The chorus meets weekly on Wednesdays after school until 4:30. Students are selected for chorus based on their auditions in mid-September.
This group performs an evening Winter Concert and a mini-concert at the JSS sing-along in December. Starting in January, the chorus begins rehearsals for Steppin’ Out and then performs in the program in the spring. This is usually a Friday night event, with a tech rehearsal and dress rehearsal during school to prepare us for our performance.
There is a fee to join, but members can choose to participate in the chorus fundraiser to cover that amount.

What we look for during auditions:
Vocal Projection -- Ability to hear singer
Pitch-- Singing the correct notes
Tone/Blend -- Quality of voice/ability to blend with others
Stage Presence -- Good posture and eye contact
Since we have two performances groups, 4th Grade Chorus and 5th Grade Chorus, we have a rotating schedule - each group will meet bi-weekly until the end of November or beginning o December. When we get closer to the concert date, we will start holding combined rehearsals because the two groups will sing as one!
