Upcoming Events

Concert Choir Performances In order to help us prepare for our contest performance, we will be having a practice performance and KI trip meeting on May 18th in the MJHS gym. Parents please come! Be looking for separate information regarding our Music in the Parks/Kings Island trip. To help prepare for our concert we will be rehearsing after school on Monday, May 23rd in the HS auditorium. Concert Choir members need to be picked up by 5 PM at the HS, and soloists should be picked up at 5:30. Our Spring Concert is on May 24th at 7 PM at the HS auditorium. Parents, please come. Further information will be sent home regarding our May 27th Spring Tour.

Solo & Ensemble Contest Several of our MJHS band and choir students will be participating in the 2011 OMEA District 14 Solo & Ensemble Contest. Each of those students have received a packet of information from OMEA containing everything they need to know about the day. Please read it! Plan to arrive at Madeira MS at least 30 minutes before your performance time, and be sure you dress up for this event. You are allowed to watch any of the other events that day you want, but you must be on your best behavior. If you aren’t, our whole school could be disqualified. Finally, if you are performing a solo, be sure you provide the judge with an original copy of your music with all the measures numbered.

Concert Choir Schedule Changes This semester’s Concert Choir is awesome! We are progressing through our rehearsals really well, and I think the parents should be really excited to hear the end result at our May 24th Spring Concert! Our rehearsal schedule will continue as it is until Spring Break. However, after Spring Break, everyone needs to start coming to all three rehearsals, M, W, F, every week, 2:15-3:15. On Wednesday, May 4th, we will end Concert Choir rehearsal at 3 PM, and have our solo auditions at that time. We will try to end by 4, but will stay as long as necessary.
