Attached below are the rosters for 2019-2020 Symphonic Chorale, Kapelle, and Chamber Singers as well as an announcement about a new after-school mixed choir named Ardore that is starting next year. Every year, it gets harder and harder to select the choir rosters because the level of performance, dedication, commitment, and audition keeps rising. There are many students who, five years ago, would have made our Chamber Singers but the same audition and performance level now places them into Kapelle. That attests both to your ability and talent as well as the level of performance that is ensured in Symphonic and Kapelle next year. There is SO MUCH TALENT and SO MANY GREAT STUDENTS in the Clear Creek Choir program, and you continue to make our jobs more and more difficult in terms of where to draw the lines for each of the ensembles.
We understand that there will be some disappointed students, but please know that we have done everything we can to ensure that both of our varsity ensembles and Chamber Singers will reach their potential next year and be of the highest level possible and give as many qualified students as possible a Clear Creek Varsity Choir experience. At 72 students, Symphonic Chorale is larger than it has been since Springs and Falls were opened, and Kapelle is also bigger than it (and its predecessor Advanced Women’s Chorale) has even been. These are both a testament to the dedication and talent of you students who continue to push yourselves to reach the highest level of musical knowledge and performance, and we are set up for us all to take our Creek Choir program even further next year than we have gone before.
For those students who auditioned and are not listed on the attached roster below, if you think there is an error, please contact us via email. Otherwise, we look forward to seeing you return to choir in either Concordia or Cantabile where we hope you will take on the challenge of working hard on your sight reading and performance skills while also assuming the roles of leaders in those choirs to teach the new students the expectations and skills required to be a successful member of our Clear Creek Choir family. Returning members in our JV Choirs are vital to their success and the success of our program, and we hope you will take on that responsibility while working on your own skills!
If you would like to contact us to get feedback on your placement, we ask that you please wait to hit send until next Monday, 6/10. We look forward to having that conversation with you, but we find that a little time allows for a more productive conversation to happen.
Mr. Stultz and I are genuinely excited to get started next August to see how far all of our new choirs can go. 2019-2020 is looking great! We hope that you enjoy your summer. We can’t wait to see everyone back next year!
Mr. Park and Mr. Stultz
