Dear 4th Grade Families, We are delighted to announce the return of our Bear Tavern Spring Concert! Prior to March 2020, all students in 4th and 5th grade across HVRSD had weekly chorus rehearsals in addition to their regular general music classes. I am cautiously optimistic that we will be able to have full weekly chorus rehearsals next year, and all rising 5th graders will have the opportunity to perform in both the winter and spring concerts for the 2022-2023 school year! All performers experience pre-show jitters and feel nervous in front of an audience. The students and I talked about this before our May Day performance, and the overwhelming response from the 4th graders after May Day was happiness and excitement! They concluded that the best way to conquer stage fright is to practice and feel prepared ahead of time. This is an essential aspect of our music curriculum. This year’s 4th Grade “Chorus” performance will look slightly different from previous years. My intention is for students to have a voice deciding what they will do at the concert. Some students loved our ukulele unit and might choose to play that. Some students enjoy our soprano recorder unit and might decide to play that. I hope that each student feels excited about their role in our spring concert. We are approved to have our concert at Central High School’s Performing Arts Center (PAC) on Wednesday, June 8, 2022. As we get closer to concert day, more information will be sent home with all the details for the concert and a permission slip to go to the PAC on 6/8 for a daytime dress rehearsal. Our concert attire is ALL BLACK (no shorts). This year’s spring concert will feature: 4th Grade Chorus, 4th Grade Orchestra, 5th Grade Vocal Ensemble (the Treble Makers), 5th Grade Orchestra, and 5th Grade Band. Please reach out with any questions or concerns! Very truly yours, Britt Marie (Dominick) Ingram
