Falcon Choir Update

UIL Choirs

From the Director

Greetings Falcon Choir Family! There are several UIL events coming up in the next few weeks. This is an important assessment for our choir (think of it like the STAAR test for Choirs) and it is also an opportunity for growth. At UIL there will be 3 judges who evaluate each choir on the quality of our concert performance and 3 judges who evaluate each choir on our sightreading (singing a piece of music we have never seen before). The scores range from 1 (Superior) to 5 (Poor).

I am very proud of the focus and diligent work of our Falcon Choir students!

Mrs. Hatzel

What can parents do to help?

  • Help keep students healthy- lots of rest and hydration!
  • Keep track of uniform- it will come home with them on Tuesday evening and be needed the next day. Feel free to machine wash them (delicates/gentle/low heat)
  • Help students keep up with this schedule over the next two weeks
