Thank you to all of the singers who auditioned. I appreciate your preparation. PLEASE check the whole list. I have changed some people as to which voice part they might sing in a particular group. I will post the lists for Herndon Chorale and Concert Choir next week. So if you would like to be in concert choir, you can just sign up with your counselor or e mail me. If you would like to audition for Herndon Chorale, I will be coming to HMS next week or your can come see me and schedule a time at HHS to audition.

Visions from Concerts Past

 Please ... No Facebook Tagging

Ms. Van Slyke would like to request that choir students who use Facebook please refrain from tagging other people in photos and videos of Herndon Choir concerts and events. Identifying students besides yourself creates the potential for privacy violations and suggests an endorsement of Facebook use in the Choir program. Your cooperation is appreciated. Thank you!
