LGPE on Monday, March 16th – Georgia Music Educators Association Choral Performance Evaluations

On Monday, March 16th, the Walton Chorus will participate in the GMEA Large Group Performance Evaluation (LGPE). You will find specific details and the agenda for each chorus at the bottom of this page. The schedule for each chorus is different.

The GMEA Choral Evaluations are an important part of our curriculum and are considered to be our end of course test.

The goals of the GMEA Choral Performance Evaluations are:

  • To promote through evaluation, advice, and suggestion, the development of musical knowledge as expressed in performance,
  • To raise the standards of musicianship, technical knowledge, and literature selection of performers, and
  • To offer students and teachers the opportunity of extended listening to the best work of peer groups from other schools.

LGPE Agenda for each chorus:

A Cappella Letter to AC Parents 2020
Camerata Letter to CS Parents 2020
Bel Canto Letter to BC 2020
Raider Singers Letter to RS Parents 2020
Select Women’s Ensemble Letter to SWE 2020

Walton Chorus Donates Four Boxes of Clothing, School Supplies, Toys, and Books to Kids in Rurii, Kenya

A big thank you to our students and parents for so generously supporting kids in Rurii, Kenya. We filled four boxes of clothing, school supplies, toys, and books. You also donated the funds to ship them to Kenya! Because of your efforts, hundreds of children and teenagers will be able to learn.

We are always proud of our students as musicians and as leaders, and we are especially proud to see them growing into young people who will change the world for the better.

Mr. Karuga was so moved by your generosity. Following is a video of Mr. Karuga thanking the students.
