Sample Parent Letter - acda ccsd honor choir

Dear Choir Parent,
August 2014
Your child has expressed an interest in auditioning for the ACDA / CCSD Middle School Honor Choir.
This choir is made up of approximately 160 of the finest middle school choral students in our school district. The
information in this letter will help you and your child decide if you can make the necessary commitment to make this
one of the highlights of your child’s musical experience here at Schofield.
The auditions will take place at Schofield Middle School on Saturday, September 27, 2014, from 8:00am
to 5:00pm. Students must make their own transportation arrangements. Students will be notified of their actual audition
times by Monday, September 22, 2014. In order to audition, students must be able to attend the rehearsals listed below.
Students are only allowed one unexcused absence during the October 9, 16, 23 & 30 rehearsals. However, attendance is
MANDATORY for November 6, 12 & 13, rehearsals and concert, and no students are allowed to be absent for those
dates - no exceptions. Students must attend several pre-audition rehearsals that will be set at a later date. These
rehearsals are essential to ensure your child is prepared for his / her audition. Students who are not prepared will NOT be
allowed to audition for Honor Choir.
This year the conductor for the ACDA / CCSD Middle School Honor Choir will be Lori Marie Rios, Director of
Choral Studies at the College of the Canyons. The audition process is very challenging. Students must be able to sightread rhythmic clapping exercises, sing back intervals a cappella, and sing their own voice part in an audition piece
against a taped piano accompaniment as if you were singing a solo.
