SD Honor Choir Rehearsals

posted in: LHS Chorus News | 0

You should be getting your Honors Choir music in the mail within the next week.

 

Here are the city wide rehearsals scheduled so far to help prepare you for Honors Choir.  Please attend as many as possible!  That will help you to be less stressed if your quartet is chosen to be spot checked.

 

They also have rehearsal tracks on their website.  Take advantage of that.

 

Here are the rehearsals:

LHS  Monday, June 26th, 3:30-5:30 PM

OG  Monday, July 10th, 2-4 PM

RHS  Monday, July 24, 6-8 PM

 

We have not yet heard from WHS when they will be hosting their rehearsal, but I will let you know, once I hear back from him.

See you on June 26th!
