SENIOR CHOIR – MASSED CHOIR FESTIVAL

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

As you are aware, this term the Senior Choir is participating in the annual WA Primary Schools’ Massed Choir Festival, which will be held at Perth Concert Hall. The students have been working hard learning the songs for this festival. I know that some parents know the songs almost as well as the students! It is important that they continue to use their CD’s, lyrics and the music blog, which has other important information to assist them in rehearsing the songs and choreography in their own time.

Cluster Rehearsal Details

Students will have lunch at 10.30am before leaving school at 11am.

Students may bring a drink bottle (containing water only) and snacks in a disposable container to have at the conclusion of the rehearsal. Please do not order lunch from the canteen on this day, as we are not eating lunch at the normal school lunchtime.

Students need to wear school uniform- school skorts or shorts, school T-Shirt (not faction colours) and school jacket.

Please ensure all jumpers and drink containers are clearly labelled with the student’s name.

Tickets

Information regarding online ticket sales for the festival and ordering of DVD’s will be coming home soon. The event has been a sell out in the previous 4 years that we have been involved; make sure you get in quick to avoid disappointment. 

Concert Night Uniform

Students will be required to wear their purple school shirt, long black pants, black closed in shoes (can be joggers, etc. they don’t need to be shiny black shoes) and black socks for the event.

Please Note: There are 3 permission forms for the 3 days attached to this note as well as a photo permission form. Please complete ALL notes and return them and the money to the slot labelled “School” at the rear of the office by Monday 20th August.

There will be further details in regards to the Technical Rehearsal and Concert Night closer to the dates.

Congratulations to Owen and Alayna who have been chosen to audition for the compere and soloist roles at the concert. Good luck!

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you at the Massed Choir Festival!
