2014 TEEN CHOIR RULES AND SCHEDULES
Greetings! We are excited that the Teen Choir will once again perform all of its pre-show concerts onstage. We are thrilled at the opportunities each summer provides for showcasing the talents of young performers.
It is hoped that in 2014 Linda Starkey will again be the Music Director and Joshua Larson will be the Staging Director.
Because Teen Choir is actually a part of our main stage entertainment, we must expect that if you sign up for a Teen Choir presentation, you will be in attendance for all the performances. We know this is a big commitment, but we need the best and truest sound we can get at each performance, so that the Teen Choir can reach a high level of professionalism. Please don’t sign up for any choir, if you can’t be at all the performances. (This worked wonderfully well last summer!)
We will be having polo shirts again this year as our costume. Each choir member will be given one shirt for the entire summer. Replacement shirts or extras will need to be purchased from MTWichita. Each choir member will be required to wear black dress pants. We ask that you refrain from black jazz pants or black jeans. We will be tucking in our polo shirts so a black belt and black shoes and socks will also be required.
If you are involved with any of the productions as a teen performer or apprentice, we highly encourage you to be a part of the Teen Choir during the same time. We will work around any conflicts so that can be a part of both of these opportunities.
Thanks so much for your interest. Stay tuned in for more details!
