LMS Choir has had a busy first half to the school year. We packed the house at our first concert of the year. I received many compliments and words of praise from parents and colleagues. The Advanced Ladies won “Best In Class” at the Ole Miss Choral Festival. We are all very proud of that trophy and already look forward to next year’s competition. There were quite a few participants in the District 2 Honor Choir and several 7th and 8th graders made it to the All State Honor Choir. All 10 of our 6th graders who auditioned made it to the All-State Honor Choir as well. We sang the National Anthem at numerous events including the River Kings Hockey game. The students worked very hard on their Christmas Program. We had 16 memorized songs in the concert and it lasted 50 minutes total. I am so proud of their efforts. We also had an end of semester field trip to Silver Creek Retirement Home as well as DeSoto Health Care Center. It was a great experience and we topped that off with a little fun and lunch at Chuck-E Cheeses. We ended the semester with a potluck and Secret Santa party during their class time.
We are now looking forward to the spring semester. The All-State students will be traveling to Hattiesburg to participate in the all-state choir. We will compete in District Festival, and the Advanced Ladies and Guys will travel to St. Louis and compete in the Music In The Parks competition at Six Flags. Our spring concert will come early, April 5th at Maples UMC. We hope to see you there.
