*A note regarding this year’s audition piece*

At our May 6,2022 MS Choral Executive Board meeting, the board asked Robert Waller, MS Honor’s Chorus Coordinator, to check with our clinician about the possibility of changing the Audition piece to something less challenging.  Robert reported during our General Meeting on May 7,2022 at 10:00 a.m. that he had not yet received a reply from the clinician.  We have since received confirmation that we are moving forward with ” I Saw A Child” as the audition piece.  In an effort to compromise, we will be adding a click track and some other melodic and harmonic support under the accompaniment on the audition track to make the audition process more accessible to middle schoolers.  Robert Waller and Carla Reid, MS Choral Section Chair, will work together to come up with something appropriate that will offer support for entrances, mixed meter sections, etc.  
Those new audition tracks as well as new rehearsal tracks will be available on the website sometime this summer.  Please keep checking for more information.
