As we welcome the 2017 - 2018 school year and students once again fill the halls of Newport Harbor High School, the choral room is now busier than ever! This school year we are happy to introduce two new ensembles to our choral program for a total of four ensembles. Students are eager as our student numbers have doubled with the addition of our new Freshman Ensemble and Sailor Ensemble. These new groups will allow us to provide a well-rounded musical curriculum as students make their way from beginner to advanced levels of choral music. This also allows us to provide our audiences with more music and flexibility with performances throughout the year.
This year our singers from our Advanced Vocal Ensemble and Ladies Ensemble prepare to go on their first choir tour under the direction of Mr. Ledón. These singers will be traveling to New York to sing at Carnegie Hall February 17 - 21, 2018. This experience will create long lasting memories for our students as well as providing them with a unique performance experience. As with all tours, there is a financial commitment that all students must undergo. Throughout the fall and winter quarters of the year the students will be trying to raise funds through concert fundraisers, outside performances, selling ad space in our concert programs and more. Help show your support by joining us at our first concert of the season on Wednesday, October 18 at 7 PM. All proceeds from this concert will go towards a tour fund that is helping subsidize some of the tour cost for the students.
If you or someone you know is willing to donate to the New York choir tour, or is interested in helping to sponsor a student, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We look forward to seeing you all at our first concert as we continue this new era of choral music at Newport Harbor High School.
