may purchase them through the school.
Reminder: It is your responsibility to educate your other teachers and coaches on the nature of Chamber Choir. YOU must tell them that it is a CLASS, for a GRADE, and CREDIT that goes towards your GPA. Please explain that it is CURRICULAR.
