Driven Coffee Roasters Fundraiser EXTENSION
Two weeks ago, we began our 4th fundraiser to help students off-set their Basic Support Fees, Uniform Fees, & Trip Fees: Driven Coffee Roasters! All information concerning this fundraiser can be found on our website at www.grissomchoir.com/fundraisers and was discussed in class. Students interested were given physical order forms, as well as a handout specifying step-by-step instructions for how to sell. This fundraiser has the potential to sell really well as tea, popcorn, and k-cups are also found on the brochure! Due to the Winter Weather school cancellations, we are pushing back the due date for this fundraiser to allow students more time to sell. The new deadline is January 30th/31st!

Grissom Choir Honor Choir Participation
This spring, all 4 Grissom Choirs will be traveling down to the Birmingham Metro Area for 2 different Honor Choirs:
Men’s & Women’s Choirs: NEXT Monday, January 29th: University of Montevallo’s ChoralFest!
Concert & Chamber Choirs: Monday, February 5th: University of Alabama in Birmingham’s Honor Choir:
These honor choirs are designed to affirm the participation of young singers in the vocal arts. The choirs are comprised of high school students throughout the State of Alabama. Students work closely with the festival clinician in intense rehearsals focusing on musicianship skills, voice building, and ensemble performance. The choir also rehearses and performs side-by-side the collegiate choirs. Students will experience concerts and masterclasses, and will perform with seasoned professionals on traditional and exciting new choral repertoire. A more detailed letter per honor choir has been emailed out across the past 2 weeks with all information, as well as handed out in class (Concert Choir will receive a physical copy on Tuesday). Please mark your calendars for these days!!
