WHEW! What a great start to the school year!
Our choir students did a commendable job of learning several languages for the Fall Concert, while also being knee-deep in preparations for the musical!
We're all having a hard time leaving "Shrek" behind. It's a show that will always be the source of endearing memories. Everyone involved was a superb example of positive synergy. The recurring compliment that I keep hearing around town, is that EVERY aspect of this show was of the highest calibre. So "Shrek" folks - remember how good it feels to work hard and to work together and get such fabulous results. You can do that in all of your endeavors.

WSMA STATE HONORS CHOIR
High school vocalists wishing to audition for the 2017 State Honors Choir have until December 2 at 11:59 pm to register for this opportunity. Go to wsmamusic.org and follow the prompts. You'll need to choose a voice part.
Also, have a credit card ready, as there will be a $25 registration fee. Be sure to select the February 11 Middleton audition date.
This is a long-standing choral opportunity of very high calibre. It is essential to prepare for this audition. Sight-reading is an important aspect, and also a well-learned Class A or B solo. Students are selected from many audition sites throughout the state. The Honors Choir will be expected to learn very difficult choral literature in a short time at a 3-day camp at UW-Green Bay in mid-June.
