Winter Concert Solos!

As I told many of you today, auditions are HARD. I am SO proud of everyone who was brave enough to do it- if you didn't get a solo today, you WILL- it gets easier! You all sounded awesome and Mr Wytheand I had difficult decisions to make!
If you got a solo, please do your best to learn it for next week.

Bigelow Beats 2015

Dear singers,
THANK YOU for coming out to auditions!  The gift of hearing you sing is always special- thanks! If you aren't on the list, I STILL LOVE YOU, and encourage you to reaudition in the fall or spring. Not getting in can be discouraging- don't let it stop you! You are awesome, and I can't WAIT to have you in chorus in the fall! WOOO CHORUS!

If you are on the list, please remember that you are required to enroll in chorus as well. WOOOO CHORUS!

6th Grade Solos!

Great job everyone! I will just cut and paste the email I sent the entire faculty this afternoon:
I just wanted to share with you all a highlight of my day: We had solo auditions in 6th grade chorus and only a few kids signed up. Then they started encouraging each other and a TON of kids got brave enough to do it! The kids were super sweet and supportive of everyone, and seeing them all cheer for each other warmed my heart. If you see a 6th grade singer today, give them a high five. And a big thanks to amazing judge Mr. Fin!!
