Concert Chorale Baccalaureate performance information

Concert Chorale's final performance of the school year is at the MPH Baccalaureate Ceremony, which is being held on Friday, June 7, at 5:00 pm under the tent on the upper field. 

Warm up for this performance will be held in the Chorus Room (Amos 6) at 4:15 pm sharp. Following warmup, students in band and orchestra will proceed with their instruments and music to their places under the tent. Remaining Concert Chorale singers should report to the designated meeting places for their respective grades.

We are not wearing traditional Concert Chorale dress for this performance. Instead, students should plan to wear clothing that is professional looking, adheres to the MPH dress code, and is appropriate to both the weather and the event, i.e. dress nicely, please.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Thank you for making this another successful year for the MPH Concert Chorale!

Practice recording for Ritmo

Chorale members:
Here is a link to a reference recording of Ritmo to help with memorization. The tempo is faster than we take it, but it's the right version. Hopefully it helps. Happy practicing! :) Mrs. G
