FRCS A Cappella & Cantata

Dynamix (Mixed Group Grades 9-12)  

Dynamix, is Foxborough Regional Charter School’s select High School academic A Cappella and chorus. It is primarily a contemporary a cappella group, comprised of students grades 9-12 and is a co-ed ensemble that prepares for several performances throughout the school year, such as the annual Winter Concert before Winter Break and the Celebrate the Arts showcase in the Spring. Dynamix can also be seen performing at school pep-rally’s and other School Spirit events.

For the 2017/2018 academic school year, Dynamix will be working on their pop music and holiday repertoire and will also be working towards presenting their first musical theater show which will be an adaptation of Disney’s Moana, tentatively planned for the end of the school year. Dynamix practices during the school day and after school hours to prepare for competitions and adjudications. Dynamix is a participating ensemble in the Great East Festival and will also be auditioning to compete at the 2018 ICHSA open. If you would like Dynamix to perform at your event, please contact FRCS’s High School Choral Director, Melissa Salcedo via email at msalcedo@foxboroughrcs.org.

Dynamix Auditions

In the past, we welcomed several to join as the group was being formed, but as we have grown over the past year, space is now limited. There will be no official auditions for this group for the 2017/2018 school year, however, do reach out to Dynamix’s Director, Melissa Salcedo via email at msalcedo@foxboroughrcs.org to schedule an audition if interested.

High school students who are interested in learning to sing with other singers using vocal harmonies and choreography are invited to audition. The FRCS A Cappella group has performed at a number of venues at the school and in the community including the 9/11 FRCS Memorial Service,  for the Providence Bruins, the Foxboro Senior Center, and for the FRCS Board of Directors. The FRCS A Cappella group is now a regular contestant in the ICHSA competition.
