Director's Notes

Welcome to another year at Tuscarora High Schools Choral Music Department. The activities have already started. The Show Choir had "Boot Camp" (as the kids are calling it) last week and ended the week with a terrific performance on Friday. This week a combined group of Tuscarora and Frederick students are singing "Seasons of Love" from Rent at a kickoff breakfast for FCPS administrators and other leaders. Please be on the lookout for rehearsal and performance dates as well as instructions as to how to add a choral department Google calendar to your own personal calendar. Looking forward to getting started. Enjoy the rest of your summer days.
