It's beginning to sound a lot like Christmas! Our choruses are working hard preparing for upcoming performances in December. First, on December 3rd, the choruses are singing for the lighting of the tree in the McDonough Square. Details are still being worked out for exact times, but performances will be around 4:30 and end with the tree lighting at 5:30. Following the tree lighting will be the Christmas parade. Also, on December 10th and 11th, the choruses will be singing with the choirs from Eagles Landing First Baptist Church in the Christmas performance. The theme this year is Come Together. Part of that theme comes from the collaboration between the church and the ELCA band, chorus, and guitar classes. We hope you can join us for these events. ELCA is blessed with some really talented students and God is giving us opportunities to use these talents for Him.
For the month of November, some of our choral students are working hard to audition for All State Chorus. These students have to prepare major, minor, and chromatic scales, a vocal solo, which for high school students is in Italian, and sight reading. I'm proud of Tiffany Franklin, Caley Ingram, Caleb Middleton, Loren Sullivan, and Zion Middleton for putting the work into getting ready for these auditions. The audition date is November 12th. They compete with students all over the state of Georgia.
