Beginning in 2nd grade, students at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School are eligible to participate in our choir program. The choirs meet before school and perform three main times during the school year, at two weekend masses and at Spring Concert. The rehearsals are fun and lively, while at the same time building a foundation for good singing technique, appreciation for quality literature, and proper rehearsal attitude.
In addition, participation at all the performances is a requirement. Please check the dates for our upcoming performances, write them on your calendar, and if you foresee a conflict please indicate it on the registration form.
Arriving on time and ready to sing is a must since morning rehearsals are only once a week. Please try your best to have your child to rehearsal on time. Also, if your child has a sore throat on a rehearsal day, please send them anyway. They won't sing but will follow along by listening and still learn the music.
CHOIR REGISTRATION FEE
In order to continue our outstanding choir program we are asking you to pay an annual choir fee of $15.00 per participant. This will be billed to your FACTS account. This fee will help to defray the increasing costs of sheet music. Choir fee scholarships are available if financial assistance is necessary (Please see Mrs. Lees for more information.)
