Tomorrow all choir students need to wear their choir t-shirts for our yearbook group pictures


The choir t-shirts and hoodies have arrived! They will be given to your child tomorrow along with the original order form. I thought I would give you a head up so you know to expect them.

Also, please have your child wear their choir t-shirt next Tuesday, November 2nd. The choir group photos will be taken that day.


Friday, September 24th Deadlines for 7th Grade Choir:
1. All-Region Tryout Form and $8.00 Fee
2. Drug Testing Consent Form (Must have for ALL 7th grade choir students)
3. Whether or not student is attending All-Region Workshop on Oct. 8 at Bryant Junior High


7th graders in the Bryant Middle School Choir have the opportunity to audition for the Arkansas Choral Directors Association Region 3 All-Region Choir. The students are currently learning the music for the auditions in class. Normally the auditions would be held at an on-site school location, however, this year these auditions will be virtual. This means that the audition cuts will be announced on the Monday morning of the audition week (October 11, 2021). Students will have until that Wednesday (October 13, 2021) to prepare and upload their recording. Judges will then listen to each audition and score each student. The cost to audition is $8.00. This cost will be covered by the student, if they choose to audition. If students make a choir, the cost is covered by the choir activity account, and the student attends the All-Region Choir Clinic where they participate in the choir. However, plans have not been released yet regarding this event.

This is a great opportunity for our choir students. Not only do they learn more about their singing voice, but this will prepare them for the future if they decide to continue choir in Jr High and High School. This also helps them prepare for college scholarship auditions as students must sing individually to audition for such scholarships.

I hope you strongly encourage your child to audition. It is a great learning experience for the students, and as stated above, can help them in their future endeavors of singing.

If a choir student would like to audition, please have your child bring back the form with the $8.00 in cash or check made out to Bryant Middle School by Friday, September 24, 2021.

This form was given to your child in class. It was also emailed to parents of 7th grade choir students, as well as, sent on remind and can be found on the choir website


Choir Parents/Guardians,

This is just a reminder that the order form and payment for the choir t-shirt and hoodie are due TOMORROW, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2021. The t-shirt is a requirement for performances and events. The hoodie is optional. If you need another copy of the order form, it can be found on our website under the Class Information Page.


We are almost two and a half weeks into the current school year, and we are getting settled nicely in our choir classes. I am thoroughly enjoying teaching your child, and I hope they are learning a lot in class and having fun learning as well.
In the choir handbook, it mentioned the choir uniform of a t-shirt and jeans. A copy was sent home with your child today if they were at school, as well as, emailed to you if I have your correct email address. You may also find this order form on our Bryant Middle School Choir Webpage under the Choir Information Sections The t-shirt is a requirement for class as we will wear this to performances and events. However, there is also an option to purchase a hoodie with the same design. The cost for the required t-shirt is $12.00. The optional hoodie is $28.00. Sizes of a 4XL and 5XL are a little more, which is listed on the order form. Order forms and money are due by Friday, September 10th. You may pay by cash or check payable to Bryant Middle School.


Today is a busy day for our choir students. Not only will they be rehearsing one last time for their concert, but they will be preparing to give you the best performance possible of their music. I would like to give you some quick reminders about tonight's performance.

Choir A (1st and 8th period classes) will begin at 6:00 p.m. However, the students will need to be in place NO LATER than 5:50 p.m.

Choir B (2nd, 6th, and 7th period classes) will begin at 6:45 p.m. However, the students will need to be in place NO LATER than 6:40 p.m.

All guests must wear a mask and must present their ticket to the administrator at the entrance door.

After the choir's performance, everyone must exit in a timely manner through the glass doors on the right side of the gym as the disinfecting process will begin immediately upon the audience's exit.

The students are free to leave after their performance.
Students are to wear clothes they can wear to school abiding by dress code policy.

This performance is worth 100 points of the students grade as choir is a performing arts class.

We look forward to performing for you all this evening.


Next Tuesday, May 18, the Bryant Middle School choirs will be having their spring concert. This concert will be held in the BMS main gym. Masks and social distancing will be required. Also, the BMS administrators will be at the entrance doors to collect your tickets. Choir students will wear clothes they can normally wear to school which abide by dress code policy.

After each performance, the audience and performers will need to immediately exit through the glass doors on the right so the cleaning and disinfecting process can take place. If you are not attending the concert with your child, please make arrangements to have them picked up after their performance.
If you have yet to complete the form from the previous email sent on April 15 indicating the amount of tickets needed, I have sent you a text message indicating that you need to complete the form by this Friday, May 14. Otherwise, you risk not being able to see and hear your child perform in the concert.
We look forward to seeing each of you next Tuesday evening. The students have been working extremely hard to prepare for this event. We hope you will enjoy the songs from the different decades, and hope they bring back a lot of happy memories.
I have enjoyed teaching your child this school year. Even though this has been a very trying year, and we were not able to do some of the events as we normally would have, we appreciate your ongoing support and encouragement.
If you have any questions, please let me know.

#BecauseOfArtsEd ... Students involved in the arts score better on standardized tests, make better grades, and get more scholarships to college. Students in the arts are better prepared for the workforce as they have learned the skills of self discipline and working as a team.

Because arts are so essential in education, Bryant Middle music instructor Laura Chism and other choir teachers in the district are not letting the pandemic prevent their students from doing what they love the most—singing.


Welcome to the new school year. Whether your child is a returning member of the Bryant Middle School choir or a new member, I would like to take a moment to welcome each and every one of you. This school year in choir has begun differently than what we are typically used to. Due to the mandates for choir set by the Arkansas Department of Health, it does not allow us to sing in the classroom that much. However, we will be utilizing the outdoors and other larger areas in our school so sing when it is feasible. Until the mandates for choir change, this is our "new normal." We will sing for the first time this school year TOMORROW. The students are really excited about this. Weather permitting, we will be going outside to sing so we can social distance. Students will still have to wear a mask when they sing. We plan to spend the first part of class singing, then spend the other half of class learning what our first singing assessment will be. Speaking of this assessment, this will be done at home through Flipgrid. The students will be given step by step instructions in reference to what to do regarding this. If a student does not have internet access at home, they will call my Google Voice number (408) 874-6443‬, say their first and last name, and sing the assessment as a message. Students will have one week to submit this singing assessment. Therefore, it will be due no later than Friday, September 18th. If students successfully pass the assessment, they will receive their yellow belt certificate in choir, which is part of the choir karate system we use for learning. The goal is to see how many choir karate belts a student can earn.

Currently, no choir concerts are scheduled yet for this school year. If mandates change which allow us to hold choir concerts again, I will certainly let you know.

If ever you have a question or concern regarding your child in class, please do not hesitate to contact me.


I am posting this for the school in case you do not get their emails. End of the year grades can be checked through HAC. The school will not be mailing report cards. If you have any questions or need assistance with your child's HAC information, please contact the school directly (501) 847-5651.


This is the information for the Zoom Meeting today regarding Jr. High Choir Tryouts. Please share this information with your child. As stated in last week's email, please send any questions you or your child have to Mr. Murdock.

Pick up Times:
Wednesday, April 8th from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Thursday, April 9th from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Congratulations to our 7th grade choir students for scoring an excellent rating in performance and a superior rating in sight-reading at the ArkCDA Region 3 Choral Performance Assessment.


Choir yearbook pictures on Thursday, January 16th. Students need to wear their blue choir shirt and jeans. Also, a very important email was sent out this morning regarding choir events for second semester. If you do not receive the email, let me know by emailing me at [email protected] so I can send it to you.


After receiving a call from the fundraiser company yesterday afternoon, the fundraiser items are supposed to arrive tomorrow, Wednesday, November 13th.


I have been working diligently for the past several days to get an update on why our choir fundraiser items have not arrived. From what I have been informed, there was a miscommunication between the company and the supplier. I was told that the company will contact me with a date of when the items will be delivered. I will let you know immediately when I receive this information.


Unfortunately, the choir fundraiser items did not come in today as planned. I just called the company to try to find out what is going on. As soon as they call me back, I will be able to give you an update. I apologize for this inconvenience.
Thank you for understanding.


The choir fundraiser items are expected to be delivered on Wednesday, November 6th. Students should be receiving their bags/boxes of items by the end of that school day.


Dear Choir Parent/Guardian,

Bryant Middle School will be hosting a night of holiday music on Thursday, December 12. This will feature both our Bryant Middle School bands and choirs in two separate concerts back to back. Therefore, we have been asked by our administration to change the date and location of the choir’s Christmas concert originally scheduled for December 16 in the Bryant Middle School main gym. The concert will now be on Thursday, December 12 in Bryant Middle School’s Blue Gym, which is the gym in the blue building behind the main building. 6th grade concert will begin at 6:00 p.m. and 7th grade concert will begin at 6:30 p.m. Each concert will last approximately 15 minutes. If a choir student is also a band student, they will make it on time to the band concert after they have participated in the choir concert. Please let me know if you have any questions.
