Music Opportunities for 2022-2023

The music department is looking to gather information about programs students might like to see next year. Is there a group you’ve been wanting to join but aren’t sure how? Maybe you’d be interested in auditioning for our musical theatre production next year, or perhaps there’s an ensemble you’d like to see at Horton. Regardless of what you’re thinking, we want to hear from ALL students at Horton, so check out this Google Form and response ASAP:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfIBBgnGDAUE6DQUhH3uuOj50FNcwsQtawk_xykwPcQ4ZLErQ/viewform?usp=sf_link   Also, don’t hesitate to swing by the music office to chat with Ms. Mitchell about any of the current or potential offerings!
