Parents of returning members and new member families please attend the Children’s Choir of teh Internet (Teh Choir) meeting on October 2, 2014 6-6:30 PM at Lutheran Church of the Resurrection! Auditions for new members will follow the meeting. Returning kids do not need to attend but they may. Teh Choir is for children in grades 3-6, returning members may stay through 8th grade if they wish to. We will be singing some great songs and making some amazing videos including a Ninja Turtle cover with real ninjas. (Well real martial artists anyway).
Mr. Griffin will be directing an additional choir this fall. Concert Choir is for children in 6th-8th grade. It will perform more typical choral music with an emphasis on world musics. The meeting and audition times are also for you!
Rehearsals for Teh Choir will again be on Thursday nights at Lutheran Church of the Resurrection and will begin October 9, 6-7:15. October 9 and October 16 are also available as audition dates for new members of Teh Choir and Concert Choir.
Please Let us know if you will be attending! Welcome Back. OurMusicalLife@ymail.com
Hi Friends of Our Musical Life Inc.
We are looking at having the teh Choir kids perform at a couple parish festivals this summer. If you have any contacts please let us know.
Teh Choir will start up again in Fall. We are looking at having a Middle School Choir directed exclusively by Mr. Griffin. It would be for kids in 7 through 9th grades. Repertoire would include world music, contemporary classical choral music and more. If interested email us.
The kids that came on Sunday To sing before the church service did a great job! I got a lot of very positive comments from the people who heard them. Our performance was also very good at the Gifford Elementary Choir Invitational save that we were short handed.
We are looking for ways to get other children to see “Teh Choir.” Summer parish festivals seem like a good idea. Stay tuned and watch your email for upcoming choir business.
We would like to rehearse tonight, Thursday May 29 at 6 PM to prepare for a performance Sunday morning. Lutheran Church of the Resurrection has invited us to sing prelude music at their 10 AM service. We would need to arrive at 9:30 AM and be done by 10 AM. Please check your e-mail and respond if you are able to attend the rehearsal and /or the performance. We would sing Kaze No Ne and All of Me plus maybe 6 Days of Minecraft.
Concert May 24
Teh Choir has been invited to the Gifford Elementary Treble Choir Invitational on May 24, 2014. The kids should register for the workshop between 10:15 and 10:30 AM at Gifford Elementary School 8322 Northwestern Ave, Racine. They will begin rehearsing at 10:30 AM. The kids should wear their Teh shirt. If they are in multiple choirs they should wear the Teh shirt over the top of the other uniform. We will be done by 3:30 PM
Pizza will be served for lunch. We may be asking for a few dollars to cover the cost.
There is a public, free concert at 2:00 PM that day that will include Children’s Choir of teh Internet, Cadence Choir, Caiman Chorus, Accent Choir and the Gifford Children’s Choir.
Teh choir is working on All of Me by John Legend as a Mother’s Day offering. I would like to get 12 seconds of video from each member if possible. The video should be of the member playing, celebrating or otherwise enjoying life with their mother. It can be fresh footage shot for this purpose or old family footage as far aback as you have it. If anybody’s kids are swimmers, I would love some little kid swimming with mom footage. If you don’t have any video send a few pics. All files can be sent to OurMusicalLife@ymail.com. By sending them in you are giving us permission to use the footage for videos made by and for Our Musical Life Inc. without compensation of any kind.
Teh Choir Director Timothy Keith Griffin Jr. has been immortalized by OML creative team member Angela Janota in a PEEPS® Diorama. Miss Janota teaches strings at Gifford Elementary, Racine, WI and is the creator of the Cake Dress in the Still Alive videos. She entered this work of art in the Racine Art Museum’s PEEPS® Art Exhibition. Teh Choir Artistic Director Jack Senzig was also included standing in his comfort zone outside (on top of) the box. The show opens April 18 and runs until May 4, 2014. The individual PEEPS® are made to look like the children in the choir and their names are on their music folders.
