LCS Children's Chorus

The LCS Children's Chorus is open to all students in 1st - 5th grades and is an extracurricular activity that supports a child’s interest in music, singing, and performance. We work hard every day and students learn concert etiquette, professionalism, singing technique, and a love of music.

Cost:
Each student will need to pay $5.00 to cover the cost of music and any props used during concerts. It will be kept in a separate fund and used only for the benefit of the choir and no one else.

Uniform:
With professionalism in mind, students are asked to wear black bottoms in accordance with the modesty standards of the school. While dress pants and skirts are allowed, shorts are not. For the winter concert, students will wear a red shirt and for the spring concert, a white shirt. These must also adhere to the modesty standards of LCS.

Schedule:
The students will meet in room 119 promptly at 3:00 p.m. to begin rehearsal which will end at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesdays.

Snacks:
Students may bring a snack for after school. It should be consumed and trash disposed of by 3:00 p.m.

Pick-up:
Parents will need to come to Room 119 to collect their children. There will be a sign in and out sheet that parents will need to fill out before taking their children.

Volunteers:
I would like to have two volunteers in the room at every meeting if possible. If you would like to sign up for a day, please email Mrs. Lemmon. You may volunteer as many times as you like. Otherwise, I ask that parents not sit in on rehearsals. They tend to be distracting for the kids, and it will ruin the surprise at the concert.

Absences:
Please notify in advance when your child will be absent so that they are not hunted down during pick-up. Students cannot miss the rehearsal the two weeks before the concert, barring extenuating circumstances.

Concerts:
Students should arrive 30 minutes before a concert and meet in Room 119. Tardy students will not be allowed to participate in the concert.

Expulsion:
Students that are a continual behavioral problem will not be allowed to return to choir. This is so that our time can be focused on learning the music and techniques rather than redirecting a child.

Content:
Our music will follow the aims of the LCS’ founders and have a place in the classical canon. That is to say that music will belong anywhere in the history of music and Music Theater but will not include the popular tunes from the turn of the century. They will be age appropriate, and we will discuss the history of the song and its relevance.

Performance Attendance:
All students will be encouraged to attend performances around town and share their experiences with the groups. I will announce options as I hear of them. I would like to find a performance that we can attend as a group. These are all optional, though strongly encouraged.
