Sterling Choir Update
12 Aug 2022
We are so excited to see everyone once again and to welcome new members into the Sterling Choir Family. Newsletters will be sent on a regular basis to household emails, detailing events within the choir program. It is our hope to keep you informed and excited about all the upcoming events. Additionally, this newsletter will be a way for us to share and uplift various moments from Sterling Choir members and ensembles.
Next week, students will view our program handbook and will have a form packet that needs to be filled out and signed. Please thoroughly read the information and return the forms as soon as possible. As always, feel free to reach out to the directors with any questions or concerns.
Let me introduce myself:
My name is Dylan Fornshell and I am head director at Sterling High School. Previously, I was the assistant director here at Sterling for three years and before that served as a head director at a high school in southern Indiana. I received my Bachelors of Vocal Music Education and Masters of Music in Choral Conducting from Missouri State University. One of my favorite things to do is travel. I am looking forward to a great year.
TMEA All-State Choir
The All-Region/All-State audition process is about to begin. This is a great opportunity for students to work on their individual musicianship. Each class will be walked through exactly what this process looks like. Members of Meistersingers (6th period) are required, while it is optional for all other students. We are hosting a rehearsal at our school, see below, but there will also be a district wide camp and district wide mock audition. Information will be posted on the choir website as it is made available.
