Rescheduled dress rehearsals for MS/US Chorus Concert 1/9/19

Since we missed our dress rehearsals today because of the weather, Ms. Hoekstra, Dr. Stegeman, and I met this morning to try to find a good time to reschedule those rehearsals before our concert tomorrow evening.

Tomorrow (Wednesday) Concert Chorale should leave 2nd block class at 10:25 and meet me in the Phoenix. From there, we will walk to the church for our dress rehearsal, which will go through tutorial.

Middle School Chorus will meet Ms. Hoekstra, Ms. Mirakian, and Mr. Huyge in the Phoenix at 11:20 and walk to the church, where we will rehearse "Into the West" with Concert Chorale, then the rest of the Middle School music until 12:15, and eat lunch afterward.

Reminder: warmup in the church basement at 6:20 tomorrow night. Concert begins at 7:00 and will run between 60 and 90 minutes.

If you have questions, please contact me. See you tomorrow! --Mrs. G

"Spelling Bee" rehearsals 1/7 - 1/18

Hello everyone, 
For the next few weeks, we will be working on music for Spelling Bee. I constructed the schedule using the conflict sheets submitted at auditions. 

If for some reason you can't attend a scheduled rehearsal, please let me know as soon as possible so that we can rehearse at another time. 

Also, please remember our time is short; the best way to learn and memorize music is to practice outside of rehearsal on your own. 

Thanks very much! 
Mrs. Gregory

Middle School/Upper School Winter Concert Wednesday, January 9, 2019

Concert Chorale and Middle School Chorus will be presenting their Winter Vocal Concert on Wednesday, January 9th at 7:00 pm in the sanctuary at Pebble Hill Presbyterian Church, which is across the street from the MPH campus.

ALL SINGERS should plan to arrive at the church basement at 6:20 pm to warm up and line up. 

Performance order is: Concert Chorale, Middle School Chorus, Finale (combined MS and US groups). The entire concert should run about 60-90 minutes in length.

Performance dress for Concert Chorale is black pants, black safe shoes, black socks (if your singer is wearing socks), and a white tuxedo shirt. I will provide red bow ties and cummerbunds for the performance. **If your singer has neglected to mention that they need a tuxedo shirt, the least expensive place to pick one up in town is Hobby Lobby. 
Performance dress for Middle School Chorus is black pants (please no leggings) or a black skirt (knee length or longer), a black shirt, black socks or tights, and safe, sensible black dress shoes (please no sneakers if possible). All concert clothing should adhere to the MPH dress code. 

Please contact me with questions or concerns about concert dress or any other concerns relating to the performance.


Many thanks for your continued support of our singers.
See you at Pebble Hill Church next Wednesday evening!
