About Mrs. Meyer
Mrs. Meyer is enjoying her eighth year in School District 49 and her sixth year as the Choir Director at Falcon High School. She loves teaching choir and is excited to see significant growth in the program!
When she's not teaching, Mrs. Meyer is an avid board gamer. She also enjoys gardening, composing (especially at coffee shops), sitting down to a nice meal, and tackling home improvement projects.
Falcon High School will offer the following choir courses for the 2023-2024 school year:
Concert Choir (a beginning-level choir for all grade levels - no audition necessary)
Treble Choir (an intermediate-level choir for sopranos, altos and/or females of all grade levels - no audition necessary)
Tenor/Bass Choir (an intermediate-level choir for tenors, basses and/or males of all grade levels - no audition necessary)
Chamber Choir (an auditioned choir for students of all grades to learn choral singing at a deeper level)
Show Choir (an auditioned introduction to high-school-level show choir for students of all grades)
Advanced Show Choir (an auditioned, competitive, traveling show choir - grades 10-12)
Auditions for auditioned choirs during the 2023-2024 school year will take place during January 2023. Current FHS choir students should schedule a time for their vocal audition before, during, or after the school day. Current 8th-grade FMS choir students can complete a vocal audition at FMS during their regular 8th-grade choir class period. Current 8th-grade students at FMS (or elsewhere) can come to FHS on a scheduled day in January to complete a vocal audition (and participate in the dance audition process if auditioning for a show choir).
Every student auditioning for a choir at FHS must complete the following two documents:
1) Signed Parent & Student Agreement form (second-to-last page of the FHS Auditioned Choir Handbook)
2) 2023-2024 FHS Choir Audition Form (last page of the FHS Auditioned Choir Handbook)
For students planning to audition for the FHS show choirs, dance auditions will begin at (date & time TBD). They will take place in the FHS commons. Students do not need to prepare anything beforehand, as the choreography will be taught step-by-step on that evening. However, if they wish to prepare, the full audition choreography video is posted at the top of this webpage.
