Select Women's Chorus
SELECT WOMEN'S CHORUS:
The Select Women's Chorus at Barker Road Middle School is an extra-curricular group which meets outside the school day. It is one of the highest performing groups at the middle school level and has earned the highest rating of Gold With Distinction at NYSSMA Major Organization for two years in a row. (There is a Youtube link below.)
Select Women's Chorus includes girls in grades 7, 8 and 9 and meets every Wednesdays from 2:30-3:30. Students are required to attend all rehearsals and performances.
This is a select group and as with any other type of team, every player or singer must be present at every rehearsal. If your child has a legal absence from school they are excused. Please do not schedule doctor or dentist/ortho appointments on Thursday afternoons. Students are also not allowed to attend other club meetings on the day of a scheduled rehearsal. Participation in this group requires a commitment. Both parents and student will be asked to sign a contract. Three unexcused absences will result in dismissal from the group.
Required Concert Attire:
Members of the Select Women's Chorus are required to purchase a formal black gown that is to be worn for all performances. The gowns are ordered by Mrs. DeBell. Students will be able to purchase their gown at a reduced rate if they participate in the annual fund-raiser. When the ladies receive their gown they will need to have it hemmed as a full length gown (just touching the floor).
