  • Dear JMHS Choir Parents


    Congratulations to all of our JMHS Chorus members for a wonderful Spring Concert performance!  It was great to see so many parents, families, friends and chorus alumni in the audience, supporting our singers.  At this time there are several end of year issues I would like address.


    • Friday, May 26, 2017, Jackson Senior Center Memorial Day Ceremony:  The Jackson Senior center has invited the JMHS Concert Choir to perform at their annual Memorial Day ceremony at 11:00AM.  The Concert Choir will perform our National Anthem, and the “Salute to the Armed Forces,” honoring our nation’s veterans and those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.  The Concert Choir will be performing wearing our tradition black and red robes.  At 10:30 AM, we will be walking together to the Senior Center, which is adjacent to our school.  After the Choir performance, we will return to school at about 12:00 PM.


    • Performance attire: The female members of our group were given a formal black dress to wear for performances.  Students who are not returning to the choral program in the fall of 2017 must return the dresses on or before Friday, June 2, 2017.  These dresses must be professionally dry-cleaned, and returned in the dry cleaner’s plastic packaging, with the dry cleaning receipt attached.  The dresses cannot be machine washed without damage.  The replacement cost of a formal choir dress is $85.00.  If dresses are not returned by the date of June 2, or they have been damaged or returned soiled, the student will be fined for the replacement cost of the dress.  Students who are continuing as members of the choral program may hold on to their dresses until next year.


    • Graduation: Our 20 graduating seniors will perform the National Anthem at commencement on June 23, 2017.  The group will need to rehearse and prepare for this performance in the coming weeks

    Thank you for a wonderful school year of performances and music making! I wish our seniors all the best!
