The Cedar Springs Elementary Music Program Starts 6th YearTop of Page
The Beach Chorus is starting its 3rd year with a wonderful bunch of 50 2nd and 3rd graders. This year is the first year that our founding members of the Beach Chorus 3 years ago are altogether again in the CVC, and the growth these students have made since then is just astounding. We have several performances throughout the fall and winter, with our first major performance for both groups being our combined winter concert at the CSHS auditorium on Friday, December 8. We hope to see you at a performance or two, and cannot wait to sing for you!
Cedar Springs is proud to offer again the Beach Chorus for 2nd and 3rd grades.
This choir will be an extracurricular performance-based group that rehearses once per week. To become a member of this a group, a student must audition for Mr. Shutes. An audition will consist of singing an unaccompanied piece of music ranging in time from 30 seconds to 1 minute, as well as an oral response as to why the student wants to be in the choir.
Attendance is a necessity for this group to succeed. Beach offers many wonderful after school opportunities for students to partake in and please take that into consideration when deciding to join the Beach Chorus because we need every student at every rehearsal. If multiple unexcused absences occur, removal from the group may occur.
The Beach choir will have 3 major performances during the school year. There will be a winter and spring concert, as well as a singing the national anthem at a Cedar Springs high school basketball game (still being scheduled). A detailed schedule is available on our website www.csemusic.weebly.com. Please check these dates to assure that your student is available. There is always the potential for additional performances throughout the year, and if a performance is added, a minimum of a month’s notice will be given.
