Chorus Large Group Performance Evaluations

Monday, March 9th, the 7th /8th grade Boys’ Choir and the 7th/8th grade Girls’ Choir traveled to Avondale Estates Baptist Church for LGPE (Large Group Performance Evaluations). These are our state-wide evaluations in which each choir has to sing 2 pieces of music and sight-read a piece of music in front of a panel of judges to receive a score of 1 to 5, with a 1 being a “Superior” rating and a 5 being a “Poor” rating. Please congratulate our choirs as they had outstanding results!

 

*7th/8th Grade Girls’ Choir-
                (1) Superior- in singing
                (1) Superior- in sight-reading
 
*7th/8th Grade Boys’ Choir
                (2) Excellent- in singing
                (1) Superior- in sight-reading
 
Likewise, last year the 7th/8th grade Girls’ choir was asked by one of the LGPE judges, Mr. Mike Dorough,  to perform and record a piece that he had written so that he could submit it for publication. Mr. Dorough is a well- known retired Choral Conductor in Georgia with many accolades behind his name, so we were thrilled to be asked to embark on such an endeavor. We received the official invitation back in October and the girls and I set out to learn and perform the piece for a recording session. After several months of work, the choir recorded the piece, and it was sent out to the publisher last week. Mr. Dorough was thrilled with the results and was so proud to work with our EMS Chorus.
