8th Grade Chorus Registration for LHS
Any 8th graders that wish to enroll in LHS Chorus next year need to register for
Mixed Ensemble #54.0221096
Mr. Williams and Miss Rivet will come to our school later in the spring to audition those that would like to be placed in a higher chorus. The audition will be held after school and I will give you advanced notice of the day.
It is possible to take chorus all four years and still get all of your required classes into your schedule. If you are not sure of how to do this come and see me in the chorus room for a sample schedule of all 4 years.
LHS Chorus also offers Men's Ensemble, Show Choir, Girls' Trio, Men's Quartet and All State Chorus.
Chorus will not limit you from participating in sports or other activities. They even take some great tours to incredible destinations, like
- The Bahamas
- New York City
- Washington, DC
- Disney World
- This year they are going to Vienna, Austria
They also present Broadway musicals with the LHS Drama Department and a major classical works with the Lassiter Orchestra.
If you have any questions please call Brian Williams or Jaime Rivet at (678) 494-7878.

If you are attending All State I must have your permission forms and medical forms in this next week. Mrs. Rosengren in the front office can notarize them for you.
If you are staying at the Fairfield in and riding down with Mrs. Smith than I also must have your money for the hotel this next week. Mark the envelope All State Chorus Hotel. The school will cut a check for the hotel prior to us leaving. If you are staying with your parents in Savannah you do not need to send in any money but I do need your forms.

Mabry Singers are getting ready for their Performance Evaluation in March. As soon as I know the exact date of the performance I will post it on my BLOG. It will be either Tuesday, March 8th or Thursday, March 10th.
You will need to return permission forms ASAP being that I only see you once a week. You may give them to me anytime during the week. I will get them to you by next week as soon as I know our exact time and day.
If you have not been at rehearsals and are planning on singing with us you must be at all remaining rehearsals!!! The songs are in Hebrew and Latin so it will take some work for you to learn them. We are also learning how to sight-read as this is a part of the evaluation process. Come join the fun and make some beautiful music together.
