Choirs for Kids!
Friday, August 31, 2018 by Holly Boaz | Uncategorized
I wanted to let you all know that there are some new choral programs for kids happening on Vashon!
This fall (Sept-Dec) there will be FREE after school choirs for 3-5 graders at Chautauqua and for 6-8 graders at McMurray. Both groups will meet on Wednesdays right after school, and will be led by Miss Smith, the new music teacher at CES. For the McMurray students, the theme of this fall's session is "Broadway", and there will even be a selection from "Hamilton" on the program! I've attached flyers for both programs. Please do share with any families you think might be interested. And thank you!
For any kiddos who aren't able to participate in the programs this fall, or any kids who are not connected to the school district, there will be a new, free, community-based program, Vashon Youth Chorus, launched in January that will rehearse on Tuesdays in the late afternoon/early evenings. There will be a group for grades 4-6 and a group for grades 7-12. I'll send out details for that later this fall.
These programs are sponsored by Vashon Choral Boosters, The Vashon Island Chorale, Windermere Vashon, the Beardsley Family Foundation, and many individual donors from our community. If you'd like to be involved with Vashon Choral Boosters raising funds, promoting, and supporting choral education opportunities for Vashon's children, please let me know!
