Marvelous Spring Music Notes!
1) It has been a different year with me going into
rooms on a cart for Gr. K-4. Overall we have been able to do a lot
of great music learning! We have also been blessed this year with
new Orff instruments and ukuleles that will be used fully next year
- I can't wait!
2) Spring Band Concert is
Friday, May 17 at 2pm & 6:30pm. Hear the Beginning and Concert
Bands and look for more details to come!
3) Audition dates for
regional groups -
Milwaukee Children's Choir (MCC) is holding auditions
for their choirs. They have many choirs for different ages and
abilities for Gr. 1-12. Info at https://milwaukeechildrenschoir.org/join/audition .
Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra (MYSO) has many
options for Gr.7-12 instrumentalists and video auditions are due
April 30. https://www.myso.org/. Though they
are time & travel commitments, students learn a lot and have a
lot of incredible opportunities. We have had various St. Paul
students participate in the past.
Helpers are needed for running
powerpoint in chapel/weekend worship services
(all year long). If your 6th grade student (or
older) would like to do it, please contact me. Sign up
https://tinyurl.com/ SPLSignups. With 5 services every
weekend, there are many opportunities to serve. The first couple
times, it is helpful to have a parent sit with them to assist if
necessary. Powerpoints are used, but 10-15 minutes of training will
explain the unique aspects of our setup and things to be aware of
in worship. These can also be used as service hours.
