There will be a REQUIRED rehearsal with our accompanist on the afternoon of Sunday, February 26th in the Grissom Choir room. All participants are required to attend this rehearsal.

Concert & Chamber Choir Cantus Collaboration
This year, The Grissom Concert & Chamber Choirs will combine to perform alongside other high school choirs in a collaboration concert with Cantus, a world renowned men’s vocal ensemble. This concert is sponsored by The Huntsville Chamber Music Guild, and we are honored to be asked to participate in this workshop. There will be a rehearsal on Saturday, March 4th from 10:30 to noon at Trinity United Methodist Church for all Concert & Chamber Choir members. Pizza Lunch will be provided afterwards for all students. The concert will be that evening at 5:00pm. Friends and family of Grissom Choir will receive reduced price tickets for those that wish to attend. Concert Choir has been working on this collaborative concert in class, and Chamber Choir will begin rehearsing after our Legislative performance.
Grissom Choir Course Registration
All students should have (or will soon) received their Course Registration sheets this past week or in the coming weeks. It is my expectation that all current underclassmen choir students will continue to take choir. Should there be any student who does not plan on taking choir next year, please come and speak with me privately. For students who are wishing to audition for The Chamber Choir, please register for the class using Mixed Chorus IV (Course Number: 05110G1004) on the course registration sheet. All other students should register for The Concert Choir, which should be listed as Mixed Chorus III (Course Number: 05110G1003) on the course registration sheet. This is this same Course Names & Numbers as years prior. Based on both Concert & Chamber Choir auditions, I will relocate students back to Women’s/Mens Choir or to and from Concert & Chamber Choir. Should there be any student that wishes to be in The Vocal Lab class (an entire class block that allows students to rehearse their All-City, All-State,Solo & Ensemble, and Pizza & Pop music!), please come and speak with me so that we can have the correct class listed on your course registration sheet! All students will receive a Grissom Choir Recruitment Flyer this coming week which describes these 3 courses in full.
