The South School Chrous has three performances this year, and is looking forward to participating in the Londonderry District Choral Festival! Each year a different elementary school is invited to attend, and this year is South School's turn. This event in March brings vocalists of all ages from around our district together to share in an evening of music and appreciation for what our fellow students/teachers are doing - we look forward to seeing at this event, and all of our preformances this year!

 

PERFORMANCE DATES AND ATTIRE:

Manchester Monarchs: Friday, 10/16 - 5PM sound check, 7PM Game @ Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, NH

Winter Concert: Monday, 12/14 - 7PM @ LMS

Spring Concert: Thursday, 4/14 - 7PM @ LMS

 

Attire - Monarchs Game: If your child is participating in the Monarchs performance, if they have a Monarchs jersey or t-shirt they are more than welcome to wear it while they sing! If they don't own Monarchs clothing - please dress comfortably, but a little dressier than they would dress for school. Jeans are OK for this performance! Especially if they're staying to watch the game with parents/family after we are done singing the national anthem.

 

Attire - Concerts: Chorus students should wear something colorful and a little dressier than what they would normally wear for school. Ladies may wear skirts or leggings. PLEASE: no jeans, sweatpants or athletic wear! If a student is involved with band as well as chorus: please dress for band - as the white shirt will blend in easier with the colors than the colors will with plain white for band.

 

Monarchs Performance:

If your child is attending the Monarchs perfromance, you will notice two times listed above. The 5:00 time is for a sound check, and 7:00 is when the game starts (when the national anthem will be sung). We are asking that parents accompany their child to the sound check, and remain with their child through the sound check and until the start of the game. After the national anthem is sung, your child will be released to you and it is your choice whether you would like to stay to watch the rest of the game or take your child home. ---- Look for a letter to be sent home after Friday, September 11th. When all chorus forms have been turned in, ticket information and a detailed letter will be sent home with chorus members.
