Gatesville ISD Choirs
Welcome back for the 2017-2018 school year! It's going to be an exciting year for the Gatesville ISD choirs.
ALL JUNIOR HIGH AND SENIOR HIGH Choir students must be fitted for a formal uniform. We will be doing uniform fittings in the choir hall on August 16th and 17th from 9:00am to 4:00pm. Please make plans to come during those times, if at all possible. If you are not fitted at that time, you will have to schedule a time to stay after school and take care of it.
All choir students will need to purchase a choir t-shirt. The cost for high school is $15 and for 6th grade and junior high is $8. The shirt will be new this year, so all choir students will need to get one. Also, uniform shoes are necessary for high school and junior high students. If you do not have a pair from previous years, or if they do not fit, you will need to purchase them at a cost of $25. We will order them in early September, so they must be paid for by then.
Our fall fundraiser will begin on Thursday, August 24. Students will get a brochure and order form to take home that day. Online purchases are also possible. Further information to follow. We will post a link here to access the online store.
We have several students who have already begun working very hard to be able to audition for the All-Region choir this year. They've been to camp and are working on their own to get ready. The auditions will be on September 30th. The 9th and 10th grade All-Region music is set, and students may begin working on that immediately, as well. That audition, as well as Pre-Area auditions will be held on 4th.
We are planning a performance of Willy Wonka on October 5-7. Most rehearsals will be conducted during class times, but there will be a few afternoon and/or evening rehearsals, especially the week before the performance.
Our annual Choir Follies concert will be on November 7th with a full rehearsal the evening before.

Let's make this the most AMAZING year, yet.
