ALL 7th and 8th Grade: LGPE

Information and permission slips for Large Group Performance Evaluation went out in all 7th and 8th grade chorus classes yesterday. This is a big performance that all Cobb music ensembles participate in every year. It’s a great opportunity for students to not only be assessed on their musical development and given feedback from experienced professionals, but to watch and hear similarly leveled ensembles from other schools. This is a big performance grade for the spring semester.

Additionally, the Seventh Grade Chorus has been invited to perform with a high school chorus traveling to Atlanta from Virginia next month. This collaborative concert will be at Marietta United Methodist Church in Marietta Square on March 1 at 7PM and is open to the public. This performance will serve as a pre-LPGE concert for the Seventh Grade Chorus; the pieces they sing will not re-appear at the spring concert, so this will be your only opportunity to hear them! A flyer and more details are to follow!

 

LGPE packets and permission slips for 7th and 8th grade are available in the chorus room. Permission slips are due FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 15.

 

WEATHER UPDATE: CAROLING AT THE AVENUE

Due to the weather-based cancellation of all outdoor events at The Avenue, tonight’s caroling has been cancelled. Stay dry and enjoy a warm night in! Carolers, you will get first dibs on signing up for next Wednesday’s morning atrium caroling. Sign-up sheets will be up on the door Monday during class.

Battery singers, I will still see you tomorrow! Weather will be clear by then.
