Hello Husky Choir Family!

Wow! What a strong start to the school year for the Hughes Husky Choir! I have loved being back to learning and singing. I have also really enjoyed getting to know my newest Husky Choir members. It was great to see and meet many choir parents over the last week at the choir parent meeting and open house. I'm glad to have such amazing choir parents backing this program.

In the choir room, students are doing a great job meeting rehearsal expectations and we are preparing for the Fall Concert. Each choir will perform two songs at the October 1st concert. Can't wait for you to hear 'em!

Voice Lessons (All Students)

Taking private voice lessons is an excellent way to improve the many skills built in the choir class on an individual basis. Students who take voice lesson can gain an edge in vocal technique, music theory, sight-reading, All-Region preparation, Solo and Ensemble, and audition preparation! Lessons taken through the Husky Choir program are significantly cheaper than a private studio AND they take place during your child's choir class period; so there is no additions to your busy family schedule.
