Elementary Choir

2018-19

Attention ParentsPersonalized souvenirs will be available at the performance site.
On Saturday, October 27, 2018 at Southeast High School in Wichita, we will be hosting the SCKMEA Elementary Honor Choir with Jason Sickel as the choir clinician. Your students will love Jason's energy as they work toward a great performance of some wonderful pieces!

Also, it is time to get your drumming on during the teacher workshop this year! Ashley Reichenborn will be presenting: African-based Drumming and Rhythmic Activities for Any Music Classroom. African music is at the heart of American music and resonates with most all young people. Whether there are tubanos at your school or not, this workshop will give you the content and technique to take on rhythmic ensemble work in your classroom. Learn teaching strategies that encourage respect for instruments, musicians, cultural context, and musical parts within an ensemble. Join us in creating a healthy rhythmic and drumming culture within your classroom.

You may send up to six students from your school to participate and work with an excellent choir clinician. The deadline for registering students is September 18, 2018. Teachers will need to pick up their school packets with name tags at 8:00am. Rehearsals will begin at 8:15 AM and the concert will be at 12:00 PM.

I look forward to seeing you on Saturday, October 27 for a great day of music for everyone!
