UPDATE 6/12/19: Due to space constraints, parents will need to wait in their vehicles while the students perform. The will not be able to attend the performance. Sorry.
On June 13 at 6pm, a small group of members of the West Chorus has been invited to perform for the installation of Linda Newsome as president of the Taylor Rotary club. The Taylor Rotary has sponsored the Turn Off The Violence event the West Chorus has been a part of for over 20 years, as well as donated microphones, sound equipment, and scholarship money for choir students.
Cardinal Singers, 8th grade Men in Black, and selected soloists have been invited to perform. It is very important that we have every member who commits to performing at the gig. Please return this permission form as soon as possible.
DATE: Thursday, June 13
TIME: Arrive by 5:45pm, finished by 6:30.
PLACE: Lakes of Taylor Golf Course Clubhouse, 25505 Northline Rd, Taylor
SINGING: Les Miserables medley, Star Spangled Banner
WEAR: Chorus uniform
I am unsure if parents will be able to watch or not, as it is during the Rotary event. You may need to drop off and pick up your child. As always, watch WestChorus.com for updates and information.
The school year is winding down, but the West Chorus is rocking on! The students in each class took a 4-day intensive guitar training course using the Little Kids Rock method. Mr. Martin attended a training session in March, and was granted a classroom set of 15 acoustic guitars, picks, a tuner, and gig bags. The students learned 4 chords on guitar: G, C, E minor, and D, and can now play along with thousands of songs! The students can now also use the free resources at LittleKidsRock.org to continue their study of guitar, or learn bass, drums, keyboards, or ukulele at home.
If you're interested in purchasing a guitar like the ones we used in class, here is a link. For a better variety, I suggest going to a local retailer - Mike Carey Music in Wyandotte is my favorite!
