Mr. Jason Etten
Irondale High School Choir
Welcome to the 2020-21 school year!
Fall 2020 Changes
My greatest priorities are that you are safe, that you know that you are valued and important, that music is an emotional super power to help you feel less worried and more whole, and to have chances to sing and make music together. I know that the value of choir and musical expression in your life is greater now than it was a year ago. We will work together to find our way despite being separated by COVID-19, struggling with major social change and racism, and struggling with life in general. We will be more whole together.
Please find below a link to the Choir Google Sites web page. The Google site will be your central location for assignments, online copies of music, and recordings for practicing and listening activities. Thank you for your patience as we try to improve what happened last spring while getting training on new technology tools and ways to connect.
