Choir (Mrs. Miller)
Eastridge Choir Information, Fall 2019
Do you love to sing? If you do, join the Eastridge Choir! Choir is open to all 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. There is no audition or fee required to join. Being in the Eastridge Choir will help you develop your singing skills to a higher level and discover the thrill of performing challenging music. We will learn singing and performance techniques and perform for the school and the community throughout the year. Eastridge Choir rehearsals begin Thursday, August 29, and we will practice every Tuesday and Thursday after school through December 5. Please return the sign-up form to your teacher either before the first rehearsal or bring it to the first rehearsal. This permission slip is a contract that must be signed by the parent/caregiver and student. New members will be accepted through the month of September. New students coming to Eastridge after September will be accepted on an individual basis. Please contact Mrs. Miller if you are interested.
Choir will meet Tuesday and Thursday after school from 2:45 to 3:45. This year we will start choir as soon as students arrive. We will have a shorter rehearsal so there will not be snack time. Since we are out early, you can enjoy your after- school snacks at home. You will need to select either Tuesday or Thursday rehearsal, but you do not need to attend both. Tuesday choir will be learning a different part of the songs than Thursday choir, so we can perform SA, two-part music. Please note that choir will not meet after the concert, except for the party, date TBD. Spring choir registration will begin in January.
ECP is an option for students needing to stay after choir ends. The school office can give you information on ECP. One weekly attendance is required, and more than 2 unexcused absences will cause you to be dropped from choir. If you have been excused from school, you are excused from choir. Please leave a voice message, email or send a note if your child needs to miss choir that week but will be in school for the day. If you have any questions, please call me at 720-747-2256 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Choir is dismissed in the front of the school, by the school office at
3:45 pm. Please pick up your student as soon as possible as I may have other commitments. Choir does not meet when school is on break.
Our concert is December 5th at 6:30 pm for the community and there will be two assemblies for the school TBD. Our required extended combined final rehearsal for both Tuesday and Thursday choir will be Tuesday, December 3, from 2:45 to 4:15 pm after school. This hour and a half rehearsal will be our only time to practice with everyone attending. Please begin to plan now for transportation. If you need assistance, please call me or email to discuss options. I am planning a field trip to a retirement home on the tentative date of December 13. More information will be coming on the time and location.
For the performances we will wear black slacks or skirts and white shirts without logos and dark shoes (dark tennis shoes are fine.) Also, girls may wear black and white dresses. Second-hand clothing stores can be a great resource for dress clothes where they are often in new condition because they are rarely worn. If this is a challenge for your family, please let me know as I can provide help in this area.
If you would like to volunteer to help with rehearsals or the field trip, please include a note on the sign-up form or contact me by phone or email. I’m interested in parents who can help with rehearsals, accompanists, someone to film concerts and parents to go on the field trip.
Hand Chimes (Mrs. Miller)
The Eastridge Hand Chimes choir is starting on September 9 after school. We will meet from 2:45 to 4:00 pm on Mondays after school. You will need a ride at 4:00 pm to participate or you can make arrangements to attend ECP. Information about ECP is in the front office. We will dismiss at the front of the school by the front office. Eastridge bus students are not allowed to walk home. Hand Chimes is open to the first 22 students who sign up from 5th and 4th grade only.
We will play a concert on Thursday, December 5th, along with the Eastridge Choir. There will be two assemblies for the school that week, TBD. We will also go on a field trip to a retirement home in December. This date will be announced soon. For the performances we will wear black slacks or skirts and white shirts without logos and dark shoes (dark tennis shoes are fine.) Also, girls may wear black and white dresses. Second-hand clothing stores can be a great resource for dress clothes where they are often in new condition because they are rarely worn. If this is a challenge for your family, please let me know as I can provide help in this area.
In a hand chimes choir each person has their own individual part to learn and play, so attendance is very important. You must make a commitment to attend regularly and participate in the December concerts, in order to join. A maximum of 22 students will be accepted into chimes choir so please turn in your form to Mrs. Miller as soon as possible to hold your place. Interested students may sign up for Hand Chimes again in January for the spring semester.
