Spring 2022 Semester

The mission of the KC Connected Homeschool (KCCH) Choir is to bring opportunities for musical training and performance to homeschooled children in the Kansas City Metro Area.  We desire to fill a need for these opportunities on the Missouri side of the Metro, and bring high-quality training for affordable prices.  We desire to center our times together around Jesus, and use the arts to honor and worship Him.

Right now, in Fall 2021, we have a choir of 30 kids ranging in ages 6-12.  God is meeting us every week as we learn together to sing beautiful music!  Along the way, we're learning about music styles, how to sing in parts, some key signatures, how to incorporate soloists.  We'll be adding even more skills by the end of the semester!

In Spring 2022, we will be producing a Junior Musical!  

We are still in the process of determining which show we'll be doing, but all the other information you need to get involved is included in this post!

Kelsie Clark Massey is such a gift to the arts community, and she we are so excited to be continuing our journey with her!  Kelsie is a passionate lover of Jesus, highly qualified to teach and perform in all performing arts, and has a deep love for children.  Click here to read her full bio.  Kelsie will be teaching and directing our musical this semester.

Christa Norman is a homeschool mom that is passionate about giving families a place to connect.  She will continue to be the administrator of this group.  All questions regarding registration, schedules, ticket sales, etc will be handled by Christa.  It's going to be a busy semester of learning together how to produce a musical, and she work hard to bring order into the chaos.

A Junior Musical is usually a 45 minute performance, an abridged version of the full musical.  It will include, though, all the charm and excitement of a full musical.  Our class times will be very busy and diverse with song singing, dancing learning, stage blocking, set making, and all the things that go into producing a musical.  Our musical will have a full cast and a full chorus; every student that is registered is guaranteed to be part of the full performance, but not every student is guaranteed to have a speaking or solo role.  We will do our best to highlight everyone's unique gifting, and to provide opportunities to shine that match the student's developmental readiness.

We are limiting this production to 60 students, ages 6 and upThese spots will be offered first come, first serve.  The application process simply confirms space.

 We are offering additional registration for a few stage "crew" positions.  This is for students that desire to be part of the musical process, but do not want to be on stage performing.  Registration is very limited for crew, and spots will be granted on a first-come, first-serve basis.  These positions will require hard work, and attention to detail.

We are also receiving applications for Stage Manager and Assistant Stage Manger position.

Stage Manager will need to be an older student.  There is a spot to specify application for these positions on the main application.

****Our Stage Crew is currently full****
Any new registrations for Crew positions after November 6, 2022 will go to a waiting list.  Students interested in crew will be invited to participate in the musical.

When you receive your confirmation email (from mrsnorman2006@gmail.com), you will be able to pay your semester fees at any time.
