Broadway Cabaret News!!!

Broadway Cabaret Auditions will be Nov. 3 from 9-noon. Please sign up for a time outside of the choir office.  To audition, students must prepare no more than two minutes of a broadway or Disney song. They can sing to an ipod track, youtube (MS. VS will have her laptop) or bring sheet music for the piano. They may not sing along with another singer (the track must be only instrumental) they also may not sing a cappella.

Students auditioning must check the choir calendar for January and make sure they are available for some after school rehearsals through December and the first two Saturdays in January. If there is a conflict with any of those times, please see Mrs. VS to see if it is still doable for you.

Butter Braids Fundraiser

Perfect for the holidays, hungry teenagers, or any other occasion.  Money raised by Butter Braids sales gets applied to student's New York (or future) choir trip.  Every Braid sold adds $5.25 to the student's account.  More information?  Click |here|

 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!
