Welcome, New Members: Fall 2016

Before we get to the results, we wanted to say thank you to everyone who auditioned this year. We had an absolutely fantastic turnout and we were blessed to have such a large pool of talented singers audition for the Chorale. Unfortunately, because of the quantity of singers we received this year, we had to be very selective in our audition process. If your name does not appear on the list below, we fully encourage you to audition in the future.

The names of those accepted are below. We are so happy to welcome you all to the Chorale family! Our first rehearsal is tomorrow, September 8th at 4:30 pm, and we can’t wait to see you.

Reminder to the freshmen: Because Convocation is tomorrow, we ask that you still come to our rehearsal but arrive dressed and ready to go. Let your RA or RD know beforehand that you won’t be walking down with your floor to Convocation and the barbecue, and we’ll let you go in enough time.

Next, we want to encourage you all to spread the word around campus about auditions! We are always looking for new members, especially freshmen and sophomores. If anyone asks you, tell them that auditions are Sunday- Wednesday, September 4 – 7 from 2:00 – 6:00 PM.
If you are going abroad this semester, please email Marshall and Brittney at attendchorale@gmail.com.
I can’t wait for an awesome year! We’ll see you all soon.

Sophomore Officer Platforms

It is that time of year where we begin the process of electing next year’s Junior Officers. Those elected will ultimately be in a position of leadership so choose those you think will be the best for the job. Officers put in a lot of work to make chorale run as smoothly as it does.  Getting elected is not a popularity contest, but rather picking those who have a passion for chorale and a desire to make it a great experience for all. We are lucky enough to have these attributes apply to all of our thirteen sophomore candidates.

Remember Choralers, voting is on Thursday, April 7th, and you must be in attendance to vote.  In the meantime, the candidates have created platforms so you can get to know them a little better; these are shown below.  Good luck to all of the candidates!
