Welcome to Cascade Choirs!
"Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent." - Victor Hugo
During the school closure, students should still engage in music learning. I will be using email and Canvas to communicate and support students and families.
I have posted an announcement on Canvas with first steps for students to interact with content during the closure. I will provide materials multiple times each week throughout the closure, as well as additional announcements and updates as new information becomes available. Please check your emails (student emails and parent emails on file with EPS) and Canvas at least twice a week to ensure you are staying up-to-date with materials and information. During this first week, expect more communication rolling out from me as we get things set up and running.
On Canvas, I will provide PDFs of our music, part tracks for each piece though SmartMusic, as well as weekly discussions on our selections, other recordings or videos on choir and music. I will also provide music theory resources, sight reading resources through SmartMusic, and audition information for auditioning into Symphonic and Vivace.
During the closure, the best way to contact me is via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be checking it daily Monday through Friday.
Thank you for your continued dedication to our choristers, our program, and to learning and education during these unprecidented times.
Director of Choirs
