Vox Humana Camp Opportunity

Click here a brochure about our Inaugural Vox Humana Choral Academy, to be held from July 14-18, 2014, at Booker T. Washington High School.

 

The Academy is designed to present North Texas vocal students in grades 7-12 with a unique choral opportunity spearheaded by some of the finest musicians in the country. We are thrilled to announce that the Advanced Choir (grades 10-12) will be conducted by Dr. Anton Armstrong (St. Olaf Choir), and the Preparatory Choir (grades 7-9) will be led by Dr. Judy Bowers (The Florida State University). In addition, students will have the opportunity to study private voice and conducting with members of Vox Humana (a professional choir of 24 singers drawn from all over the United States), and will be able to attend a lecture and presentation about the care of the voice from staff (including a surgical ENT) from UTSW Medical Center. The week will conclude with a final concert involving all groups and master teachers, planned for Friday, July 18th at 6:00pm.

 

UP TO 100% IN SCHOLARSHIP MONEY IS AVAILABLE!

Ranger Game Information

Dear Parents of Singers for the Ranger Game,

Here is some updated information about the Ranger Game on April 30:
  • I will distribute the student tickets as we get closer to April 30.  
  • Singers will meet Mr. Brown near the home plate entrance on the ground level at 6:00 PM.  Make sure to plan for traffic and time to park.  Parking usually costs between $10 and $15.  
  • Singers will need to wear their Black CHS Choir Polos and Khakis (no capris or shorts).  They will also need to wear close toed shoes.   Shirts will need to be tucked in with a belt.  Singers who do not follow this dress code will not be allowed on the field.  Anyone still needing a polo will need to email jbrown@coppellisd.com with their size.  We have ordered the additional polos we need and they will be in by the end of the week. 
  • No parents will be allowed to go onto the field or downstairs with the singers and directors.  
  • Singers will rehearse each morning before school in the choir room at 8 AM starting tomorrow.
Please let me know if you have any questions. We are excited about this performance opportunity!
