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!
Please remind your kids that Monday is the deadline for two events. All choir students were invited to turn in a video performance for our Karaoke contest. Details are posted in their Google Classroom. (This is optional). Videos are due by Monday!
8th grade students who are interested in being in Show Choir in high school must turn in their audition recordings by Monday too. Please encourage your kids to try! Show choir builds lifelong friends, teaches students how to organize their time, and establishes a strong work ethic within a child. Attendance and grades are higher for students who participate in show choir.
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.
Shhhhh Top Secret: 8th grade Choir Parents will you encourage your kids to go the extra mile and complete the audition recordings for show choir next year? A lot of self doubt keeps our students from trying! Usually we bug the heck out of them personally and remind them that they ARE good enough, smart enough, and talented enough to do this, but we can’t get to them like you can! Making the recording takes time and effort…which doesn’t come naturally to middle school kids, so a little prodding from you will help them! Instructions can be found on this feed or in their Google Classroom. These are due Thursday so if you accept this secret mission you better get to work!!!!! Thanks for your help!
This is an optional assignment for our choir students. We have a lot of stars and are hoping to see many video entries. There is a deadline so please pass this on to your child for us.
KARAOKE CONTEST ANYONE?
Here are the rules:
1. Select a song that is OBVIOUSLY school appropriate! With or without accompaniment.
2. Find the best minute and 30 seconds in the song that will show off your voice.
3. Practice like crazy!
4. Make a video of yourself performing the song. Video creativity is a plus!
41/2. There are no other rules so be creative!
5. Attach the video to the assignment in Google Classroom and submit it by April 13.
The top videos will be put out for friends and family to see on the choir website and Facebook. Positive comments by your adoring fans will influence the final decision by two highly qualified mystery judges. No negative comments will be approved for posting.

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/).
