Finals Week Updates!

Hello Singers,

Best of luck on all of your finals this week! 
A few important updates:

1)  Choir Final Assessment Due Monday!
Email it or at
All recordings must have the following:
 - 1 Major Scale of your choice
- 1 Chromatic Scale (recommend all ladies start on G, boys on E)
- 1 Song with recording either: My Heart Is Offered, Sicut Cervus, or I Know A Young Maiden

1) It is still not too late to join Jazz Camp or SIMC for Summer 2017 

Jazz Camp open to all singers (June 19-23)

SIMC music camp HS counselors (June 26-July 14) 
Come and sing...whatever week or weeks you are available

3)  Create for yourself a "choir summer goals" sheet or journal
The summer offers a great time to practice your singing and listen to recordings without the intense commitments that you have during the school year.  I encourage you to set tangible goals that you can work on over the summer, so you can come in for September more advanced then you were in June.  This is especially important for new section leaders!  If you want your section to must improve!!

4)  I am THRILLED to announce that our Voices and Strings Masterwork for Fall 2017 will be Gabriel Faure's Requiem.  I will have many more details to come in the next couple of weeks!  To get you started, please check out the sample video on Youtube (complete with digital sheet music!!)
Have a great final week!
-Mr. Raymond
