Extracurricular Music Groups

"Addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." (Eph. 5:19-20)       

There are 6 OPTIONAL groups at different levels for students to be involved in. These are 4 choirs, two instrumental groups, and the option for students in Gr. 6-8 band or choir to participate in the WSMA solo & ensemble festival. 

 

(follow the link below for specific information). 

1)  Extracurricular Music Group Expectations  page

2) Please turn in Music Participation Contracts before the group's first rehearsal. The contract is the last page of the 2019 Music Handbook.(Kindergarten - 4th grade teachers will forward it to Miss Bremer.)

Specific group or class information can be found below. The Master Music Schedule page which includes all the groups' scheduled times is to the right. 

Children's Choir (Gr. 1-2): (printable procedure page)  Students are picked up outside their classroom at 3:15 pm. We have a snack/break time until 3:35 pm in Miss Bremer's classroom. (Please send a snack and/or drink for your child if you like. No snack will be provided and snacks can't be shared due to allergy concerns. Water will be available.)

Then we go to the choir room in the church undercroft (basement) for rehearsal. Before a performance, we will often go to the church to practice in the space we will sing. At 4:15 pm we will meet you in the carport entrance for pickup. The first day, please come inside. After that, you may drive up under the carport to get your child.

**Please let Miss Kim know if your child will go to extended care after choir. **

***Kindergarten students are invited to join starting April 14 to sing at the Spring Concert.***

PraisePower (Gr. 3-4) on Mondays:  Choir members will eat upstairs with their classmates in the FLC. At 11:35 they will rehearse in the undercroft choir room until 12:00 pm. 

JiVE (Gr. 5-8) on Wednesdays: Choir members will be dismissed before/at 12:08pm to eat in the FLC. They will then go to rehearsal at 12:30 pm in the undercroft choir room. After sections are determined, each week a different section will stay for 10 more minutes to work on their specific parts. Mrs. Kari Schwartz will again direct JiVE. 

Chapel Singers (Gr. 6-8) on Mondays:  This is a relatively new group. We hope to split into smaller groups that lead songs during chapel. Singers will check in with their homeroom teacher and then go to rehearsal from 8:10-8:40am pm in the sanctuary. Each group will sing once per month.

JuBellate (Gr. 5-8 handbell group) on Mondays:  Bell players will leave before/at 12:08pm to eat. They will go to rehearsal from 12:30 - 1 pm in the sanctuary.We need some new bell players in JuBellate - if you haven't tried it yet, this is your time!
