• During the 4th 9 weeks, the SCHS Choir students were taught this song in chunks using teaching videos each week and demo tracks that Mr. Horton and I created.  These are the students who learned the song and submitted their videos in a timely manner.  I'm very proud of them.  We couldn't have a real performance, and most of these students didn't really need to turn anything in because their grades were so great for the 9 weeks.  They did it because they believe in the message of the song and for the love of music. They were working on this song throughout April, during the height of the COVID-19 scare, when we all banded together and social distanced as a united cause.  Remember that context as you listen.  Powerful words! 

    I need to give a great amount of credit to Mr. Horton who edited everything (audio and video).  This song was extra tricky for this setting because the accompaniment doesn't provide a clear beat at the beginning so it took a lot of work to line up everyone's singing.  Mr. Horton (having never done anything like this before) took the challenge head on.  Great job Mr. Horton!

    Awards

    Every student is important in our Choir.  Every student has something unique to offer and makes that group what it is.  We wish we could give every student an award, but we can't.  There was also much debate because there are many students we could give these awards to.

    We have 4 type of awards: Student Awards (students vote), Director Awards, and Scholarships and other Honors.  Congratulations students!  I will email you with your own personalized certificate this week!  Seniors - make sure you put your personal email into Charms since your school email addresses will no longer be valid.

    SCHS Choir

     

     

    Renaming some Choirs and introducing a new Choir:

    SCHS Treble Choir (7th period, brand new choir)- a women's choir designed for beginning Choir students, freshman and upper classmen) who are still learning to read music and building their sightreading skills.  This is a non-auditioned choir; however students may need to sing for the director for voice placement purposes only.  The only prerequisites are passing grades, a great attitude, and a love for singing. 

    Bella Vox ("beautiful voice") - (5th period, formerly Women's Chamber Choir) an elite freshman women's choir. Students are rated by their middle school choir teacher on the following criteria: vocal ability, work ethic, sightreading ability, musicianship, growth mindset, works well in a team, and positive attitude. The final decision for placement is made by the SCHS Choir Directors. 

    Vox Fortis ("strong voices") - (2nd period, formerly Men's Chamber Choir) a men's choir for freshman and upperclassmen. This is a non-auditioned choir; however students may need to sing for the director for voice placement purposes only.  The only prerequisites are passing grades, a great attitude, and a love for singing. 

    Cantabile (6th period) - (no change) A highly competitive non-varsity treble choir open to students in grades 10–12. This is an auditioned choir whose prerequisites are passing grades, a great attitude, and a love for singing.  Students are also expected to have an intermediate skill level in both singing technique and sight-reading ability.

    Chorale (3rd period) - (no change) A varsity mixed choir open to students in grades 10–12. This is an auditioned choir whose prerequisites are passing grades, great attitude, and a love for singing.  Students are also expected to have a higher skill level in both singing technique and sight-reading ability.

    Colla Voce (4th period) - (no change) A specialty, smaller mixed choir that sings a variety of music, including jazz, Broadway, pop, and madrigal styles. This is an auditioned choir whose prerequisites include stage presence, sight-reading ability, strong vocal ability, passing grades, a great attitude, and a high degree of responsibility.  This group requires much time and dedication from its members.
