SWACDA Honor Choir Opportunity

Dear CHS Choir Parents and Students,

Here is a great opportunity to be in a National Honor Choir through the American Choral Directors Southwest Division.  Last year we were represented by four outstanding CHS Choir Members in these honor choirs!  This is a great way to have your high school resume stand out when you apply for colleges and scholarships.  Here is some information you need as you consider this opportunity:

  • SWACDA Honor Choir Website
  • All Students who are selected will need to pay for their housing, travel, registration as well as any other costs for this convention.
  • Mr. McLean is coordinating the recordings and registration for the audition and will need copies of the solo you will record by October 3.  All recordings must be completed by October 14th.
  • The CHS Choir Booster Club will pay for the $25 audition fee for all students who contact Mr. McLean by October 1st and submit their solos.

Contact Mr. McLean at wmclean@coppellisd.com with questions and to setup recording times.  Thanks for considering this great opportunity!

District Audition Information

Dear CHS Choir Parents and Students,

Here is all the information you need for Saturday’s District Audition.

Audition Letter and Information

Lunch Order Form – Students Complete by Wednesday at the end of school.

Final Reminders:

  1.  These contests usually run behind.  If we are significantly behind, we will make parents aware by email and twitter on the day of the contest.  Directors are unavailable by phone because they will be judging all day.  If there is an emergency, please contact one of the phone numbers in the letter.
  2. Students and Directors will not have their phones as it could cause them to be disqualified from the contest.  This is a TMEA State-wide regulation imposed by the contest.
  3. If you have any questions that are not answered in the letter, please let us know!
  4. Results will be posted online as soon as the results are announced to the students.  Feel free to visit the news page of our website (www.coppellchoir.com) for more information.

Thanks again for having your students in choir and for supporting them in this contest.

9-10 Honor Choir Information

Parents and Students-
 
The time of 9th and 10th Grade Honor Choir Auditions is drawing near.  Coppell traditionally shows VERY well in this contest and we expect this year to be no different.  This year’s contest will be held on Saturday October 19th at Woodrow Wilson HS and if they are selected for this Honor Choir, they will perform at Cedar Hill HS on November 16.  Students will leave from CHS early that morning and compete during the day.  The music they will sing for the audition will be covered in class, but students are HIGHLY encouraged to use their practice recordings at home, which are available to them in their class Google Drives.  
 
Following this link: http://tinyurl.com/910honorchoir will take you the intent to audition form that is REQUIRED to be filled out by all students by Tuesday, September 24.  Students that we register for this contest are committing to this process and will through to audition.
 
We are excited to have your students interested in this audition!  If you have further questions, please send them to wmclean@coppellisd.com.
