This event will be held at UW-Platteville on Saturday, April 30. All MHHS musicians who earned a starred first rating at the district festival were eligible to move on to the State Festival.
Students now have the schedule, along with a map and other pertinent information. Bus transportation will be provided. Students may also be transported by their parents. This requires a permission slip, which must be in by Wednesday, April 27.
Next on our choir agenda is the Spring Concert. This concert will take place on Monday, May 16. For this concert, Mixed Choir will be wearing robes, so what shows beneath the robe will need to be black. Attire for Concert Choir, Chamber Singers, Chordsmen, Madrigal and Vocal Jazz will be semi-formal.
Following is a list of the music each group is studying for the concert, along with a link to a performance students can use for practicing on their own.

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. This past June we had a great time in New York City, seeing many iconic sites and attending fabulous shows on Broadway.
The next opportunities for music trips will be in 2017. 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 in June of 2017. This opportunity is open to all MHHS students who are members of band, choir and/or orchestra. For the past several years, we have been alternating between a long trip (New York) and a short trip (Chicago) to make it more affordable for students to go on both during their high school years. Since we just went to New York, our next trip will be a shorter one. Later this school year our music students will be asked to propose possible destinations within a 4-hour radius of Mount Horeb. They will then have the opportunity to vote on our next trip destination.
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. The next is a sale in conjunction with Mount Horeb's Village-Wide Garage Sale. If you have items to donate, you can contact Melissa Anunson at: firstname.lastname@example.org
