We would like to post our top videos so that all of you can see our talented kids! As soon as our judges select the top 3 performers we will post the results! In the meantime leave them some positive comments about their performances. We will review all comments before allowing them to be posted.
Here are two audio recordings that were submitted too!
Along with the change to the meeting for 8th grade students interested in high school show choir earlier today. The parent meeting for parents of potential high school show choir students in the 2020-2021 school year who might have questions regarding aspects of the program, schedules, etc., will still be at 6:00 PM, but at the new Zoom Link posted below.
The meeting with the high school directors has been asked to change from a Zoom Meeting to a Google Meet. With the change, the meeting with 8th grade students interested in auditioning for the high school show choirs will begin at 2:30.
This is an announcement for all 8th grade students at NMS. The high school choir directors have sent out information on signing up for choir next year at Northridge High School! Attached below is a survey form for indicating your interest in participating in the NHS Choir Program. If you have an 8th grade friend not currently participating in a choir at NMS and who you think may be interested in being in choir next year, then please reach out and encourage them to fill out this form.
If you are interested in auditioning to be part of the high school show choir groups (Starlights and Northern Lights) there is a digital audition to be selected for these groups. The audition is made up of a vocal audition, dance audition, and Audition Application form. The directors are requesting that recordings of these auditions be submitted by April 2nd to be considered for a spot in the groups. Information and guidelines for these auditions, as well as rehearsal/practice help can be found at (https://northridgechoirs.com/show-choir-auditions/).
We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but yesterday we received word from the ISSMA Executive Committee and the Indiana State Department of Health that all ISSMA organizational contests will be cancelled through the beginning of April.:( Unfortunately this means that all of the times and schedules and info that we sent home over the past couple of weeks can be disregarded for next Saturday. This does not mean that all of the hard work that the kids have been putting into getting their songs ready for contest will go to waste however! They will still be performing these pieces for you all during the Final Blast concerts in May, so try to keep a lid on your anticipation until then!:) Sorry for the disappointing news! Hopefully everyone can now plan a nice, peaceful, and relaxing Saturday next weekend (filled with lots of sleep and hand washing)!
We’ve had a great week here in choir beast land as we’ve jumped back into the swing of things! In case you are looking for something to do this weekend, the kids (I can still call them that right:) ) over at high school hit the ground running as well as they’ve been preparing to put on their performance of the hit musical “Newsies”! They would love to see you there! Here’s a little bit of info to pique your interest!
This Disney Broadway production is based on the newsboys strike of 1899 in New York City that changed the child labor laws forever. It’s filled with song, dance, drama and romance as Joseph Pulitzer is taken on by a group of ragamuffin kids.
Tickets are on sale through the website northridgetp.ludus.com for $12 each. Tickets at the door will be $15. Bring the family for a night of great entertainment and support the Middlebury theater program.
Good luck to our NHS performers and hope you all have a great weekend!
And just like that we’re in the swing of things again! Coming home today with your daughter/son is a parent letter detailing important dates coming up this semester, so be on the lookout for that today! However, just in case the locker elves happen to get a hold of it, I’ve attached a copy here for your convenience. Here we go!
While you’re hopefully enjoying lots of family, food, and fun times today here is a link to some photos from our Christmas Concert to bring some more smiles as well! Merry Christmas from the NMS Choir Beasts!
Please remember your dinner donations for the Christmas Concert. Our bill will be about $1500 and we can’t afford to pay for all of the kids ourselves. 🙂 Every donation, large or small will be appreciated. You can send in your check/cash anytime this week or next. The sooner the better (for our mental state!). Thanks in advance for your generosity. Mrs. A and Mr. N
