Tonight’s the night.
Do you love to sing? Enjoy performing? Are you a middle school-aged girl in grades five through eight? If you answered “yes” to those questions, then tonight (Thursday, Aug. 20), you have one last opportunity to be a part of the Pagosa Springs Girls Choir for the 2015-2016 school year.
A final audition for the Pagosa Springs Girls Choir for the 2015-2016 school year will be held tonight at 7 p.m. in the middle school band room.
For the audition, students will be asked to sing “America” (“My Country ‘tis of Thee”), echo sing some melodic patterns and echo clap some rhythm patterns.
Once a member of the choir, girls spend much of their time learning vocal and choral techniques. However, they also learn about stage presence and musicianship. Girls learn and sing music of all genres, and some of their music includes props and choreography.
