Have you watched what the choir has done and wished you could be a part of it? The Gifford Children’s Choir has been viewed over 2 million times by people in almost 200 countries. They have commissioned and premiered many new pieces and been invited to travel around the world.
The Gifford Children’s Choir is undergoing a transformation. The choir started as an extracurricular activity at Gifford Elementary School but is becoming the springboard for something different and exciting. SO many people from outside the school community have asked if they could join, that membership will now include children from Racine and the surrounding area that are currently in 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th grade. You no longer have to attend Gifford Elementary to be a member of such an amazing choir. Public school children, private school children and home school children are all invited to participate. Audition dates for the new choir are in the planning stages. Former members of the 2010-2011 Gifford Children’s Choir will be given placement preference.
If you would like your child to be invited to participate in an audition, comment with your name, child’s first name and an e-mail address to contact you. Comments are monitored so your information should not be available to the public. Alternately you are welcome to contact the director directly at jacksenzig yahoo com. Pass the word on to others who may be interested.
The choir is no longer associated with the Racine Unified School District in any way. This is a new endeavor supported and directed by the same creative team and director. The choir will be renamed and will be part of a larger umbrella organization.
