Below is the fourth installment of the GBN Choir Newsletter. Stay tuned for more updates regarding our Virtual Fall Concert!
This year, we have a new GBN Choir Newsletter to keep parents/guardians in the loop about all of the exciting things going on in our program. If you would like to be added to the email list to receive the newsletters, please email Mrs. Nichols at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our first three editions are below!
Thank you to everyone who came out for virtual auditions. We were incredibly impressed by the level of talent and had very difficult decisions to make. Congratulations to the new members of our ensembles – we look forward to working with you!
As you may know, we offer private voice lessons at GBN (currently being held virtually). We highly encourage all students to take voice, as it provides valuable 1:1 instruction and feedback. Our teachers are top professionals in the field and create wonderful relationships with the students.
The teachers have graciously created videos to introduce themselves and sing for the students. To view the videos, and for general information, please click the following links. To sign up, your student should complete the form located in their Google Classroom. Let us know if you have questions!
Check it out – the “Choir (Without Choir)” video was featured on the CBS local news! We’re ready to make this school year great.
This year our auditions are going virtual! Below you will find the Google Folder for each of the ensembles: Ladies First, Fermata Nowhere, Ow!, and Express. Each folder will contain all of the materials needed to prepare and submit the audition.
Due to the unique nature of the year, we are opening up auditions for every group to any choir student freshman-senior.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Mrs. N (Ladies First, Fermata, and Ow!) or Mr. D (Express). All auditions are due next Friday, 8/28, at 11:59 PM. We look forward to hearing your auditions!
GBN Choir is coming back – virtually! We are so excited to start the year with everyone and create new memories.
If you are a current student, please make sure you’ve checked your email for the welcome letter. It includes all of the information for Zoom, Google Classroom, etc.
Additionally, there is a special YouTube Premiere TONIGHT! Tune in at 7:30 PM for a special music video.
Here are the latest a cappella offerings from Ow! and Fermata Nowhere! Thanks to Mr. S for working with the kids to put these together. And, to all the students involved, we’re all so proud of you!
Right now, we would have been getting ready for the Concert in the Park. We’d be out in the Village Green, taking pictures, comparing outfits, and warming up our voices. Families would be gathering on lawn chairs and blankets, and groups of kids would be playing frisbee off to the side. While we aren’t able to be together in person, I hope that this video brings some sense of togetherness during this time. Despite everything, we can still bring our voices together in song. Nearly 100 GBN Choir students submitted audio or video tracks to make this possible. Thank you, and enjoy.
It’s time!! Please click the following link to view the Live Premiere of our Virtual Choir Banquet. It will begin at 7:00 PM sharp. You are welcome to use the chat provided that you are positive! Enjoy.
Also, if you’d like to say a quick hello, we will be hosting a Pre-Banquet welcome at 6:45 PM. Stop in and we can celebrate together!
