We're off to the races!  Rehearsals for "Fiddler on the Roof" have begun and the choirs are beginning preparations for their Fall Concert. 
 It's so good to see the students again - and exciting to see how the new mixes work!  Last year's sophomores now have junior clout and are teamed up with the new seniors.  The new freshmen are a good bunch and are producing a very nice sound combined with this year's sophomores. 
Our first concert of the school year will be on Monday, October 19.  The choir students were asked to write down the nationalities that make up their heritage.  The three most prevalent answers were German, Irish and Norwegian. This information provided the basis for the choral music selected for this concert.
The schedule of MHHS vocal music activities is here:  Choir Calendar
The course requirements for choir members are enumerated on the following handout:  1st Quarter Requirements
 The following MHHS musicians attended WSMA State Honors Choir and Band camps this summer at UW-Green Bay, and will be performing at the Overture Center during the State Music Convention the last week in October.

MUSIC TRIPS             
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 will begin on Monday, September 14, in the auditorium.  At 7:00 pm, the meeting will begin with Mr. Janssen presenting details of the band's London trip. At approximately 7:45, the meeting will turn into a fundraiser meeting led by Paul Heinecke.  This portion of the meeting is for any students/parents who are interested in either trip.
