MELISSA FISCHER

Greetings from the choir room at East High School. It's a great day to sing. I'm very happy to be leading the choirs at East this year. As a professional
musician for the
last 30+ years, I joined the arena of education in 2009 with great excitement and have aspirations for a fantastic year of choral music. I am a huge fan of jazz, blues
and
pop as well as
traditional choral literature, and look forward to incorporating all styles of music into our rehearsals and performances. I have an "open door" policy and
welcome visitors at
any time, especially those that would like to lend their voices.

Sing on!

Mrs. Fischer

2017-21018 AUDITION RESULTS:

I am sorry it took so long for me to post the results from auditions that took place March 6-9. I found it particularly challenging this year to determine the members for
next year’s advanced choirs. Below you will see the members who are invited to join East’s advanced choirs. Please be aware that I took many things into
consideration.
​Musical aptitude
​Grade Level
​Past experience in an East HS choir and other choirs
​Work ethic
​Solo Preparation (if you auditioned for Swing Choir)

Students that are currently in Men’s or Women’s Choir are invited to return to those choirs if they are not admitted to Swing Choir.
