VocalWERKS is an SATB vocal experience for 7th-12th graders exploring the vocal jazz and contemporary a cappella styles.
This ensemble, directed by Ly Wilder with assistance from Kathryn Sherman, will be singing music from the great choral groups of these genres and performing in a non-competitive festival and BEAT shows throughout the year.

Member responsibilities

  • Have your own email. We like to contact members directly with information regarding rehearsals and to send choreography videos and music tracks. We encourage the kids to e-mail us with questions and for clarification on material.

  • Have access to a dropbox. We upload all music and karaoke practice tracks to the Syncopation Dropbox that you will receive an invite to at the beginning of the year that we update frequently.

  • Be responsible for their own “stuff”. Each member receives a costume bin for the year with their name on it that all costumes must be kept in. They are also responsible for bringing their rehearsal folder, water and a pencil to each practice. They will do push ups for left articles of clothing, etc.

  • Master assigned new material from week to week (and to make up any missed material resulting from an excused absence).

  • Create an excellent rehearsal atmosphere by bringing a sense of focus and fun each time and by treating other members with respect and kindness.

  • Leave a place better than we find it by going above and beyond to help tidy up, to ask how you can help in any given situation.

  • Members must sign the rules of conduct upon acceptance into the group.
