Allen Elementary Shcool




The non-auditioned choir is led by James McClary, Music Teacher, with occasional musicians brought in for accompaniment. The choir meets regularly on Wednesdays between 3:15 and 4:30pm and typically has one or two after-school performances a semester. Membership to the ensemble must be renewed every semester and is open to all 4th and 5th grade students in good standing.

Before committing, students will attend ChorAllen TryOuts on Wednesday, August 29. TryOuts are a chance for students to experience some of the singing activities of a typical rehearsal as well as a chance for the director to assess student commitment. Accepted candidates will be listed outside the music room door, after which if the student wishes to commit to the program, they will return a Performance Contract and Membership Fee by their respective due dates (see back). Interested 4th and 5th grade students should help their parents complete a permission form and turn it in to the student’s classroom teacher before attending ChorAllen TryOuts.

Fall application for membership begins Friday, August 17 and closes Monday, August 27. FALL Permission Form.pdf

Applicants will attend ChorAllen TryOuts after school on Wednesday August 29 from 3:15-4:30. The student’s performance and behavior will be assessed during this session to determine eligibility.
