Spring Choir Concert Sat, May 11

We are looking forward to this Saturday’s Spring Choir Concert at CHS! Students have done some excellent preparation this semester, and I know you’ll enjoy seeing and hearing their work.

Students are called to Stretton Hall by 1:00 pm on Saturday, May 11 for a pre-concert dress rehearsal. Students: please arrive very comfortably before 1:00 (plan on 12:30-12:45) and check in with your President. Punctuality is very important. (See lateness policies.) Also, please bring a water bottle and a snack. Concert attire, detailed here, is the same as usual. The concert begins at 4:00pm. It will conclude around 5:30 pm.

Immediately following the concert, please join us for a celebratory picnic on the CHS front lawn (rain location: CHS cafeteria). All students and families are invited to attend.

Each choir member is asked to contribute one item to share. (Our CHS VPA Boosters will provide some additional refreshments.) Picnic contributions should be dropped off in the faculty cafeteria, across the lobby from the choir room. Thank you!

  • Women’s and Men’s Choir: lemonade or iced tea
  • Concert Choir: side salad, fruit, or veggies
  • Select Choir: dessert (cut into individual servings, please)

Please bring blankets and lawn chairs for picnicking, as well as outdoor activities, if you like.

This will be a wonderful way to conclude our year’s work in choir. Looking forward to seeing you all Saturday the 11th!

Select Choir 2019-20

Thank you to all those who auditioned for Select Choir. I look forward to working with each one of you in our choir program next year, no matter what ensemble(s) you sing in!

Everyone who auditioned: We will discuss your audition one-on-one during class time. I’m happy to share feedback.

If you did not get in, I hope you will audition again next year. It’s important to remember that often, very small margins separate those who were accepted and those who were not. Also, remember that your skills will continue to grow next year, and you can enroll in not just one, but two choirs next year, if you like. (Yay, more singing!)

If you are on the list below, please recognize that your acceptance is contingent upon exemplary performance in vocal arts activities in the remainder of this school year.

Everyone, please reach out if you have questions about music courses for next year, or if I can help with your course selections or scheduling at any point.

Below is the roster for Select Choir for 2019-20. Congratulations to new members.

In February 2016, 47 Cheltenham Choir students and 5 adults traveled to Puerto Rico for an extraordinary performance tour. Here’s a video from our wonderful time in Puerto Rico.

We were greeted particularly warmly by our singing colleagues at Ponce High School, who performed for us, fed us a homemade dinner at their school, and reached out to all our Cheltenham singers with open arms.

Find out more about Puerto Rico from our Select Choir President, Erin Kuchler.

In the wake of Hurricane Maria, we are reaching out to assist our colleagues in Ponce. Many are still without clothes, water, and food, and the school is spearheading efforts to rebuild its students’ homes.

Thanks to those of you who have already donated–we collected $73 for Ponce High School at our car wash October 14!

Please keep the donations coming. Choir Director Victor Quiles and his students are extremely grateful for all the help we will provide.
