    Cub & Wildcat Choir

    Choir Director - Donna Brodland

    The West Woodland Choir Committee and Director welcome all existing and new students to join the school choir! Last year over 80 students participated!   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, and scholarship information is below.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: How often does the choir practice and when do they meet?
    A: There are two choirs divided by grade. The Cub Choir is for Kindergarten through 2nd graders and the Wildcat Choir is for 3rd to 5th graders. Both choirs meet twice a week in the mornings from 7:20a.m. to 7:50 a.m. in the auditorium backstage. The schedule for each choir is:

    • Cub Choir: Tuesdays & Thursdays, Starts Sept. 24 at 7:20 a.m.
    • Wildcat Choir: Wednesdays & Fridays, Starts Sept. 25 at 7:20 a.m.

    Q: Where do the choirs perform?
    A: Both choirs perform at the Winter and Spring school concerts. In addition, we have some performances at outside venues (TBD). For example, in the past few years, the Cub Choir has performed at the Norse Home during spring. The Wildcat Choir has performed at WinterFest (Seattle Center.) and last year we were invited to sing the national anthem at a Mariners game

    Q: Who is the Choir Director?
    A: We are excited to have Donna Brodland returning as the Choir Director. She is a professional musician who has taught the choirs for the last 17 years.

    Q: What is the cost to join the choir?
    A: The choir is an independent, PTA-sanctioned club that collects tuition to pay for the director, field trips, equipment, t-shirts, etc. The annual tuition is just $295 per student, payable at the start of the school year.

    Q: What is the tuition if we have multiple children involved in choir?
    A: After the first tuition is paid in full, there is a $50 discount for enrolling subsequent siblings.

    Q: We love music, but need a bit of financial assistance to make this pencil on our household budget. What do we do?
    A: Apply for a scholarship! Scholarships for reduced tuition (amount is TBD) are available. Families can pick up scholarship request forms in the school office. All requests will be kept confidential. These funds are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

    Q: How do I register my child for choir?
    A: To register your child for the choir, please complete our form. Open registration begins September 1. Payment is made to the West Woodland PTA online via Pay Pal or by check made out to “WWPTA” (note “choir + kid’s name on check) and placed in the choir envelope in the main office. Please register and submit payment by the first day of choir.

    If you have any questions about the choir or the registration process, please feel free to send a note to

    Q. Who manages the choir?
    A: The choir is a separate entity that is not run within the WW Enrichment program. A few parents comprise the fun and low-key committee, a group that supports the director, weighs in on decisions, and provides administration. We are inviting a few new parents to join this group – with the added benefit of a tuition discount. Please send an email to with your interest. We’d love to chat!
