Below is a letter I received from the Longmont Chorale. This is a great opportunity to win some good money for performing! I'll be happy to give extra credit to students that participate in this event, regardless of how they place. When they talk about an art song, you may also use a folk song, like the songs we do for our Solo & Ensemble project. If a student is interested and would like help choosing a song, I can definitely help with that. If you take voice lessons, I'm sure that your teacher can help you prepare an appropriate piece. I hope you take advantage of this awesome opportunity! As always, let me know if I can help in any way.
The Longmont Chorale is pleased to once again host a Youth Vocal Competition on October 21, 2017, the weekend before All State auditions. We are encouraging all middle and high school vocalists to consider competing.
This is an adjudicated and critiqued event. It is a wonderful opportunity for students to share their love of music, hone their competition skills, and receive constructive feedback from highly skilled judges.
The application deadline is Wednesday, October 4, 2017.
The number of slots is limited, so please have students apply as early as possible.
You can download a copy of the announcement poster by clicking here. You'll find an application form by clicking here. More information is available on the Longmont Chorale website at www.longmontchorale.org.
We are asking that students select an art song, classical in nature, for the competition.
The first place winner in each category will receive a $250 cash prize and have the opportunity to perform a solo with the Longmont Chorale at our Holiday Concert on December 3, 2017. The winners may perform their art song or a holiday song during the concert. The second place winners will receive a $150 cash prize and the third place winners will receive a $75 cash prize. There is a $15 application fee.
This year we are offering a third category for changed male voices, if there are at least five applicants.
Consider passing this information on to any vocalists or other music instructors with students who might be interested in participating in this competition. Feel free to copy any of the materials as needed.
Please contact me at 720-340-4625 or at the email address below with any questions you or your students might have. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Honor Choir auditions are coming up! There are two different choirs for which our 7th and 8th grade choir students can audition. I've got a special deal worked out with Concert Choir if all of the students audition; parents can talk to students more about it. Regardless of what choir you're in, definitely think about auditioning. Super fun time; ask any other student that's done it before!
Details below in the slide show, as well as under the "Students" item on the menu under "Audition Materials" (or use the buttons below). Contact me with any questions, and I'll be happy to help!
Class fees have been posted for all students at Sunset. This includes all applicable courses for any class your student is taking. Using RevTrak to pay your fees is STRONGLY encouraged. I'll also be doing a prize drawing for students who have turned in their choir fees sometime within the next month, so make sure your choir fee gets paid! The grand prize will be 2 Elitches tickets good through the end of this season.
For those that RevTrak isn't an option for their individual situation, students may bring their fee to me personally, preferably in cash. To see your individual fee, you may use RevTrak, or the student may check with me in class. Most are $20 (6th Grade fees are half as much because their course is only a semester long).
Here are some of the things that class fees go towards for your student:
Thank you for helping us create an engaging educational environment for all of our choir students!
I'm SUPER proud of all of you for putting yourselves out there! I heard a great set of auditions, and it was a hard decision. Auditions and interviews are HARD....don't ever stop taking shots for the things you want to be a part of, regardless of past outcomes! Come talk to me if you'd like some feedback about your audition.
Below is the list of students that will be members of the a cappella group this year, beginning with the first rehearsal on Monday after school.
