Welcome to Lassiter Chorus 2012 – 2013!
Thank you becoming and continuing in Lassiter Chorus. It is a great honor and privilege to be your choral music teacher and fellow music maker while you are here at Lassiter. I am excited to get to know you!
In Lassiter Chorus, you will be singing and working with many people you already know and will have a wonderful opportunity to make friends with others unfamiliar to you. We will help you become one of the finest chorus singers around and we, you and I, will do the same for others, too! There will be great music, fun and entertaining music, concerts, parties, trips, service activities, and traditions that you will be hearing of over the next few weeks. The most important thing to know is that Lassiter Chorus is like a home away from home for many students. You will find kids who are very similar and like-minded as you, but yet so very different, too! That is what choral music does for us – it brings us all together in ways that help us do things that we cannot do by ourselves. Choral music transforms our singers in the Lassiter Chorus family.
You can be as involved with Lassiter Chorus as you want to be and I encourage you to jump right in! Be a leader; sing out; speak out; run for office; start finding out how to earn your Varsity Letter; volunteer; recruit your friends to be with you in chorus. There are always ways you can help. The more you serve, the more you grow! Take great pride in being not only the best high school chorus in Georgia but also one that helps others while doing it!
You will have many questions and they may not always arise during class. My contact information is on this letter and I encourage you to use it. Since I am rarely in the chorus office, if you call, please leave a message and I will return it!
Again, I am thrilled that you decided to be a part of this wonderful organization. From our current upperclassmen, to our newest freshmen, I am delighted that you have chosen to sing. I believe that it will turn out to be the best decision you could have made. You are going to have an AWESOME year in Lassiter Chorus!
Sincerely, Brian Williams
