What is the attire for performances?
Singers attire is determined for each event and will be published on this website well in advance.
How do I connect on Facebook or Twitter?
You can follow us by searching: @RNEchorus
When are after-school rehearsals?
There will be occasional afterschool rehearsals. Those rehearsals will end at 4:30. Pick up is by the carpool doors. (Chorus will not exit through the gym as Prime Time afterschool care meets in there. If you need to pick up your child early, please contact me before rehearsal and we’ll make arrangements.)
Why is there a $30 donation this year?
We will use the money to help pay for event t-shirts, food/water at rehearsals, costumes and props for the musical in December. This donation is in lieu of asking you to provide costume pieces for the musical that we can order in bulk. Personal attire might still be needed but majority of costumes will be taken care of by this donation.
I noticed that sometimes just Fourth or just Fifth Grade Chorus is called for rehearsals or performances. Is that a typo?
Good eye! To lessen the burden on families and give each class of singers a moment in the spotlight, there are several concerts that will feature one or the other group. You will notice on the calendar that I say exactly which group is expected at each event. ie: "Fourth Grade Chorus," "Fifth Grade Chorus," or "Fourth and Fifth Grade Chorus"
Why are there two nights of performances in a row? Does my child have to come to both?
Grade level performances are split according to teacher to accommodate the number of students on the stage and the number of audience members we can fit in the cafeteria. Chorus members are expected at both performances so both audiences get to experience the full sound of the chorus. If you can only watch one of those performances and need to drop off and pick up on the other, that is fine. Drop off is usually thirty minutes prior to the show and pick up is at 7:50 pm.
When should my child be at school for performances?
Singers should arrive when the door opens 30 minutes prior to the event. Most concerts begin at 7 which means singers should be here at 6:30. The musical in December will have different call times. Stay tuned for info.
Will there be "pre-show" concerts this year?
That is the plan! Grade level performances will kick off with pre-show festivities at 6:45 and the regular show beginning at 7 pm. The musical in December will not feature a pre-show.
Will chorus perform at Atlanta Gladiator games this year?
Yes. Stay tuned for more info on a fundraising performance on January 30 and a joint holiday concert with other metro Atlanta area school children on November 30.
What exactly is Carpool Choir?
Students will perform snippets from the upcoming concert on the carpool steps to help promote the event. It's fun!
