Also, please make sure you are signed up for the choir remind accounts and that you are receiving our burst emails. If you have not been receiving emails, please email Mr. Krug with a preferred email address at zkrug@murrieta.k12.ca.us

Movement Mondays are going to be opportunities for our students to learn more about body mapping, healthy movement, proper alignment while singing and in everyday life.

Talent Tuesdays are going to be days to showcase the best of the best in the world of the choral arts from around the world. Through audio and video examples, students will be able to listen to individual pieces as well as entire concerts if they wish. Students will also have the ability to submit their own recommendations for choral groups to be featured on a talent Tuesday.

Warm Up Wednesdays are the chance to flex your rusty pipes! Mr. Krug will be posting video examples of extensive warm ups for students to follow for the next week to use in a variety of situations. These videos will include warm ups students already know, as well as new ones and suggested videos from professionals.

Theory Thursday is the opportunity for students to practice their ever growing ear training and music theory skills. Mr. Krug will be posting melodies and rhythms of the day as well as an interval quiz with multiple levels to challenge all students. Students are encouraged to practice their interval exercise (recording found below) as well as their regular solfege. All students have access to Sight Reading Factory for free using the access code found below. Please use it and practice all of the rhythms and melodies to your heart's content!

On Fun Fridays, students will be exposed to the best and brightest in the world of vocal music, not limited to choral arts. We will be exploring healthy vocal habits, successful careers, and role models in the world of music while also enjoying the best of what vocal music has to offer today and from throughout the decades.

Assignments Starting April 6th

Additional Assignments

Additionally, ALL students of the choir program are asked to learn the parts to "You Will Be Found". The New York choir is asked to learn "I Am Not Yours". These two pieces were selections we were going to take to New York, but unfortunately our trip had to be cancelled. Now, as it stands, we will be performing one final concert once we return to school (pending any further cancellations). On this concert, we will perform our Spring Concert repertoire, the New York choir will perform "I Am Not Yours", the seniors will perform "You Are Not Alone", and the entire program will perform "You Will Be Found".

A virtual choir back up plan is in the works pending any further cancellation. 

Please find all part tapes and recording below!

Happy practicing!

Leadership Applications

Next school year, the choir council will be replaced by a formal leadership team. This team will be comprised of several official positions with specific jobs aimed at assisting the program, the director, and its students. Any student wishing to apply for a position must meet the necessary requirements and return the application to Mr. Krug via email no later than APRIL 10TH

What are we looking for in a leader?

Students wishing to apply for a leadership position must first and foremost have a natural desire to serve their program. Choir Leaders are those who put others before themselves but also lead by example. We are looking for students who are exemplary individuals of C.L.A.S.S. and living the Bronco Way. A Choir Leader is a student who isn't afraid to put the good of the program before their own relationships or let their personal interests falter their character. Finally, we are looking for students who are ready to innovate, think outside the box, and who take initiative.
