Overtone Choir Parents

The choir will be singing at the Shelby County Choral Festival on April 24th.  We will leave Forest Oaks at 8:00 and return at 2:00 that afternoon.  If the weather permits we will be eating lunch out on the lawn again this year.

All parents are welcome to attend the day with us at the Metro Church in Birmingham.  You can meet us there or follow the bus.  Then you can enjoy a nice  lunch with your child.

All the schools in Shelby County will be represented.  Each choir will sing two songs and our high school choral directors will be writing notes to give us feedback on our performance. Then, at the end of the day all of the choirs will be singing in a mass choir setting one song that we all have learned.  It should be a very enjoyable day!

The boys will be wearing their tuxedo shirts, bow ties, black pants, and black dress shoes.  The girls will be wearing their long navy dresses and closed in black dress shoes as well.  I’m looking forward to our choir looking really good this year since this is the first year that we have worn dresses!  A big thanks goes to Brandy Pate who has taken the lead on getting these dresses for us and for any alterations!

I look forward to seeing you there!

The 5th graders are having fun learning the choreography to the songs for our musical!

It will be presented at the FOES cafeteria on May 15 for the parents at 6:00 pm.

We will travel through time and sing some of your favorite songs!

It will be video taped so that you can have a keepsake for your child’s memories while at Forest Oaks!

I look forward to seeing you then!
