As the Director of Choral Activities and Musical Theatre at Lincoln High School and Clark Middle School, let me welcome you to one of this school’s great ensembles. The choirs at Lincoln High School and Clark Middle School have a tradition of excellence and pride. The foremost goal of the Choirs is to provide each student with the finest musical experience possible. I believe that in each student there lies unlimited potential to achieve both individual and group goals. It is the realization of these goals through positive motivation that will insure the success of vocal music at Lincoln High School and Clark Middle School.
Membership in a choral ensemble allows students to develop a love for music that will offer an opportunity to enrich your own musicianship as well as providing for social and personal growth based on teamwork and professionalism. The choirs are well known for their musicianship and for their contribution to the community through music. This is in part due to the hard work and enthusiasm of many talented and energetic students. It is through this commitment and cooperation that we will continue our tradition of choral excellence.
The coming year will prove to be an exciting one as the music program takes on new challenges. I strongly encourage all parents to become involved in the Choir Boosters organization. Your active participation indicates to the choir members that you are supporting their efforts to achieve their goals and ambitions.
I know that you will find being in choir a positive experience if you are an active participant: you will receive back what you are willing to contribute. I look forward to a musically challenging and rewarding year as our participation in rehearsals, concerts, festivals, clinics, competitions, together with hard work and commitment, continues the tradition of outstanding music-making here at Lincoln High School and Clark Middle School.
I look forward to working together with all of you in our constantly growing program. It is only through the cooperative efforts of parents, students, and staff that we may create a positive atmosphere that fosters successful learning.
