Bartlett Concert Choir and Bear-a-Tones have special guests coming in next week for a choral master class. We are excited to have "Cantus" men's vocal ensemble working with our students on vocal technique and advanced ensemble singing skills!
Cantus performs at 7:30 pm on Friday, October 6th, at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts' Discovery Theater. Tickets can be purchased online at the Anchorage Concert Association website. More information here: https://www.anchorageconcerts.org/17-18-season/cantus
Reminder: WEDNESDAY, September 27th is the last day to record an All-State Audition for submission. You must have your recording completed and all three forms turned in to be entered into the competition.
Fall Concert – Tuesday, October 17 – Bettie Jean
Student call time is 6:22 pm – students should arrive a little early so that we can begin warm-ups on time. This is part of the concert etiquette grade. Have all personal business, including restroom visits, taken care of before meeting in the auditorium. There will be another restroom break after warm-ups and before the concert begins. All choir students are required to stay for the entire concert and sit with their choir group.
Doors open for audience seating at 6:45 pm. Thank you for understanding that we cannot seat family members early. The concert begins at 7:00 pm and will be over before 8:00 pm.
concert performance is our major test grade of the year, worth 200 points + self-evaluation the next day worth 25 points.
Students will have a combined rehearsal
during the school day (4th period) on the 17th.
All choir students are required to attend the rehearsal and the
students who have a pre-arranged absence or those with extreme illness or
emergency will be excused and allowed to do a make-up video performance.
We are working with a new grade book software program this year, and I did not set up two of my assignments correctly in a few classes. (There is one little check-box I ticked on those two when I should not have.) It caused many students' grades to look very low due to my error. Thank you to the couple students and parents who notified me of this. I have corrected those assignments in the grade book and updated grades yesterday evening.
If you ever see anything that looks awry in your student's grade again please email me. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
