MLES Knightingales Show Choir Application (please print this and return bottom portion to Mrs. Houston no later than Sept. 3)
When: Thursday mornings 7:15-7:40
Who: 4th and 5th graders
I am so excited about this year and all of the great things that I have planned for our Knightingales show choir! It is going to be a great year. We meet every Thursday morning in the music room from 7:15-7:40. There is a ONE TIME $50.00 donation for each student that is a Knightingale. This covers their t-shirt, music, facility rental for performances, and field trip fees. You only pay this one time, not every month. Please make checks payable to MLES and put “Knightingales” on the memo line. This is due by September 3, 2018.
We will have many opportunities to sing and perform throughout the school year. We only practice on Thursday mornings, with the exception of ONE Saturday rehearsal in the fall. I will get a date to you very soon. This rehearsal will be a lot of fun because I will bring in a professional show choir choreographer and we will learn some fun, new choreography for our songs. We will benefit so much from having this fun rehearsal day! If you have a conflict on that Saturday, you can let me know and maybe your child can attend part of the rehearsal. We can work with you with conflicts. We will have a Holiday Show on December 11 and a Spring Show in April or May. I will send out a calendar by the end of the month with exact dates. We will take several field trips this year to perform. We will participate in the Shelby County Choral Festival in the spring. We will also take trip this year and details will come home by the end of September.
You will purchase one costume for your child and they will wear it for every performance. Girls will order a dress and I’ll email the link when all forms are turned back in to me. They are around $30.00 each. They’ll need them by October. Girls need black flat dress shoes.
Boys will wear a tux shirt with a bowtie It is usually about $25.00. I’ll send a link to order by email. You will need to get a pair of black dress pants and black shoes to wear with the tux shirt. Again, we will wear these all year for performances.
Please fill out and turn in the Knightingales application form and your money by September 3 . We will not have auditions this year to be in Knightingales. Our first rehearsal will be Thursday, September 6. I am so excited about a wonderful year!
