Solo & Ensemble Music Performance Assessment

18 01 2009

HERE WE GO…yes, it is time for Solo & Ensemble Festival again! It is hard to believe that we are half-way through this school year already and just about to perform for district solo & ensemble! PLEASE ask any chorus student about our schedule of performances coming up later this month and plan on supporting our students. You can support them in numerous ways by: attending their performances; chaperoning; assisting with rehearsals; encouraging practice time at home; and always-prayers!
ALL of the Forest Hill Choral students will be participating in the festival being held at the St. Andrews School in Boca Raton, FL from Jan. 29th (thursday) – Jan. 31st (saturday). Please keep us all in your prayers as we approach our first festival performances of this school year! The students have been working hard to prepare and I know they will continue to make us proud!

STUDENTS – PLEASE take advantage of the SOUND FILES set-up for YOU by our very own Mr. Requeny on this blog. This is to help YOU practice at home at your convenience! Thank you Mr. Requeny – we are very excited!!!!

Congratulations All-State Students…

Just when you thought we might be “taking a break”, of course NOT! The following students represented Forest Hill at the 2009 Florida Music Educators Association’s All-State Conference: Candace Burrs (9-12 Concert Chorus), Idalia Lopez (Women’s Chorus), and Robert Rodriguez (Men’s Chorus). These students traveled to Tampa the first weekend of January with parent chaperones, Mr. & Mrs. Lopez (THANK YOU, chaperones!). They had a successful trip and remarkable learning experience during their rehearsals/performances with guest clinicians. Way-to-Go, Falcons!

A special “Falcon Congratulations” goes to Ashlee Newbold (Class of ’08) for being awarded this year’s Florida Vocal Association Elaine McNamara Scholarship to an outstanding freshman music education major. Ashlee was recognized at the Friday night all-state concert in Tampa. We’re proud of you!

Happy New Year, Falcons!

I hope you all enjoyed time with family and friends during a well-earned holiday break!! THANK YOU parents, choral fans, and especially students for another wonderful holiday concert! Congratulations D20 on a successful holiday season and thank you ladies of Les Femmes for your nursing home performance! You all touched many lives this season and gave audiences a performance they will never forget.

Thank you for all you do to bless my life daily! I’m proud to be a Forest Hill Falcon! I wish you health, happiness, and many blessings in 2009 !! May the Lord Bless You & Keep YOU!!

Happy New Year! Mrs. P.

Welcome to the FHHS Choral Department ! We are excited to present our FIRST site to help keep past and present falcon singers informed of choral department events. Please help spread the word and let others know that they can now look up dates and information regarding this year’s choral department concerts, productions, and festivals.
