Jr. High Music News

We have been in school almost a month already.  Your kids are really rockin’ in music class.  I must apologize to all of you for the “Cups” song.  I am sure your kids have been practicing and showing off their mad “cups” skills.  I promise you, I did tell them that lunch in the cafeteria and the dinner table were probably not the best place to practice.  However, I am totally impressed with their passion for perfecting this song.

Why are we learning the “Cups” song?  Well, we will be performing it, along with all other choir students, about 200, at our upcoming show.  This year’s show is called “Let’s Go to the Movies”.  It will be performed Nov. 14 and 15.  Our annual fall show has now become a tradition for our school.  I am hoping that many of you have attended one of our shows.  If not, you are in for quite a treat.  It is a show full of singing, dancing, costumes, props, lighting, and AWESOME performers.

The Jr. High Choir this year will be performing a medley from “Footloose”.  Their costume needs to be all black clothing with a pop of color. The black can be pants, leggings, skirts, shirts, etc. The pop of color can be tights, belt, socks, hat, suspenders, leg warmers, etc.  They can have more than one colored item, but I want only ONE color.  However, their shoes need to be crazy and colorful.  Other costume needs will include black pants (which can be the same) and a white shirt.  We will be wearing this for our opening number.  Black pants will be worn every time your child appears on stage.

One of the students’ favorite things about the show is the commemorative t-shirt that the students get as part of their costume.  The t-shirt features the show emblem on the front and on the back is a list of everyone who participated in the show.  They will wear them for a couple of their songs in the show.  However, these shirts get a bit pricey.  To cover the cost of the t-shirt and any other props that your child will be using, I am asking for a $15 costume fee from each student.  Of course, if this is a problem, I will not deny your child the opportunity to be a part of the show.  You can send a check with your child made out to BHS Choir and they can give it to me OR you can drop it with Connie in the Middle School office.  If this could be done by Oct. 17, that would be great!

And just a heads up, we will begin selling tickets for the show Nov. 3.  THIS SHOW WILL SELL OUT!!!!!! Ticket prices will be $8.  IF there are tickets available the night of the show, they will be $10 at the door.  This is the only concert of the year that we charge an admission fee.  It is our primary fundraiser for the choir department.  Again, if this is a problem for your family, there are ways to work around this.  I will need LOTS of volunteers to usher and room monitors in the classrooms.   If you are interested in helping or have questions, please feel free to email me at or call the school at 228-2266 and leave a message.
