Concert Choir Assessment

Attendance

            A schedule will be given out at the beginning of the school year. You must attend all events/concerts. 

Failure to do so will result in a 15% quarter grade deduction per event/concert.

 

Assignments – 30% - approximately two per quarter

Sightreadingfactory assignments must be done on time. Be a responsible student, or it’ll cost you 10% per day (including non-school days). If you are unable to access a cell phone or computer at home, one is available in the school practice rooms.

 

Rehearsal Preparedness - 50% (includes 20% level 1 requirements)

            Come to class with a clean chorus binder and a pencil.

Professional singers are constantly listening, writing, following along, and singing.

Your music should have a LOT of pencil marks!

If you’re sick, you need a water bottle.


Artist in Residence- 20%

            The Friends of Music Booster club has paid for you to have free voice lessons for the entire school year! Ms. Aleks Donato is a professional singer who will teach the chorus as a group and as a private vocal instructor. You are responsible for signing up for your Friday lesson time each month (between 2-5 pm), attending it, and submitting an online assignment by the following Monday evening (midnight).
