High school auditions for 8th graders!

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!

Karaoke Competition!!

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.

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.

Results will be announced by  April 17th. First second and third place winners will receive a $25 iTunes gift card!

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/).

If you have questions please feel free to email the directors (Mr. Baker – bakerd@mcsin-k12.org; Mrs. Manglos – mangloss@mcsin-k12.org) or email Mr. Norwood or Mrs. Armington.

ISSMA Cancellations


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)!
