Transcript of Warren County Middle School Choir

WCMS Choir
6th grade choir
7th grade choir
Choir meets every other day, on B days.
On A days, you will have gym.
We perform two major evening concerts a year,
a winter concert and a spring concert.
We also perform at the District XIV Concert
Assessment, where we sing in front of judges
and get a score. We have consistently received
ratings of excellent or superior. At this year's concert assessment the combined 6th and 7th grade choirs received a top score of SUPERIOR on their performance and a top score of SUPERIOR in sight-reading!
Other opportunities for performance include:
District Chorus Festival
Hidden Springs
Field trips have included:
Music in the Parks/ King's Dominion/Six Flags "Celebrate the Arts Day"
Seeing the Broadway touring cast of "Les Miserables" at the Kennedy Center
Seeing "Wicked" in Richmond, VA.
Singing at the National Christmas Tree in front of the White House
Marching and singing in the Cherry Blossom parade in D.C.
National Art Gallery
American History Museum
Musicals at WCHS
In choir:
We sing unison, two, and three part music
We learn to sight-read in solfege together
We go over the basics of how to read music
We sing music from many genres and eras, in many languages.
We've sung many different types of music, from:
Spirituals to Broadway
Pop to Ethnic music
Country to Opera
Disney to Vocal Jazz
and many more!
We also have sung in many languages:
English
French, Latin, Spanish, Italian
German, Hebrew, Swahili, Russian
American Sign Language (ASL)
and others!

But don't worry, the majority of our pieces are in English. And for the ones that aren't, we learn how to pronounce the words together.
I'll Make the Difference
Ye Followers of the Lamb
Some of the past WCMS district chorus students at lunch on the day of their concert.
The middle school district chorus rehearsing on stage at Sherando High School the morning of their concert. Lookin' good!
They held auditions for the solos in "I'll Make a Difference" and Dan (one of our 7th grade choir members) got the male solo!

To be in District Chorus, you must be in either 6th or 7th grade choir.
This song (the last one, starting at 11:12 in the video) is called "Ye Followers of the Lamb". Listen to how it gets really fast and has lots of overlapping parts towards the end.
Here is a clip of a song they performed at District Chorus.
