NEW GIRL AUDITIONS!

THANK YOU FOR BEING PATIENT!
Here is the link to sign up for New Singer Auditions:

Click HERE

“HOW CAN I PREPARE FOR THE AUDITION?”
For the audition you should be prepared to:
• sing “America” (My Country ‘tis of Thee)
• sing the round “Brother John” (Are You Sleeping)
• echo sing small melodic phrases
• read text, and vocalize.
It is not a frightening experience and should only last about five minutes. The directors are just trying to be certain of your singing ability.

You also need a completed recommendation form:
• take a blank SBGC recommendation form to your classroom teacher (NOT YOUR MUSIC TEACHER)
• ask them to fill out the form and send the form to Elizabeth Snelling at Northbrook Middle School or email it to her at elizabeth.snelling@springbranchisd.com

Military Pictures

Do you have family members who have been or are in the military? 
We would like to honor these men and women by putting their pictures in a slide show when we sing the Armed Forces Medley. 
Please email pictures to Elizabeth.Snelling@springbranchisd.com with the subject title “USO Pictures”.
In the email please tell me: 
his/her name, rank, branch of military, and how they are related to your daughter, your daughter’s name. 

We hope to have quite a few. If you have multiple family members, we would like to honor them all. Please send them to me by Friday 3/16/2018.

Thanks!

Pizza Theater Auditions!

If you would like to audition for a special act in this year’s Pizza Theater, please prepare a 3-4 minute song that was made famous in the late 1930’s early 1940’s World War 2 era. It needs to be memorized, choreographed (doesn’t have to have a dance, but must be somewhat staged), and fully prepared. The competition gets tougher every year, so the more prepared you are the better. If you have a costume already, please come dressed as you will be if you make it. If you are waiting to order the costume after results are posted, please bring a picture of what you have in mind. 

If you are chosen to be a small act, it is at the directors’ discretion to change something within the act. You must attend all extra rehearsals for Special Acts if chosen (Thursday Feb 8th, Thursday March 8th) . If you do not show for the extra rehearsals, your act may be removed from the line-up. All situations will be addressed individually. 

Songs you may *not* audition with are: Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Sing Sing Sing, It don’t Mean A Thing If It Aint Got That Swing, As Time Goes By, Armed Forces Songs. 

As always, please email with any questions!

We will be singing the National Anthem at Tully Stadium (1050 Dairy Ashford, Houston, Texas). Please meet at the Southwest entrance (Dairy Ashford side, closest to the Coliseum/Stratford side).  

We will meet at 6:15 with the game starting at 7:00. 
This has been changed since the last email went out. 

Please wear Blue SBGC tshirt, blue jeans, and sneakers. Hair should be tied back. 

Parents: Please stay to watch the girls perform. You will be able to enter with us to watch the anthem. If you wish to stay for the game (Stratford Home game), you will have to pay for a ticket, however your singer will be able to stay for free. 
When we are done singing, the girls will walk back to our “warm-up” area and you will be able to go home. Please check out with your daughter’s director. 

Again, the time has been changed! Call time is an hour later! 
Thanks everyone! 

See you Thursday!

New APP!

E-Blast Text Proposal:

New for Spring Branch Girl’s Choir Families!!

I’m excited to be launching a new communications tool for all SBGC families! This year we are using an app that will allow you to keep all of your information in one place, has a calendar feature, chat options, and more! Moving forward, we will be using TeamApp to communicate with parents and choir members.

In order to access TeamApp, start by going to your mobile app store and downloading the program. The logo you are looking for is below. Once you have downloaded the app itself, you need to search for Spring Branch Girl’s Choir. You can spell it out, or do a search for SBGC, both should find us! To confirm, our page header looks like the Header above. For those who use business phones and are not allowed to install independent apps, you can always still access the information via www.teamapp.com. Set up your account and look for SBGC just as you would on a mobile device.

Once you have found our page, request access to the choir you are in, and an admin will approve you. Once you have access to the app, you will be able to see a news section, which will keep you up to date on new developments and information. You will also see your event page, which has all our concerts and events already uploaded and includes location maps. Please use the chat feature to ask questions or request information from either the full group or any one individual. There is also a document section which will hold information for you (such as copies of the handouts) and a photo gallery where you can upload photos of your daughter enjoying all her SBGC activities!!

If for any reason you are struggling with the download or have questions accessing the SBGC page, please contact Nathalie Herpin At nathalie.herpin@gmail.com. I’m excited for this new development and look forward to a greater ease in communications with you all!

First Rehearsal

Dear families of SBGC

First of all, we hope that you are safe and that your family is well.

We are eager to get back to a sense of normalcy as I am sure that you are too.
As it stands, SBISD will go back to school on Monday 9/11. If this is the case, I would like to start rehearsals on the 12th.

If you cannot make this rehearsal, or the next few, or even the whole semester, I want to assure you that your daughter’s place in SBGC will not be lost. If there is a financial burden, similarly, your daughter’s place would not be lost.

If you would like to help financially sponsor another student, it can be done so anonymously. Please speak with our president Erin Dietsch. We also need volunteers for the first couple of rehearsals for signup and uniforms. If you signed up previously, please volunteer again. If you are now unable to do so, please email Erin.

Our girls love love love to sing; it is in their spirit. I know first hand that being in any music group creates bonds beyond anything in a normal classroom, and this group has something very special about it. I am looking forward to the magic that the girls bring to each and every rehearsal.

Please reach out if you have any concerns or hurdles that you want to address.

My very best wishes to you and yours,

Elizabeth Snelling
