Freshman Choir

ALL Freshman women who have an interest in singing are encouraged to enroll in FRESHMAN CHOIR! This class does not require an audition, and is an excellent way to enhance your vocal music skills and keep your interest in music alive. All are welcome!

For each day of class, you will receive a Zoom link in your Google Calendar (you will get it via email). Please note there will be a PASSCODE for each of these meetings! If you are with us virtually, you will join us that way. If not, I will see you in the classroom. Either way, I look forward to meeting you very soon! 

NOTE: Freshman gents who wish to join choir are placed in a comparable ensemble, CONCERT CHOIR! Please see that webpage for details.

-Concert Attire-

[NOTE: For the 2020-21 school year, Freshman Choir members will not be required to purchase specific Concert Attire through the school. Uniforms for performance events will be made up of items you likely already own.]

All Freshman Choir members will purchase their own Concert Attire through the school. Details about this will be given in class and emailed to students and parents within the first month of school.

Freshman Choir members will choose their own shoes. They must be formal and all black with a small heel, if any (for safety and comfort onstage, please make sure the heel is small!). The shoes may be open or closed-toed.

We also offer a fundraising opportunity for those who wish to offset the cost of their clothes. This is a direct sale which solely benefits the individual purchasing the attire.
