We plan to reintroduce ensembles in Middle School this fall through the arts electives program, beginning with Chorale Ensemble and Band. These will meet during the day, in person, with grades seven and eight combined. Grade level choruses (third, fourth, fifth, and sixth), as well as percussion ensembles, will begin later in the fall, meeting in person during the school day. Ms. Baird will be looking for opportunities for our younger students to perform safely, as well. All music experiences will be conducted masked and socially distanced according to the latest health and safety guidelines. We hope to reinstate in person concerts, and are evaluating the best time and place for bringing these important, joyful experiences back to our campus!
All State ensembles
The opportunity for seventh and eighth grade students to audition for All State music ensembles will be available again this year. As always, participation is contingent on a student’s participation in at least one Gordon music ensemble, whether it is Band, Chorale Ensemble, or G-Notes.
