For those in the KC area....

This is from an email I received. It is for all kids, regardless of if you are homeschooled or not.


Forwarded:

Heartland Singers is a fun singing opportunity to learn and perform quality music literature. Participants will focus on good choral singing including the elements of diction, harmony singing, tone quality, and musicianship. Cost includes enrollment fee, music, and T-shirt. Directed by experienced music specialists, the Heartland Singers will have a great time preparing concerts and other performance opportunities.

This choir is for kids in grades 4 through 7.

(my daughter was allowed to join last year in grade 3. If you think your child is mature enough for a choir experience, attend the audition and give it a try. They must be able to concentrate and sing for a full hour at each practice)

Interested singers should come to the Choral Room at Antioch Middle School (Room 137 - use east entrance) for a 5-10 minute audition from 5:00 - 7:30 pm on either of the following dates: Tuesday, September 9, Wednesday, September 10, or Thursday, September 11, 2009. All singers will need to audition.

If selected, you may call to enroll at 816-413-5494.
Please also use this number for more information or questions.

There are still openings remaining at this time.

My daughter and 5 other homeschoolers were in this choir last year and had a great time!! It was a very positive experience, and she is so eager to do it again this year. Last year we had two concerts at Antioch Middle school, and performed one at Crown Center during the holiday season as well.

We would love to see more of her homeschool friends join us! This community choir is open to both boys and girls!!

If your child is worried or nervous about the audition--don't be. It was very fast and painless. The kids go into the music room privately with a teacher and their parent. They are then asked to sing something simple like Happy birthday or Twinkle Twinkle little star. It is very brief and they just want to see if your child can carry a tune and is not too afraid to sing in public. I think our audition took about 2 minutes total. My tip is to arrive for the audition about 5 to 10 minutes early, and then you wont have to wait in line for your turn, which usually increases nervousness!

Hoping to see other homeschool singers!!
