Summer 2021

A Note from Mrs. Rybowicz

Choir families,

We did it! We finished a truly unusual school year. Or, in other words, we survived... CONGRATULATIONS!
Even with our classroom limitations, DMS Choir was able to achieve great success. Every choir prepared and recorded 3 concerts this year and we were able to perform our Spring Concert in Person! All 7th and 8th grade girls received straight "Superior" scores in their UIL Concert and Sight Reading Evaluation this year. At the LISD virtual Solo & Ensemble concert, every singer received an "Excellent" or "Superior" scores. All year, our choirs have exhibited hard work and improvement and I'm so proud of them!

The 2021-2022 Choir Booster Board was voted in and approved this past Monday. Welcome to our new board!

Elizabeth Bose, president

Beth Currey, vice president

Leah McBain, treasurer

Tonya Ferrando, secretary

Kimberly Byndom, board member

There will be opportunities for parents and families to assist in making this next year our best yet!

I'm excited for next year and the many opportunities that will hopefully present themselves! Our program will be expanding to 6 performing choirs and performances/events are anticipated to be the "normal" again!

As we finish our year, I want to say thank you for a wonderful year!
Have a happy, safe, and relaxing Summer and I'll see you next year!
