The School Choir is designed to enhance the musical, creative and expressive qualities of all students involved. Musical opportunities are provided for every child to learn the basic skills of singing and music, developing song repertoire, broadening listening skills and experiencing the interrelated nature of music with other cultures and content areas.
Our choir performances are designed for students to apply musical skills as they continue to create and experience music as a musical ensemble. Students will continue developing mastery of harmonies. We encourage musical interpretation with the use of dynamics and phrasing, while incorporating facial expression and movement for refined presentation. In the long run students will understand how a musical composition is structured through listening and analysis. Students will be able to aurally and visually identify repetition in musical scores. Students will continue to develop an understanding and appreciation of the differences in music from other cultures and the connections music brings to people, places and time.
