Classic Edition



Mrs. Anderson's website


Classic Edition is the award-winning show choir of McKinley Middle School.  It is an auditioned ensemble of approximately 50 students from 6th, 7th, and 8th grades who rehearse after school. Students sing, dance, and work with professional choreographers. CE performs around the community and competes in show choir competitions.  Rehearsals begin in November and wrap up before spring break in March.


AUDITION information

Show choir auditions for the 2017-2018 school year will take place November 13-16. Each student needs to attend one singing audition and one dancing audition. Each year approximately 100 students audition for the 55 spots in CE.

To Audition:
**Sign up for a 5 minute time slot to sing for Mrs. Anderson after school on November 13 or 14. Students should prepare a verse and chorus (approximately 1 minute) of a song that they like to sing. Please sing a cappella: no back track or sheet music.
**Attend a dancing audition on November 15 or 16, 3:00 – 4:30. Everyone will learn a simple dance at the same time and perform it in groups.

The final list will be posted after school on Friday, November 17. The group's first rehearsal and welcome breakfast will take place Saturday, November 18, 8:00am-12:00pm

It is important to know that Classic Edition is a big time commitment, but the outcome is always well worth the time and extra work. Students who earn spots in this ensemble are strongly encouraged to be positive and proactive students. They must also maintain good grades and be organized about their time commitments.
