The Grosse Pointe South Choir Boosters

 

A Letter from Linda and Perry Calisi, Choir Booster Presidents 2017-2018


We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your family to the Grosse Pointe South Choir Program 2017-2018. We are thrilled your students have chosen to join the choir and we can assure you that this year will hold some of the best memories of their high school experience. Under the direction of Christopher Pratt and his creative team, the GPS Choir has a long reputation of bringing our community outstanding vocals and performances that make you question how these performers are still in high school. We are also a highly recognized, award winning competitive show choir that has traveled throughout the Midwest and Internationally. The skills our students learn throughout this program, such as hard work, teamwork and time management are priceless. Not to mention the self-confidence they gain for wherever their futures take them.

Our 2017-2018 year starts in August with the “That’s Entertainment” workshop. Our first official concert is Fall Follies which is scheduled in late October. In December we begin with the Sounds of the Season Concert, followed by holiday caroling in the community and finishing with the honor of performing with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra for their Home for the Holidays Music Tradition. The New Year will bring our show choir competitions that start in late January and take us into early spring. Mid-winter break will bring our tradition of traveling abroad every other year. This school year, our students will enjoy singing choral and show choir music in Barcelona and the French Riviera. Then the year will culminate at our final concert, Broadway! This is a night dedicated to the seniors who perform a number of their choice.

Making all of this happen, as you can imagine is no small feat! Our hope is that you and your family dive in head first to be part of this amazing group of parents, grandparents, students and faculty. Please consider becoming a member of the choir boosters, it is through the boosters that we are able to fund this spectacular organization for our children. There are always opportunities to volunteer no matter what your commitment level can be. Whether it be a few hours or serving as a chairperson. As they say, “many hands make light work!”

We have personally received the best of experiences and friendships through this program and we are looking forward to meeting all of you.


Warmest regards,


Linda and Perry Calisi
