Choirs Head to Districts

Both Cypress Chorale and Intermezzo will head to Charlotte High School to participate in the Florida Vocal Association District Choral Music Performance Assessment (MPA).  The Cypress choirs will be performing on Thursday, February 23 between 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.  Anyone is welcome to attend the event and the admission is free.

Each choir will perform two pieces on stage in front of a certified three judge adjudication panel.  The judges will evaluation the choir based on a statewide standard of excellence and award a rating.  After singing on stage, each choir will be led to a room in which they will sight read.  The choirs must sight read a rhythmic exercise and also a three or four part piece of music with only one minute to prepare for each exercise.  This is the ultimate FCAT test and students must use all of the musical knowledge to make the sight reading happen.

The buses will be leaving Charlotte High School by 5:30 and should return to Cypress by 6:30 p.m.  Parents, please remind your students to bring their concert attire with them to school tomorrow as we are leaving before school is out.

Good Luck to Both Choirs!

Cabaret Postponed!

As Hurricane Irma bears down on Fort Myers, we are going to postpone the cabaret so that families can make preparations for the storm or evacuate. We will look for a make-up date soon. Be safe and take this threat seriously.
