Welcome to

Meigs Middle School Chorus!

My name is Jamie Hayes. So you know a little about me, I have a background in performance and I have performed professionally in Musical Theater around the country. I hold a BA in Music from Valdosta State University. I also teach private voice and piano and have taught Kindermusik. While I originally come from GA, in 2011 I moved from New York City to live in Fort Walton Beach. Meigs Chorus is a great place to explore your love of singing. We work hard towards improving ourselves and growing every year. We sing classical chorus music and perform in front of judges. The skills learned can be used on more popular music we all enjoy singing. There are 4 Choirs at Meigs, 6th grade Chorus, Concert Chorus (7th and 8th grade) and two auditioned groups, Select and Show Choir. Select is our elite group that go to competitions and travel. They are the face of Meigs Chorus and are held at a higher standard. Show Choir is singing and dancing! Both Auditioned groups are only open to 7th and 8th grade. Come join our family! Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns

Sincerely,

Jamie Hayes
Chorus Director
Clifford Meigs Middle School

All State and All County Information for 2019 - 2020 

*****All County and All State happen all around the same time. All County is a great way to prep for All State so we require All State kiddos to participate in both All County and All State. You may only do All County if you choose. Both are amazing opportunities that can go on resumes and help you grow in your music. All State is auditioned, All county goes through me. All county has hard music, however, if you are willing to work come on!
