Welcome to choir! The Tiger Pride Chorus is in its second year here at KTA. It is a performance-based class, with four concerts scheduled for the year:
Tuesday, October 1, 2019
Tuesday, December 17, 2019
Tuesday, March 3, 2020
Monday, May 4, 2020
Performances are an important and required part of the curriculum. Please review these dates and put them on the family calendar now to avoid conflicts. If an unavoidable conflict does come up, please let me know before the performance date (hopefully several weeks) with a note, email, or phone call. Such a note must describe the specific reason for the absence, not just that your student will be absent. Because concerts are a crucial part of our curriculum, absences will need approval. Excused absences include illness, death in the family, or other special or unusual circumstances. Not being able to get a ride to the concert is not an excusable absence because there are families willing to offer rides to students in need. A note asking to excuse your student from a performance on the day of the concert or after the fact cannot be accepted and will result in a failing grade for that performance. I will give a make-up assignment to any student who must miss a performance (excused). Unexcused absences cannot be made up and will result in a “0” for that performance.
Concert dress: depending on the concert, students will wear white shirts/blouses and black/navy pants OR their choir T-shirt and jeans. The T-shirt is a different design from last year and so each choir student will need to purchase one. The cost of the T-shirt is $15. If you could send in payment in the next couple of weeks, that would be great. Students can also wear their T-shirts on Fridays instead of spirit shirts.
I’m looking forward to a wonderful year of singing with your student!
