Choral Performance Evaluations – All Superiors

Last week, Lassiter Chorus performed in the District XII Choral Performance Evaluations.  All five of our choruses earned superior ratings, the highest scores possible, in both Performance and Sight Reading.  While choruses do not compete against one another, I still say “We Won!”

You can hear our choruses on Tuesday evening at 7:00 pm in the Concert Hall at the Lassiter Choral Cluster Concert!

 Here are just some of the comments the judges wrote to the kids (make sure to look at the last one!)

LGPE Performance Day Schedule

Dear Singers,

The following is the first attempt of trying to develop a plan about how things will work on Thursday, March 13th…LGPE performance day.  I am sure some things will be overlooked so this plan is not definite yet.  Remember, no one connected with this event may change clothes in the Concert Hall.  The following is arranged by performance order:

Women’s Chorale (8:40 – 10:00)

8:20 am – report to Concert Hall already in your performance attire.  After sight singing (10:00 am), you will return to the Concert Hall to listen to other choirs perform.  Quiet at all times.

11:10 – return to main building to change clothes and return to 4th period.  You will miss periods 1-3.

Concert Chorale (10:20 – 11:40)

9:19 (ASE) Change into Concert Attire.

10:00 – Be in Concert Hall.

11:40 – Sight singing ends/during regular 4th period – you may change out of attire and eat lunch (haven’t figured this out yet).  Carry on with the rest of the day unless you are in Choraliers.

Choraliers (12:00 noon – 1:20 pm)

Felicia Inomata, Anna Wang, Emily O’Toole, Ashley Walls released at 11:30 to change.  All Choraliers meet in Concert Hall by 11:50.  Upon completion, you may change, eat lunch or both but you should return to 6th period as soon as possible.

Women’s Chamber Chorale (2:40 – 4:00 pm)

Change into performance attire during 5th period.  If you have lunch 6th period, eat lunch during 5th and change.  After changing, come to Concert Hall and remain until completion.

Men of Troy (4:40 – 6:00)

Vocal Project should report to Concert Hall for Class.

4:00 pm – All men should be dressed in Concert Attire and meet in Concert Hall.  We will find a spot somewhere to rehearse before warm-up time.  I have not worked out food at this point.

Atlanta Community Festival Info

The chorus has been invited to perform in the Atlanta Community Choral Festival by what I consider to be the finest non-professional choir in the United States, The Atlanta Master Chorale (formerly known as The Atlanta Sacred Chorale), conducted by Dr. Eric Nelson.

The event is scheduled for January 25, 2014, at the Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts on the Emory University campus (1700 North Decatur Road Atlanta, GA, 30322.
