2020-2021 TAG Members Announced
Thank you all for being so patient with the delay in announcing the new members. This year was particularly hard because so many of you sang so well. In a normal year, many who didn't make it, would have made it. In fact, there are so many good girls that I have to so no to this year, I'm really interested in having an all girls group in addition to TAG. I have contacted some friends that have girls groups and they have offered to give us several arrangements. I will contact those of you who qualify for the girls group later tonight to see if you are interested and see if we can make it work.
Now without further ado - here is the 18th edition of TAG
TAG Virtual Auditions Now Live!
The TAG audition window is now open. You can submit your audition at https://flipgrid.com/tagauditions You will need to enter your school e-mail address in order to log into Flipgrid. Once there, check the sample audition. This is the exact format that you should follow for the part singing audition. The singer did not use music, but you are more than welcome to use the music for your audition. I'm not expecting anyone to memorize it. Read the instructions in the part audition thread. Also, don't feel rushed to change songs in the middle, you have plenty of time as the recording can be up to 5 minutes long.
TAG auditions are open to all Cypress students - face to face and home virtual. TAG will meet Monday evenings from 6-8:30 p.m. For Home Connect students, there will be no one else anywhere on campus at that time so you should have very little contact. We will be doing a combination of singing spaced out in the auditorium and outside. I will give many more details once the group is finalized for the year.
All of the TAG Audition materials have now been posted. In the CALENDAR section, if you click on the audition event, you will get all of the requirements and rules. In the DOCUMENTS section is the sheet music for the two audition songs. In the MUSIC-TAG LEARNING TRACKS are all of the individual learning tracks for both songs. I have tried to be very detailed about the instructions. If you have any questions at all, please e-mail Mr. Stroh. Your question could be about syllables (some of them are crazy), what part to sing, how to find your part on the sheet music, etc. Good luck and I hope that we can have these auditions. We have lots of people to replace and we want TAG to be just as good as ever with a new cast of characters.
