CONCERTS AND PERFORMANCES

Frontier League Vocal Festival: Select Choir

On October 21, 2019, Spring Hill Middle School will host the Frontier League Vocal Festival.

The Festival is a unique event for the fine arts.  Not many sports teams would invite a guest coach to come work with their team and coach them in a different way.  The fine arts recognizes that there is more than one way to perform a phrase or visualize a sound.  Therefore, if we hear the same thing from different directors and clinicians, then we understand the concept better and can apply it in our performance.  The students will learn that if you don't try something, then you won't know if it will work or not. 

Our clinician, has yet to be determined.  The students will have to try everything that they are asked to do, and they will improve greatly because of it.  They will need to be very receptive to a different style of teaching. 

The festival will begin with a mass choir rehearsal on three pieces.  These  pieces will be performed by the mass choir consisting of choirs from Trail Ridge, Eudora, and Spring Hill.  

The concert will begin with each school performing one song by themselves that they have prepared before coming.   The concert will conclude with a performance by the mass combined choir.  

Please plan to attend the evening concert that begins at 7pm at the school that is hosting the festival.  They love to see you there to support them.  

Check the Concerts page for more information. 

Information sheet will appear here soon.
