Happy Sunday! One full week of classes left!!

I had a blast with the students who came with me to see “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”! A special shout-out to all the teachers who helped chaperone. We had fun at Ellen’s Stardust Diner, walking around mid-town, and of course, at the show itself. I have added pictures on my website: www.roslynmschorus.org/photos . I have also included photos from SPOTLIGHT, the REVEAL CONCERT, and CONCERTS. If you have any photos you would like to share, please email them to me, and I will add them to our growing photo album. Some of you have already sent me some, so thank you! Below are just two picture from Friday.

 

Chorale in Times Square

Chorale at Ellen's Stardust Diner

REMINDER: All projects are due JUNE 9TH. The project will be completed in class and outside of class. While students are completing the projects at home, we are also going to complete a study unit comparing “The Wizard of Oz” and “Wicked”. Students may turn in projects earlier.

Congratulations to those who were accepted into Chorale for next year and to those accepted on the wait list. Please remind your child that it is an accomplishment to have auditioned at all. All students are expected to remain respectful and considerate, as the audition process is very sensitive. I have rubrics for all students who auditioned, and they are available upon request.

The following are updates for Chorus, Chorale, and Spotlight. For those of you new to Weekly Updates, you can find previous newsletters on my website: www.roslynmschorus.org. If you would like to unsubscribe to these emails, please respond to this email with: “UNSUBSCRIBE”. You are automatically subscribed if you send an email regarding Chorus, Chorale, or Spotlight.

Warmest Regards,

SPOTLIGHT
1. Auditions for “Les Miserables” are going to be in mid-September. At the start of the school year I will have an informational meeting about the exact cuts of the songs, audition requirements, etc. However, here is a preview so you can get a head start over the summer; the following songs are going to be the required songs for specific voice parts:

CHORALE
1. This week we will be meeting on MONDAY, WEDNESDAY, AND FRIDAY.
2. Please make a note that ALL students, 7th AND 8th grade, are required to sing at the 8th grade graduation on June 22nd at 11am at Hofstra. There will a bus that leaves from school.
3. As the school year is ending, attendance is very important!!! Please make sure you are coming to rehearsals on time and regularly so we sound terrific at graduation.
4. I was able to separate our concert audio from the video, so I will be making an album of these tracks for your enjoyment, rather than recording them live.
CHORUS
1. All projects are due June 9th, this Friday! If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email or come during extra-help.
2. If you would like a copy of the concert, please send in a flash drive and I will put the recordings onto it. I can’t send the files because they are too big.
3. I will be sending chorus folders home this week, but if your child is registered for chorus next year, please save the folder since personal folders will be mandatory next year.

 

All my best,

Cyndi Feinman
