Cub & Wildcat Choir
Choir Director - Donna Brodland

A special welcome to new choir students and their parents...and welcome back to all the returning students and parents!
The West Woodland Choir Steering Committee & Director, Donna Brodland, welcome all existing & new students to join the school choir. There are two groups:
  • Cub Choir - K through 2nd grade
  • Wildcat Choir - 3rd to 5th grade. 
Each meets twice weekly to learn basic vocal techniques, sing songs from a variety of genres, and prepare for performances in front of live audiences.

Schedule, cost, registration and scholarship information is below. 

Parent Agreement for Choir
To enable the Cub Choir (K-2 only) to maintain the level of organization, teaching and fun without capping the number of members and turning away kids who want to join, we ask Cub Choir parents/guardians (K-2 only) to commit to volunteering twice during the year. By registering your child for choir you are agreeing to this commitment. A sign-up sheet for volunteering will be sent out via email in early September.

If you have questions or concerns about meeting this commitment, please contact Karla Stanley at 206-491-2579 or email us at wwchoir@gmail.com.

For families in Wildcat Choir (3rd - 5th graders only) - We will also need volunteers during the year; however, the need is less frequent. Emails will be sent to Wildcats Parents when the need arises.
