Concert Men – Practice Materials

Concert Men,

If you forgot your Sourwood Mountain lyric sheet at school, or if you’ve already left in on a beach or at a pool during Spring Break, please download the file HERE so that you can practice over the break.   Remember:  Pre-UIL is Tuesday, March 25.  That is our second day back after the break.  We need to be memorized on all three of our pieces before that performance.   So, please do your part in helping us have a successful concert!

Have an awesome break!!  . . .   But don’t forget to look at this lyric sheet.

I will have our recordings from class posted here as soon as possible so that you can sing along.

Thanks for your effort!!

- Mr. Kirkwood

Sourwood Mountain Lyrics

Concert Choirs – Spring Trip

The Concert Choirs of the Cy-Fair Choir Program will travel to Deer Park High School and Schlitterbahn-Galveston for their Spring Trip for the 2013-14 school year.  Both choirs will compete in the morning at Deer Park HS (Concert Women at 8:00 AM and Concert Men at 11:15 AM,) spend the rest of the day at Schlitterbahn-Galveston, and return to Cy-Fair HS after the 7:00 PM Awards Ceremony.  This trip is open to students and their parents and is not a required activity.

We encourage all eligible Concert students to attend.  We are also in need of parent chaperones to volunteer their time.  The contracts for the trip are on the choir website: http://cyfairchoir.com/parents/forms/ 

Before fundraising, the trip is $85 for students and $55 for chaperones.  We will host a car wash specifically for Concert students on Saturday, April 12.  More details will be forthcoming.

For now, please print the contracts and return them to school with a $25 deposit by next Tuesday, March 11.
