The Grade 5/6 Divisional Choir Director will be coming to Strathmillan on Wednesday May 31st at 1:30pm to audition students interested in singing with the divisional choir. The Children’s Choir is an enrichment group that performs at a high level. Membership in this choir gives children the opportunity to develop excellent choral singing skills and to meet with other talented musicians from throughout the school division. In addition to having fun singing together, this choir also works very hard. Since we only meet once a week and our singers are from different schools, regular attendance at all practices and performances is required. Extra practices will not be scheduled.
Weekly rehearsals will be held on Wednesdays from 4:15 until 5:45 p.m., beginning on Wednesday, September 6th and ending in mid-May, 2017. The location of the practices will be Heritage School. A three-day choir camp has been planned for September 20 – September 22 at Camp Manitou, just west of Winnipeg. This camp experience allows the choir to learn many of the songs for the year, get to know one another and bond as a choir. Students must be attending a school in the St. James-Assiniboia School Division, and must also be members of their school choirs, sharing their exemplary choral skills and providing leadership in their school choral programs. They must also be willing to commit to participation for the entire season, ending in mid-May, and make every effort to attend all performances.
Please ask Mr. Bychuk if you have any questions.

Our two School Choirs performed at the Winnipeg Music Competition Festival this week and they both performed very well. 64 primary students and 56 intermediate students performed this week at the festival. Congratulations to our Intermediate Choir on obtaining a SILVER and to our Primary Choir who obtained a GOLD. We are so proud of all your hard work!
