Vocal Music

September 28, 2015

Mr. Doran

What a great start to the new school year.  Our students have been rehearsing hard for upcoming concerts and honor choirs.  We have 48 total singers in this year’s high school choir: 12 Sopranos, 14 Altos, 6 Tenors, & 16 Basses.  They can be broken down into the following grade levels: 12 Seniors, 6 Juniors, 19 Sophomores, & 11 Freshmen.

The singers have elected their peers into leadership positions within the choir and this year’s officers include: President – Grant Moles, Vice President – Sopha Kongmanyvong, Treasurer – Nancy Ramirez, Secretary – Marissa Borrenpohl, and Reporter – Courtney Klaasmeyer.  Congratulations to our officers!

Students auditioning for the Nebraska All-State Honor Choir are Grant Moles, Sopha Kongmanyvong, Eddie Li, Schyler DeFreece & Courtney Klaasmeyer.  They have been working on the music since school started.  If they make the auditions, they travel to Lincoln during November 19-21 to participate with 450 other vocalists in one of the best honor choirs in the nation!  Wish them good luck!

The annual JCC Vocal Music Pie Night will take place October 20 in Tecumseh.  Middle school & high school vocal students will be performing their fall songs in the auditorium and then you get to eat pie in the cafeteria.  Families of students with last names A-K are asked to bring 1 pie to be served at the nights function.  

Our annual candle sales will take place Nov. 23 – Dec. 4.  We will use the proceeds towards a new electric piano for the Cook site.  This piano would be similar to the one we use at the Tecumseh site and gives Mr. Doran the capabilities to record all of the music being rehearsed in choir.  It’s like having a full-time accompanist at your side.  The features of this piano allow us to make recordings so students can take their music home to practice. Thank you to all who have contributed to our music students.  We are an active music department and your assistance is greatly appreciated!
