Welcome back to a fun and exciting year. On October 26, 2019
SCKMEA will be hosting the annual Elementary Honor Choir at Wichita
Southeast High School. This year, Matt Hanne will be directing our children's
choir. Matt is the choral director at Wichita Independent School. Mr. Hanne
will bring excitement and energy to our young singers as they prepare for a
fabulous performance that day.
Jennifer Donovan will be leading our teachers through the world of Orff
Schulwerk. She will show us how to use poetry, prose, and visual art to
inspire us as we explore Project Based Learning in the music classroom.
As you consider joining us, 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 17, 2019. Teachers will need
to pick up their school packets with name tags at 8:00 AM in the front foyer.
Rehearsals will begin at 8:15 AM and the concert will be at 12:00 PM.
I look forward to seeing you on October 26 for a great day of music
and fun for everyone!
