    Spring Choir Festival

    Our final choir concert of the year will be Thursday, May 24th! Each student in a Ms. Newton’s choir classes will perform with all of the other CRA students in 7th grade choir.

    This is a fun opportunity for parents to see the culmination of all of the hard work these students have put in this year!

    Who: All 7th grade choir students at CRA!

    What: The final official choir performance that is part of their grade for the year.

    When: Thursday, May 24th; 1:30 PM – please note the earlier start time!

    Where: Helena Middle School Auditorium

    Why: All of our music classes have a performance element! An essential aspect of being in choir is learning how to perform and present a concert. The Spring Choir Festival is also unique because of the festival format – students will meet with all 7th grade choir singers – 150 in all, rehearse all morning, take breaks for lunch and snacks, and put on a show that afternoon!

    Special Announcement: For the festival, we will be bringing in a guest clinician, Capital High School Choir Director – Thomas Baty. We are thrilled for the students to have an opportunity to work with him and get a glimpse of what choir class will be like when they get to high school!
