PLEASE INDICATE IF YOUR CHILD IS INTERESTED IN DOING EXTRA IN THE CHOIR. We have special parts that are optional but require extra practices. These include dance on Friday mornings, speaking parts, solos and instruments on Wednesday moorings indicated in the schedule, please print that off.
Your child can only tryout for 2 of the categories. 3rd graders unfortunely cannot tryout for the special parts. There are only a few solo singing positions open. PLEASE UNDERSTAND IF YOUR CHILD DOES NOT GET PICKED FOR THE SOLO.
If your child tries out for instruments, speaking, or dance...they WILL get a part. THESE PRACTICES ARE INDICATED ON THE MAIN SCHEDULE ON THE FARR WEST ELEMENTARY WEBSITE UNDER CHOIR TAB.
This year we will be using ukuleles for the instrument. We don't have a lot of them...if your child wants to be apart of this, they will need to either have their own, or let us know if they need one. It will be first come first serve.
IF THE CHILD MISSES TRYOUTS OR DOESN'T COME TO PRACTICE...THE CHILD MAY NOT HAVE THAT SPECIAL PART. Only sign them up if they can be to all tryouts, practices, and performances....and that they are dedicated to doing it.
We do want to accommodate any child in an organization within the school, like spirit sqaud or other leadership groups. Sometimes they have meetings during choir practice. Please email us with that schedule if they will miss any of the choir practices or special part practices.
Also, please type which 1 or 2 categories your child is interested in trying out for. Instruments, solos, speaking, or dance. This is not required if you aren't having them participate, but it is required if they will be considered and included in tryouts. We need to know in advance who is coming so we can create the choreography and material needed for the show. Thank you for understanding.
