2020 Fall Registration is now Open
Laura Petersen, Artistic Director announces our Fall 2020 Plan
UPDATE (Aug. 14, 2020)
We have a few adjustments to our Fall Season plan. We will take advantage of as much nice weather as South Dakota will give us and our first month or so of rehearsals will be done OUTSIDE!
This will allow us not only the least risk environment possible, but it will help us get a strong start to the year in learning our music before virtual rehearsals will need to come into play. Our first rehearsal will be Sept. 8 at 4:15pm. We will meet on the front lawn of Southern Hills Church. 3400 E. 49th St. in Sioux Falls. We are very excited about socially distancing with our singers while the weather cooperates!
There is still time for your singer to get registered for our fall semester! We are going to focus on skill building, singing, and hopefully virtually feature a song for you to enjoy!
We are excited to announce our plan for the Fall Semester of our 2020-21 Season!
The choir will be using a hybrid model of in-person and virtual instruction. We will use a weekly rotation model that will divide the choir into smaller groups to incorporate several learning methods as they continue to work on their singing and musical skills. The weeks will include Zoom instruction, in-person, and “flipped classroom” learning. Each week will use a different form of instruction keeping singers as engaged as possible. The singers will also have access to a free app that will allow them to practice just like they would in rehearsal with real-time feedback.
Choir will meet, whether in-person or virtually, on Tuesdays from 4:15-5:30pm.
Tuition for this hybrid semester will be $100 per singer if the registration is paid and postmarked by August 1, 2020. After August 1, the tuition will be $125 per singer. The 10% sibling discount will apply for every sibling after the first sibling is paid in full. Payment can be made on our website through PayPal or check can be mailed to: SFCC, PO Box 875, Sioux Falls, SD 57104
Because our current health issue makes it challenging to plan too far in advance, we are only registering singers for the first semester. We are hopeful that we can resume in-person rehearsals fully in January 2021, but will reassess that in December and send out a registration for the second semester at that time. Please be aware that a significant change in COVID-19 could change our plans at any point.
We would love to have your singer return with us this fall! Yes, it will look different, but we are hopeful in this temporary new normal that your singer will not only keep singing but increase their skills during this time!
