Band, Chorus and Strings - Beginning of the Year

August 30, 2018

At Kings Glen we are proud of our tradition of massive student participation in band, strings and chorus. Beginning as early as the first week of school we provide band and string demonstrations for students during the school day. 

Timeline and Important Dates

Chorus  (sign-up forms due Sept 10)

It is time to sign up for The Kings Glen Chorus!  The Kings Glen Chorus meets once per week during regular school hours.  In chorus rehearsals, we develop students’ listening and sight-reading skills, promote teamwork through music, sing various styles of music, move with the music and provide 6th grade students with the opportunity to audition for All- County Chorus.  While students do not audition to be in the Kings Glen Chorus, we expect those signing up to come to class ready to fully participate.  We will foster and continue the tradition of choral excellence established throughout Kings Glen and Fairfax County.

 

5th Grade- Beginning on September 11th, rehearsals will be held on Tuesdays from 9:45-10:30. 

6th Grade- Beginning on September 11th, rehearsals will be held on Tuesdays from 11:15-12:00.
