Welcome to another great year of music here at WCI! We are very excited for all that is on the schedule, so be sure to check out the important dates below!

Signing up for music ensembles at WCI is a MULTI-STEP PROCESS. Please ensure that you have completed all 3 steps.

  1. Register for your Ensemble(s) by clicking this link and filling out the Google Form: https://forms.gle/USaeaJ2uxXxGHj4V6
  2. Login to school-day.com to pay your ensemble fees and to submit your On-Going Consent Form. Fees are based upon the amount of ensembles you participate in.
  3. Review the student contract and submit it immediately to your ensemble director if you have any conflicts with the rehearsal or performance schedule. You are required to submit them in writing by printing off the Student Contract (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1LIWT4XB9563U02S6qnjjQjJ37Gm7kcmJ/view?usp=sharing). If you do not submit a conflict sheet, then it is assumed that you will be at ALL rehearsals and performances. The Student Contract has very valuable information regarding rehearsal times, concert attire etc. (we recommend you print out a copy of these forms for your own records and calendar)

If you are interested in playing Senior Chamber Orchestra, or if you would like to be a section leader in a Senior Ensemble, please be sure to sign up for an audition time outside the music room.

The ensemble information meeting will be Thursday, Sept 5th at lunch and auditions will be the following week.

Senior Orchestras, Intermediate Orchestra and Guitar Ensembles will start the second week of school. Band, choir and Junior Orchestra will start the third week of school.

Thanks so much and we look forward to seeing all of you soon!

Mr. Piche, Ms. Erdman, Miss Ridgway, Mrs. Fry and Mr. Peterman
