Event description

Description

Dear Music Colleagues,


This email is for elementary teachers who are interested in MPMEA Elementary Honor Choir. We, Daniel Powers (Lowell Elementary in Everett, dpowers@everettsd.org ) and Kaye Lysen (Madison Elementary in Everett klysen@everettsd.org ), are your MPMEA Elementary Honor Choir Coordinators this year! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask us.


WHAT IS ELEMENTARY HONOR CHOIR?


Elementary teachers audition up to 10 students that are in grades 3rd, 4th, 5th, or 6th to be a part of our honor choir. Selected students pay a $20 fee that includes music and a practice CD. Teachers work with students prior to the concert rehearsing music so that, when the time comes for group rehearsals, the students are prepared. Students rehearse with our guest conductor on Saturday April 20th and Monday April 22nd , with a performance that evening.

HONOR CHOIR CONDUCTOR

This year our honor choir director is Don Clausen, a local choral conductor who currently lives in Bellingham, Washington. He has worked in multiple school districts in Washington State at all levels. He studied at Central Washington University.

FEES
Schools may bring up to 10 students total; this number may increase if fewer schools participate. For each accepted student, there will be a $20 participation fee due by February 1st. You may pay by check made out to MPMEA, Memo: Elementary Honor Choir 2019 AND School name, and include attached invoice when mailing. I am working on a credit card option.

Sincerely,


Kaye Lysen and Daniel Powers
