December 13, 2021 Holiday Concert

Hello Choir Students and Parents,

I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving break! I just wanted to send out a reminder that our Holiday Concert is coming up soon on Monday December 13th at 7:00 p.m. in the GLHS Auditorium. Choirs are asked to arrive early so we can warm up in the auditorium space, please make sure students arrive promptly at their warm up time. All students can be dropped off at the GLHS Auditorium doors on the south side of the high school (across the student parking lot from the football field). Parents are asked to wait outside of the auditorium during our warm up times. 

Warm up call times are as follows:
5:30 p.m. Holiday Soloists
5:50 p.m. Select both SA & TB
6:05 p.m. 7th Grade Women's Choir
6:15 p.m. 8th Grade Women's Choir
6:40 p.m. 7/8 Grade Tenor Baritone Choir meet in the High School Choir Room

I will need parent volunteers to sit down front with the kids in the audience to monitor proper concert behavior. Please sign up to volunteer here Holiday Concert Parent Volunteers
Doors open to the public at 6:30 p.m. Students are required to stay for the entire concert, no leaving as soon as they are done singing. Students will learn a great deal from watching other choirs perform.
All choir students will wear our same choir uniform as our fall concert. All pieces of the uniform are purchased on your own, except the ties or accent scarves which are provided by Beagle Middle School Choirs. 
 
All students must wear:
  • Black pants (no sweatpants, no leggings, no yoga pants, no holes in pants), black socks that fully cover the ankle, black shoes (dress shoes or tennis shoes) all visible areas of shoes must be 100% percent black. No open toed shoes or sandals please. Black jeans (no rips or holes) or thick jeggings with zipper and pockets.
On top students must wear either: 
  • A black long sleeve button down dress shirt with black buttons. Beagle Middle School will provide matching ties the day of the concert.
  • A black long sleeve shirt which is either a v-neck or crew neck. Beagle Middle School Choirs will provide matching accent scarves the day of the concert.
All hair needs to be pulled back and out of the face. If a belt, or headband is worn it must be black. Students can wear their GL Choirs black face mask OR any all black mask. For this concert, students are welcome to wear festive holiday hats or headbands (please no light up or hats with bells). 
 
For logistics purposes, students in Select will stay in our standard choir uniform listed above just changing scarves and ties to match. Students in Select will wear our formal Select Uniform (dresses, vests, bowties) for our Pre-Festival Concert.

Please feel free to email me with any questions.

Thanks!
