We are excited to dive into our repertoire in future rehearsals! We'll be working on four songs from The Sound of Music for the first half of the year, and we'll be supplementing our repertoire with short movement songs, activities, etc. You can find practice resources for the Prep Choir in FileShare on Chorister Corner.

Additionally, I'm excited to offer one-on-one check-ins with choristers after rehearsal. We'll begin our first set of check-ins next week. These are optional short mini-lessons and a chance for me to get to know your young singer and work with them more closely. Please keep your eye on your inbox for a scheduling e-mail!
