Treble Makers Chorus

Parent/Guardian Information

Hello Parents and Guardians:

I am excited to announce the start of Treblemakers again this year. The Treblemakers Chorus is a chorus for grades 2-5 and is open to students from all of the Medford elementary schools. The chorus will not hold auditions this year and will be open to all students in grades 2-5 who would like to join.

What We Do:

– Learn singing/ choral techniques such as breath support, posture, diction etc.

– Learn performance skills. We perform twice a year.

– Learn a variety of repertoire- folk music, Broadway tunes, multicultural works, and more

– Have fun!

Where and When:

Chorus will be held on Mondays from 3:00-4:00 at the McGlynn Elementary School auditorium. The first rehearsal will be October 6th.

Arrival and Dismissal:

There will not be a bus provided to bring students to the McGlynn afterschool. Carpooling may be a possibility.

Students must bring the student information form to the first rehearsal completed legibly. If your son/daughter does not have a completed form, he/she cannot attend the first rehearsal. The student information form can be downloaded here.

Attendance:

Attendance is taken seriously in Treblemakers. Since rehearsals take place only once per week, an absence causes a significant loss of music learning. Thus, students are allowed a maximum of three excused absences. Excused absences include a doctor’s note. If more than 3 excused absences occur, a follow-up will take place.

Length:

The chorus rehearsals will be held through January 26th, 2015, culminating with a winter concert on January 27th at Medford High School and a Medford Arts Showcase performance at the Meadow Glen Mall in March. More information will be provided at the first rehearsal.
