SJS Performance for Veteran Singers ONLY

Play For the Cure Performance Information:

Calling all Veteran Singers!  Come join us this year at the Annual Play For The Cure Field Hockey Game on Wednesday October 14th!  The game starts at 4:30pm and is at the Field Hockey Field (the back field with the silver bleachers) at High School WEST.  

We are singing "Brave" at half-time!  Please try to be at HSW by 5:00pm.  

*If you are new to the club you are welcome to come and support our Veterans sing this song but I am asking that you do not perform because you do not know the music yet! :) There will be plenty of other performances, don't worry!!

Wear PINK! You can go all out or just do a pink shirt or sweat-shirt. (It will be chilly, I am sure!)

Please RSVP to this event so I know how many kids will be attending. I don't want to start without you!

“The St. James Singers” CLUB!!

This club is open to any 3rd, 4th or 5th grader who is interested in singing in a children’s choir!  The St. James Singers will learn classical and modern repertoire to perform a concert for family members in June.  Other opportunities to perform outside of St. James Elementary School may arise (i.e. National Anthem singers for a local sports game, Smithtown Day, SCMEA, NYSSMA, etc.).  This is the “on-call” performance group for such events.  There is also a possibility of signing up for singing competitions within the county.   

We will meet every other Wednesday at 8:30 am – 9:30 am in the music room.   With rehearsals being so scarce, it is crucial that the members of this group are committed to working on their music at home using my website or any other materials that may be distributed.  Although this group is not “select” (no audition is required), it will be treating it like an Honor Choir in that there will be an attendance policy and a contract for parents and members to sign.  

There are so many talented young musicians in our school and this club will provide another musical outlet to their lives. If you are interested in joining, please come to our first Wednesday morning meeting at 8:30, October 7th , in the music room! You must be present on October 7th in order to become a member of the club.  Any questions or concerns you may email me at and don’t forget to check the website for any other information,!
