We're only twenty-five days into school, but boy is everything in full swing - literally!
Auditions are done and over with, and practices have begun for the GR Singers. This group, formally know as the Swing Choir, is selective to 25-30 students who perform choreography and sing all genres of music. The GR Singers perform perio-dically throughout the year at music concerts, and are a highlight at the G-R Jazz Show. In preparation for their performances, the GR Singers gather for practice every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 7:30.
Under the director of Mrs. Amanda Bridges, they have added a service to the community for this upcoming school year. GR Singers will now be the featured representation of the choral music department, and plan to travel to nursing/independent living homes and public events to spread the joy that music brings to all! Their first performance took place Saturday, September 22 from 11:15-12:15 during the Reinbeck Art Festival on Main Street. Keep an eye out for upcoming GR Singers' events, and make sure to come check them out!
