  • Choir

    As part of the music curriculum, students in third through fifth grade have the opportunity and choice to participate in choir. In choir, students experience the joys of choral singing with performance preparation being the goal of the club. Choir is organized with an emphasis on developing the correct use of the voice. Students are taught choral techniques and they are expected to apply these skills as they work in a group. During rehearsals, students will learn a variety of choral literature, to follow a conductor, and how to develop performance manners.

    Choir meets on Friday mornings from 7:15 am-8:00 am​​​​ in the Holly Hills music room.
