Harpool Choir Notes

"it's more than just notes on a page!"

Winter Concerts Rang in the Season!

We couldn't be more proud of the performances at the Winter Concerts this year. Our singing longhorns sang with conviction, beauty and poise. Our sixth graders and the first annual combined concert, Cool Yule with our Elementary schools was a HUGE success. In true longhorn fashion our Concert Guys and Gals impressed our guest and gave them a great picture of what it is like to be a part of the Harpool Choir Family.

Season singing continued with our 7th and 8th grade concert at Lamb of God Lutheran church which proved to be a beautiful space for this festive concert. The concert was packed with traditional favorites and toe-taping choreographed numbers that filled the hall with holiday joy! Below is a link to the concert if you want to hear this beautiful evening of music.

Now our singers are on to competition season in the choir room getting ready for UIL, Spring Show and our trip to San Antonio! We are so excited about the growth each choir has accomplished and are looking forward to a very rewarding competition season with our singers!

Harpool Choir Winter Concert 2015

Choir Cares by warming feet and hearts this holiday season!!

Our students had two wonderful opportunities this semester to give back to their community and represented our choir family so well. We collected socks in each class to give to the homeless and our students, in true longhorn fashion, stepped up to the plate and gave TONS!!! It was so nice to see our students thinking about others and showing the spirit of giving this season.

We also shared the gift of song with Good Samaritan Nursing home. We were excited about the amazing turn out on a Saturday. The residents were all smiles as our choir students shared their talents with our special seniors. We had representatives from EVERY choir in attendance. The students shared songs from their Winter Concerts and traditional carols.

Choir LOVES Mr. Wally our head custodian at Harpool. Mr. Wally always has a wonderful smile on his face and he and his team serve our Longhorns in A HUGE WAY by keeping our building spic and span! We wanted to make sure they felt our appreciation this holiday season. Again our singing longhorns gave from their hearts and we collected enough money to give EVERY member of Mr. Wally's team a nice gift card. Varsity Men had the opportunity to present Mr. Wally with a christmas tree with gift card ornaments and rousing rendition of Feliz Navidad! WE LOVE YOU MR. WALLY!! Thank you for all you do!

Our private voice studio, led by the amazing Meredith Tompkins, had an incredible winter recital in the transformed choir room! EVERY student sang beautifully and with great stage presence and musicality! Mrs. Tompkins does a FANTASTIC job with these singers and we are so glad to have her on our team! Yummy christmas cookies and hot apple cider rounded out this wonderful evening of music making! If you would like your student to take advantage of the great opportunity to have individual instruction with their voice please contact Mrs. Tompkins to see she has availability in your child's class period.
