CHORUS DISNEY TRIP - A TOTAL BLAST!!!

The Mabry 8th grade chorus just returned from a weekend trip to Disney World in Orlando, Florida. They got to participate in the "Disney Sings" Workshop in the Disney Recording Studio. It was such a great experience.
We got to learn how a recording is made in a studio, dubbed our voices over the cartoon, learned the latest version of the Mickey Mouse Club theme song and even got to see Mickey Mouse at the workshop!!!! Mabry has been given the DVD of our performance and it will be played at the May 10th choral concert prior to the 8th grade performance.

A huge THANK YOU to the many parents that volunteered to chaperone this trip. You all were wonderful and greatly appreciated! We could not have taken a trip of this magnitude without your help. I know a trip went well when chaperones get off of the bus smiling at the end. Kids, thank you for being so well behaved in the parks and at the hotel. You received many compliments from the staff a the hotel and in the parks. Give your moms and dads a hug and thank them for letting you have this wonderful experience. I will really miss this talented group of 8th grade singers next year.

7th graders, you can join 8th grade chorus for next year and be a part of the fun.

Parents and Students,
Our Talent Show auditions will be held in the theater for those that bring back this permission form prior to the audition date of Wednesday, March 22 from 4:30 – 5:30p.m. We are looking for all types of acts like, singing, drama acts, dancing, joke tellers, magic acts, instrumental groups, piano, tumbling etc. Any music with lyrics used for an act must be school appropriate. Print out the lyrics for Mrs. Smith. If your talent is a rock band you may audition by video tape of the actual song that your group will play. No vocals for the bands unless the song is an “Oldie” due to inappropriate lyrics not allowed at school. (Instrumental only) If you would like to audition for host or hostess you will need to prepare your opening presentation to the crowd as your audition. Ex. Hi, I’m ??? and tonight we … You may also be creative in this presentation by being funny or doing something clever to get the audience ready for the show.
You will only need to perform the first half of your entire act as we will have judges from school listening for the very best acts. Those chosen will get to perform in the actual show. I am limited to 15 – 17 acts in order to keep the show time down to 1 hour. Winners will be posted outside my door after the judges have had time to make their choices.
If you are chosen to perform you will need to be at the dress rehearsal which is the day of the show on Tuesday, April 11th at 7 p.m. The rehearsal will begin after school and end by 5:45 p.m. so that you can get something to eat and come back by 6:45 p.m. to start the show. If you cannot make these dates do not audition. Tickets will be sold before school and at the door for $3.00 each.

I Movie Meetings

All I Movie meetings will be cancelled until further notice. We are all caught up on our I Movie so there is no need to meet.
I do, however, need a parent volunteer to be our pre-Oscar night party planner. If you can help out please contact me at the school or drop me a note in my mailbox.
