The 11th Annual Fox Cities Choral Music Festival is here!
Approximately 130 choral students are about to descend on the Fox Cities P.A.C. for the 11th Annual Fox Cities Choral Music Festival. Hours upon hours have gone into preparing music, learning lyrics and creating choreography. The stage is set, the music rehearsed and the curtain drawn – how did the students successfully get to this point?
Here are six things that students from Chilton and Wrightstown say make their choir a success:
1. Everyone really cares about being in choir. We push each other to be the best we can be and then, once we get there, we all push each other to get even better.
2. A supportive community! We have a great community that is filled with people who love to sing, appreciate the arts and/or who participate in the music department at our school. The ever-growing community support and strong choral program has given us a strong foundation.
3. We have no weakest section or weakest link. Everyone works together as a choir, not as an individual, to reach our end goal. We also help each other; if someone is struggling there are always people to help them.
4. Practice, practice, practice. We always work hard and practice every day in order to become great. We don’t learn things until we get them right, we learn them until we can’t get them wrong.
5. A good choir is made of people who can sing. A great choir is made when people sing and commit to their work. Hours of tireless effort go into truly perfecting a song and we are dedicated to seeing each piece to completion.
6. Finally and most importantly, we have FUN! Choir class is what we look forward to everyday. We always smile, laugh and have a good time. There are no dull moments, everyone gets along and it’s just pure fun.
Thank you to our contributors Madie Hebel and Ryan Vandenboom from Chilton High School and Sam Rodriquez and Grace McMahon from Wrightstown High School.
