Music Department

March 6, 2015

The vocal music department has been buzzing with excitement throughout third quarter. From 7am show choir rehearsals to 7pm Oklahoma rehearsals, kids have been singing and singing. We are excited to open the first School Musical in almost a decade in just a few days. “Oklahoma!” will hit the stage at the Middle School auditorium on March 8th, 9th and 10th. It has been an eye-opening experience for our students to discover just how much work, planning and coordination goes into a successful musical. We have had a steep learning curve and the students have truly been on a mission to give all they can.

 Back in the classroom, following a hugely successful Holiday Concert in December, the choirs have been working hard at fundamental skills. We have used music of the renaissance era (1400-1600) to exercise our sight-reading ability. The music is complex and requires a trained eye to follow the music. Again, just as with the students involved with the musical, our Lexington High students have worked hard to keep up with the difficult task in front of them. I am so pleased with all that our students have accomplished this quarter and am looking forward to what lies ahead.
