Page history last edited by Sarah Thomas 10 years, 9 months ago

Upper School Chorus 2010-2011

 

Upper School Chorus is a singing group for students in grades 5-8. The students meet once a week by grade level for rehearsal. They also meet every few weeks during study hall/8th grade Chorus. The students learn the fundamentals of choral singing including posture, breath management, diction, expression, and vowel shapes. They also perform show choir choreography for some of their songs.

 

Please mark your calendars for our major performances of the year. These performances are required for all Chorus members.
