Welcome back, singers! We’re excited to start school, and we’ll all be together for the first time at Chorus Retreat on September 13! We are both looking forward to meeting our new chorus members.
New chorus students should plan to also attend the New Chorus Student Scavenger Hunt after school on September 3.
- Chorus Syllabus: This must be signed and returned by August 22!
- Chorus Handbook
- Contains grading policy, concert attendance policy, financial information, and more
In the last week, we have worked with each chorus student individually in order to place them in a choir that best matches their skill level. Congratulations to everyone who was selected to Concert Choir, our auditioned mixed choir.
All members of Concert Choir will be expected to attend the Concert Choir Mini-Camp on August 14-15 (Thu-Fri) from 2-4pm. Those are the last two days of summer prior to the first day of school. Put this in your calendar and plan to be there!
Concert Choir Mini-Camp
August 14-15, 2:00-4:00pm
*Girls plan to stay until 5pm on 8/14 for dress fitting*
All members of Concert Choir will perform “Bridge Over Troubled Water” during the Boone High School Graduation ceremony on Thursday, May 29. We will have a rehearsal on the floor at Amway Center at 6:45pm. Seniors are called at 6:15, so they should provide their own transportation and simply join us for that rehearsal at 6:45. Underclassmen are expected to ride the bus provided and to complete the permission slip by Wednesday, May 30.
Thank you to all who came and auditioned! We had over 30 people audition and it was a tough decision. The performers were chosen in regards to seniority, preparation and song choice.
- If you were chosen, please arrive at 5:45 pm with any equipment you need for a sound check and run through. Microphones will be provided.
- If you are using a track, bring a backup copy and test both to be sure they are working before you arrive.
- Performers should check this document to make sure that we know what equipment you have/need.

The Sanctuary in First Presbyterian Church
Concert Choir students have a performance this Sunday, May 18, at First Presbyterian Church. I sent a letter home and by email recently. Since then, the times have changed!! So please take note…
Call time is now 2pm, and the event begins at 3pm. We expect to be done by 4pm.
All other details about the performance (what to wear, parking, etc) remain unchanged. Thanks for your cooperation!
Chorus Banquet Letter
Chorus students and their families are invited to this annual event! Catered by OLV Cafe, you are sure to love the menu! Dress is semi-formal and the theme is 1920s jazz! You are encouraged (but not required) to dress according to the theme. The cost is $15/per person, and children 3 and under are free.
We’d love for you all to attend! Be sure to place your orders on or before Monday, May 12.
Congratulations to Concert Choir and Belles Voix for outstanding performances at State Music Performance Assessment on Thursday, May 1. Both choirs traveled to Lakeland to perform for choral director
s from universities throughout the country. Concert Choir earned STRAIGHT SUPERIOR ratings, and Belles Voix earned OVERALL SUPERIOR ratings! Please congratulate these singers on an exciting final performance of the school year!
This is where we’re performing
All members of Concert Choir are expected to perform at a special fundraising event for Orlando Health at the Mall of Millenia on Sunday, May 4. The event takes place after the mall has closed on May 4th, so choir members should arrive by 8:30 pm. Everyone should park and meet outside of California Pizza kitchen, near Service Court #3. Please park in the mall’s Employee Parking Lot, labeled E2 on the map attached, outside of California Pizza Kitchen. Water and light snacks will be available for the students. Our exact performance time is unknown, but we should be finished by 10:00pm. We understand this is late to be out on a school night, but due to the nature of the event, we hope that you will plan accordingly.
Variety Show is here! Below you will find a letter (and calendar) of the mandatory rehearsals and performance call times. Please keep this calendar in a visible place so that you can ensure that you know what is happening throughout this busy month. Please make sure you have made arrangements with your workplace/coaches so that you do not have conflicts. Communication is KEY! Information about ticket sales, flower sales and the professionally recorded DVD will be coming later.
DATE CHANGE: The dress rehearsal previously scheduled for Friday, 4/18, has been canceled, and a dress rehearsal has been added to Tuesday, 4/22. The conflict with Good Friday could have been problematic for a good number of students, so we felt this change was a good decision. **Make sure you are available on these adjusted dates!
All students and parents should know the contents of the letter linked above in order to make Variety Show a smooth and successful operation. Thank you!
Combined Men’s Choir at District MPA
Last weekend, all Boone chorus students participated in district-level Music Performance Assessments (MPA) for choruses, hosted by the Florida Vocal Association, at Timber Creek High School. The choirs performed 2 songs each and were judged on an extensive list of musical performance standards. Additionally, both choirs “sight read” music, to demonstrate their music literacy. Both the stage performance and the sight reading were adjudicated by judges who have achieved high standards of musical performance and education consistently in their careers.
Ladies’ Choir and Combined Men’s Choir both received an overall superior rating, while Belles Voix and Concert Choir received straight superior ratings. Congratulations to all the choirs of Boone High School for their outstanding performances!
