Spring Choir News
The Herrington Hawk Choir
It has been a long time since I got around to sending out some choir information, so here goes!
First of all, I would like to thank you for allowing me to work with your children all year. Attendance has been AMAZING, especially considering we have rehearsals on Fridays! Thank you for consistently being there and picking up on time. There are only three more rehearsals: April 24th, May 1st, and May 8th!
We will have a few performances coming up, so please add these to your calendar:
Saturday, May 2nd, 11:30am: Herrington Spring Carnival
This is our big concert moment! The culmination of several months of rehearsals will take place on the Herrington Stage. We will perform about 11:30-12:15. After that, please enjoy the carnival. Bid on silent auction items (including one of my own), play, eat, and just have fun! Student Council members can do their duty right after the concert.
Monday, May 11th, 4:00pm: San Gabriel Rehabilitation Center
This will be a great opportunity for community outreach! I am asking that we meet in the parking lot of the San Gabriel Rehabilitation Center (click for a map) at about 3:45-3:50. We'll go in, sing through several of our songs, and then be on our merry way. This past August, several of us teachers visited and sang for a very appreciative audience, and they are absolutely thrilled to have students from Herrington come out. I'm hoping this can turn into a regular event for our choir! Please click here to let me know if you will or will not be able to attend.
We are also going to try to sing for some of our younger students during the school day in the coming weeks as a sort of warmup concert.
In case you or your child are curious about our song list, our concert will include the following:
Rise Up, O Flame
Skye Boat Song
Down By the Bay
And maybe also:
Give Me Wings
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me, and I'll try to get back to you as soon as I can!
