WELCOME TO HUSKY CHOIR!!!
I know we are going to have a GREAT year, Huskies! This year we have five fabulous Husky choirs!
Women's Choir -- a beginning choir for Husky ladies in all grades.
Mixed Choir -- beginning choir for men and women, a great opportunity for singers new to choir -- lots of fun!
Concert Choir -- intermediate choir for both men and women, more challenging! Open to all during fifth period, by audition, come meet with Mrs. Rutherford if you're interested!
Treble Choir -- advanced, auditioned choir for ladies only, singing in 3-4 parts! This is an auditioned choir second period!
Chamber Singers -- these top Husky singers have been auditioned into this advanced choir with many extra performance opportunities! This class meets third period and is already auditioned for the school year.
Our After-School Ensembles will start-up once we are back on campus in a blended-learning, or traditional schedule.
We also have extra performance opportunities for any GUYS interested in singing in Men's Ensemble after school, whether you're enrolled in a choir class or not! We will start on Tuesdays from 2:30-3:30, and anyone is welcome to join!
Handbells meets after school and is open to all that are interested -- should have basic knowledge of reading music, and be ready for rehearsal with some crazy and fun students! Mondays (or another day if so decided) 2:30-4:00
Acappella Club is for students interested in singing more contemporary acappella music, like Pentatonix or Voctave. Times and dates are TBD.
Due to COVID-19, our performance dates will be put on hold. We will find new and creative ways to sing together and perform online, until we are cleared to sing and perform together in person!
Thank you for understanding, and being flexible at this time.
Give 100% in class EVERY DAY! Be an Academic Achiever, Huskies -- work hard and we will create something awesome together."You can do, if you choose to."
