The WMS show choir gives students the opportunity to rehearse and perform music in a small group ensemble with a high vocal/performance expectation. It is an audition only group and those that audition are required to participate in school choir.
Students in show choir learn and perform many styles of music from mainstream pop to "old school" swing, gospel, jazz and more. The WMS show choir performs publicly at venues such as the local malls and also participates in the area "Show Choir Festival" involving all Bismarck/Mandan middle school show choirs.
The show choir rehearses 2 mornings a week at 7:15am in the choir room and there is a $40 activity fee as well.
Show choir auditions for the 2016-2017 school year will take place the middle of September. More information will be provided to the students as it becomes available.
Students should be prepared to perform a song of their choice from any genre or style of music that they feel best fits their voice. Styles such as pop, rock, country, jazz, religious, choral selections, etc. are all suitable. Students should showcase what they can do.
Students may choose to sing their song a cappella, with the karaoke version, with the recording, or to accompany themselves or bring in their own accompanist.
