3rd-6th Grade Choir

with Ms. Lindsay

Pinecrest Choir is designed to teach the joy of singing while developing skills of good vocal technique, part singing, musical interpretation and stage presence. Singing in a choir builds confidence, engages teamwork and brings a wonderful sense of accomplishment. It is the expectation that all choir participants will sing at the musical festival at Kings Dominion on Saturday, April 18 (performance time 12 noon). The cost for this activity includes entry into Kings Dominion on April 18 for the music festival (each child’s entry ticket for the festival allows him or her to spend the entire rest of the day in the park enjoying rides after singing / more Kings Dominion details will follow). Parents and siblings wishing to attend the festival can purchase discounted park tickets to gain entry to the festival and also be able to enjoy the park after the performance. Transportation to the music festival will be in parent vehicles. Additional performance opportunities for this year’s Pinecrest Choir will include, at minimum, a trip to a local retirement home (separate from any K-Kids trips), the all-school Winter Concert, the K-6 Spring Concert and the Preschool Year-End Ceremony. Ms. Lindsay has experience conducting choirs and choral groups and is excited to lead our choir in its second year.  **You do not have to have been in last year’s choir to join this year.** Fridays 10/4, 10/11, 10/18, 10/25, 11/1, 11/8, 11/15, 11/22, 12/6, 12/13, 1/10, 1/17, 1/24, 1/31, 2/7, 2/14, 2/21, 2/28, 3/6, 3/13, 3/20, 3/27, 4/3, 4/17 (24 weeks)
