    In NAMS 7th and 8th Grade Chorus this week
     
    Wow!  We are really getting closer to the Winter Concert (Wednesday, December 4, 7 PM in the HS Auditorium)!  You can now find some important information about the concert at the bottom of this page (and in your "Schoology-Information to take home folder").  We have our 2 mandatory after school rehearsals the next two weeks. You can find more information about that on the next section.  
     
    We also got our information for the chorus t-shirt orders.  The portal will be open to order until Friday, November 15.  The information sheet is also posted at the bottom of this webpage.
     
    We got our information for the Phantoms Order forms.  That portal will be open through the end of November.  You can find the information at the bottom of this page as well.
     
    7th grade students: This week we will be finishing off "Holiday Sing A Long" and be adding the Choreography to "Grandma's Killer Fruitcake."  We will also be working on Dynamics, Phrasing and Breathing on all of our songs. We will also be having solo auditions in Flipgrid.  Please find the information in Schoology.
     
    8th grade students: We are working on learning the American Sign Language (ASL) translation for "Our Gift for You." We will be singing with the ASL when we perform next month.  We are also reviewing our new songs and new languages.  We will also be working on Dynamics, moving toward the ends of phrases, and vowel matching.
     

    After School Rehearsals
     
    We have arrived at our 2 mandatory after school rehearsals before each concert.  7th grade students must attend on Tuesday, Nov. 12, and Tuesday, November 19 before the winter concert AND Tuesday, May 12 and Tuesday, May 19 before the spring concert. 8th grade students must attend on Wednesday, Nov. 13 (IN THE BAND ROOM), and Tuesday, November 19 before the winter concert AND Wednesday, May 13 and Tuesday, May 19 before the spring concert.
     
    Students should be picked up at 4:00 PM at the bus loop entrance to the building.
     
     

    ShowChoir
     ShowChoir meets after school on Thursdays from 2:30-5:00 PM.  This week we will be auditioning our solos for "Run Rudolph Run."  We will be reviewing our prelearned choreography for all four songs that we have learned.  We will then be working on the notes for "Light." 
     
    The Showchoir sings mostly American Standards (jazz and big band style music) and musicals.  We sing difficult harmonies and do choreography to most if not all of our numbers.  These students should maintain good grades as they sometimes need to miss class in order to perform throughout the community.  If you would like to have the Northampton ShowChoir perform for your event, please contact me at 610-262-7817.  We do need to let students and parents know if advance, so please call at least 5 weeks before your event...Sooner is better than later!
