    Musical News
    This years musical is "Into the Woods"....a fantastic and humorous musical with characters from some of the best loved fairytales.  In each of their stories, Little Red, the Wolf, Rapunzel, Jack, Cinderalla, their Princes all have to travel into the woods, where their stories become intertwined with the main story which is the Baker and his Wife, who want to start a faimly but have been cursed by the wicked Witch and need to retreive the ingredients to break the curse.
    An informational meeting will be help on Tuesday, Jan. 22 after school in the music room, from 3-4:00.  Come learn about the story, the characters, the music and sample rehearsal schedule and what you need to do in order to audition for a role.
     

     There will be a meeting for all those interested in being a part of the crew in February

     

           As choral directors, we take pride in our students and the many opportunities that we can provide for our young musicians here at SMS.  Participation in our program offers an experience that will benefit our students for the rest of their lives.  Self-discipline, commitment, cognitive thinking, and working together with a large group are just a few benefits of participating in such a program.

                Our goal is to educate the students in musical skills through theory exploration and quality performance experiences.  The 7th grade meets every day, all year.  The 8th grade program offers two full-year options, with students choosing regular choir or auditioning at the end of their 7th grade year for Select Choir. 

                The handbook, which includes all classroom rules and expectations, can be found by clicking on the link at the left of this page.  Any forms or other informational material will continue to added here as the year progresses.  The concert schedule, as well as all music related events, can be found by clicking on the calendar. For quick reference, the 3 concerts all groups are responsible are posted below:
