 Our Treble Makers chorus meets every Monday and Tuesday after school, from 3:05 to 4:30 p.m.

 Auditions are held in September for students in 4th and 5th grades. (read below)

 We present concerts in December and May, and participate in events throughout the year, including the Merrick Festival Caroling Competition in Coral Gables, and field trips to the new World Symphony.

 Our students have been selected for the Superintendent’s Honors Festival Chorus.

 Alumni of our chorus have gone on to exclusive chorus programs at Southwood Middle School and Coral Reef Senior High School, where they have won awards at District and All State Festivals.

 Highlights of our performances include:

                Merrick Caroling Competition, Coral Gables, FL (2012, 2013, 2014)

                Merrick Caroling Competition Rotary Award (2013)

There will be a meeting for all 4th and 5th grade students interested in Chorus on
Monday, September 21st after school in Portable 5. The meeting will last from 3:05 to 4:30 p.m.
 

Students should come prepared to sing a short song such as “Happy Birthday.”
They will sing it by themselves for Dr. Driscoll. Students who can match pitch and sing with
good tone will be invited back to sing as a group on Tuesday, September 22nd. That meeting will also last from 3:05 to 4:30 p.m.
 

Regular chorus rehearsals will begin on Monday, September 28th. Practice is held EVERY Monday and Tuesday after school until 4:30 p.m. (unless it is a holiday or teacher work day).
 

Students selected for chorus must maintain good grades in all subjects and have outstanding conduct. They must be present for all rehearsals unless they are absent from school that day.
 

Students may not leave before the end of rehearsal.
 

Chorus is free, but students are asked to purchase a chorus t-shirt (approximately $12.50) and keep their music and a pencil in a folder.
