August Updates

Students and Parents:

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!  It's hard to believe that in only a few short weeks school will be starting up again.  We have an exciting year ahead in the Mashpee Vocal Music program.  There will be new music and new performance opportunities this year.  I look forward to hitting the ground running when school starts and getting back into preparing for fall festival auditions and upcoming concerts.

There have been some scheduling conflicts this summer involving students who requested chorus last spring
If you do not have chorus on your schedule, please email guidance as soon as possible so they can fix your schedule:

Pat Farrell  pfarrell@mashpee.k12.ma.us (grades 7-9)
Dan Patenaude  dpatenaude@mashpee.k12.ma.us (grades 10-12)

I have contacted a few parents this summer regarding these conflicts and have had several of them resolved.  Again, if chorus is not on your schedule, please email guidance or stop in and see them if you're around the school. 

Some other items:

- If you have not had a chance to check out the choral calendar for this year, please do so by clicking the link at the top.

- Within the next few weeks, I will start creating links to some of the new music we will be looking at this year in Chamber Choir, Concert Choir, and Middle School Choir.

- Auditions for select groups: high school vocal jazz and middle school select chorus will be taking place around the 2nd week of school, with rehearsals to start at the end of September.  If you are unfamiliar with either of these groups please click the link at the top for more information

Any questions/comments/concerns heading into the school year, please email me: braymond@mashpee.k12.ma.us

Looking forward to seeing you all very soon!  Enjoy the rest of your summer vacation!

Mr. Raymond
