Sturgis Notables is the Sturgis East 9th and 10th grade chorus.
Who should join? This is the only Sturgis music group that is not extracurricular. To join, 9th and 10th grade Sturgis students can choose Chorus 9 or Chorus 10 during the course selection process for their electives. Anyone is welcome!
What does the group sing? This group sings a variety of choral repertoire which can vary depending on the students who sign up for the course. A typical program will include one popular song, one song in a language other than English, and one song of a more "serious" or "ballad-like" nature. The group has sung SSA, SAB, and SATB choral arrangements accompanied and unaccompanied.
When does the group meet?
I am happy to share that we have gotten approval to hold chorus rehearsals on Tuesdays after school outside of the West Campus between the hours of **3:30-6:00pm (starting next Tuesday, Sept. 29)! Unfortunately, the East campus does not have an outdoor space which can accommodate rehearsing outside. This means that students who are hybrid on Tuesdays will need to walk (or drive themselves, or have a guardian drive them) to the West campus. Note that students should not drive other students at this time. Students who are remote on Tuesdays will need to arrange transportation to and from the school. Students/guardians will need to complete and return the driving waiver prior to rehearsal in order to attend. (Digital submission is encouraged!)
**Note that the exact time of the rehearsal may be from 4-5 or 5-6, with 3:30-4 being a time for one on one instruction or team building depending on how many students show interest in participating.
