Choral Celebration

The Muir Lake Glee Club (our junior high choir) is excited to be travelling to Edmonton on Monday, March 18 to participate in the PSD Choral Celebration.  This is an annual event in which schools from our division are invited to come and share their talents.  In past years, our younger choir has attended, but this year we are excited to bring this talented group of girls.

Parents are welcomed to attend the Choral Celebration.  It will be held at the Beulah Alliance Church, 17504 98a Ave NW, Edmonton from 10am-noon.

We recognize our wonderful volunteer pianist, Mrs. Lindsay Eklund for accompanying us for practices and the upcoming performance.  Without her this would not be possible!

…And That’s a Wrap!

Thank you all for your wonderful support of our Christmas concerts this year.  Parents, thank you for helping your children learn lines, getting them here early for the performances, and showing up to cheer them on.  They were spectacular!
In the flurry of everything happening, I failed to thank you, the parents, for raising such fantastic kids!  I have the best job and love working with your children.
Also, I am looking for some pictures………. If you have any quality photos you could share with me of any of the three concerts, I would appreciate it.  I failed to organize a photographer, so have very few pictures from our performances.  I am especially looking for group photos of performances; choir & class photos would be wonderful.  Please send them to me at dgottenbos@psd70.ab.ca.
Thank you & Merry Christmas!
Mrs. Gottenbos

Attention CHOIR & GLEE CLUB

Just a reminder that all choir and Glee Club members should come dressed for their performances tomorrow at the Remembrance Day Ceremony.  Both groups need to wear either black or gray tops without any words.  If you have a choir t-shirt, please wear that.  Poppies will be supplied.

Thank you!

Parkland Middle Schools Concert Band is an after school program open to any Parkland school students in grade 6-9.  Those who have played at least 1 year are welcome to join.  They will meet Mondays at Broxton Park School.  Costs and other details are in the attached information sheet.

If you have never played an instrument but are interested in learning, Miss Brophy will be starting a beginner band after Christmas.

If you have further questions, please contact Mrs. Gottenbos or Miss Brophy at Broxton Park School.

 

Attention All Singers!

If you had not considered joining choir, but would like to add it to your schedule, please talk to one of the counsellors at the high school to rearrange things or talk to Mrs. Gottenbos for more information.

Also, just to make you aware, there will be auditions for one of the MCHS Choirs this Friday.  Mixed Ensemble is their only select-voice choir where incoming students are required to audition for admittance to the group.  They’re hoping to add a significant number of singers to the group this year (especially men) as they are losing a lot of grade 12s.

Grade 9 students are able to audition between 3:30 and 5:00 on Friday, June 15th.  Auditions are in the music room at MCHS.  You can email the choir directors directly, (mholton@psd70.ab.ca and dweisenberger@psd70.ab.ca) or contact myself to help make those arrangements.  For auditions, you should prepare an a capella song to sing and then be prepared to do some range and ear testing.   The audition should take approximately 10 minutes.
This is a fantastic opportunity that many of our Muir Lake students have taken and thoroughly enjoyed!  Let me know if I can answer any questions.
