FINAL CHOIR REQUIREMENTS
On our Re"choir"ments handout, the Written Work category includes listening to and writing about one song sung by a soloist and one song sung by a choir. The list of choices for each is attached below, as well as the questionaire you will need to fill out. Maybe you'll be inspired to listen to more than one!
The SPRING CHOIR CONCERT was very meaningful and fulfilling! Students, I hope you are feeling a great sense of accomplishment!
I'll leave these recordings up a little longer, in case you'd like to continue listening . . .

TWO MORE PERFORMANCES
An additional choral performance opportunity this year will be the Memorial Day program on Monday, May 30. The band will be playing "Hymn to the Fallen," from the movie SAVING PRIVATE RYAN. We will be inviting school, church and community singers to participate. To get a copy of the music, talk to Will Janssen (437-2400, X2104)
Our final choral performance will be at Graduation on Sunday, June 5. This event is required for members of Concert Choir and optional for members of Mixed Choir, Chamber Singers and Chordsmen.
We will be wearing robes. Report time is 2:00. The ceremony is at 3:00.
Here is a link to the Mansfield University Concert Choir singing our graduation song, "In the Heart of the World."

MUSIC TRIPS & FUNDRAISERS
MHHS music department students have the opportunity to go on a trip of their choosing two times during their high school careers.
The next opportunities for music trips will be in 2017. This time, there will be two:
1) Our band has been invited to perform in the world-famous London New Year's Day Parade on January 1, 2017.
2) Our usual music department trip will take place on June 10 of 2017, and run until June 13 or 14. This opportunity is open to all MHHS students who are members of band, choir and/or orchestra. Our students are currently pondering their votes: Chicago, Minneapolis, St. Louis or Kansas City. Ballots need to be turned in by Monday, May 23.
Fundraising for both the band's London trip and the full music department trip has been taking place throughout the school year. All of our usual fund raisers are now complete. Money will continue to be raised for the London trip.
Regular fundraising for next school year will begin on Monday, September 12, 2016.
will be announced soon!!
