Tomorrow-SKPS Advanced Choral Festival

Tomorrow night is the Salem-Keizer Advanced Choral Fesitval at Sprague HS Gymnasium.  This event is one of the best nights of choral music in the Salem-Keizer area and features the State-Qualifying ensembles from our school district sharing a concert and singing all together in a massed choir finale.  Concert begins at 7:00PM, doors open at 6:30PM and tickets cost $5/individual and $15/family (gold passes do not get you in for this event).  This is a great concert and we hope to see you there to support our Symphonic singers!

Second Semester Roster Additions as of 1/23

Thank you to every student that auditioned for Mr. McLean over the past few weeks.  We heard massive improvements in vocal ability, music literacy, and overall musicianship.  While only some singers will reach their goals with each audition, please know all of you are valued and that you can receive feedback on your audition and work with Mr. McLean any time to develop strategies to meet those goals.  We couldn’t be more proud of our singers!  These results are as of 9:10PM, 1/23 and may be updated further.

Symphonic Sings at OR Capitol Tonight

Please join us tonight as South Salem High School’s Symphonic Choir sings at Oregon’s Capitol for the State Capitol’s Grand Tree Lighting ceremony. Symphonic Choir will perform at  5:00 pm. This performance will be the first time in over a decade that a choir from our school performs for the tree lighting ceremony. We welcome you to join us in commencing the 35th year of celebrating holidays at the capitol.

Fall Concert – Thursday, 10/20

Our Fall Concert is upon us!   This Thursday, October 20th at 7:30PM all of the choirs at South will be performing their first concert of the year.  All students are to report to their assigned room for check in dressed and ready for the concert at 6:30PM (Southernaires call is 6:00PM) .  Students are expected to be present for the entire concert as it is part of their concert exam grade and will contribute to their analysis and reflection assignment that they will have in class.

The concert cost is $3 a ticket or 2 for $5.  Parents and audience members are encouraged to arrive early as we are expecting a large audience on Wednesday.  Doors will open to the general public at 7:00PM and at 6:50PM for Gold Card Members (if you are interested, these will be on sale at the concert).  While we will make announcements from the stage, please know that we will not allow any entrance or exit while a group is performing.  It is a major distraction for our students and audience members when there is excess noise, movement, and action while there are groups on stage.  All of our ensembles have worked so very hard to put this concert on and deserve to have a great audience and concert experience.  So, please help us build that for them!
