7th and 8th Grade Chorus

7th and 8th Grade Chorus (04127790)

Length:  Year

Format:  Meets Two (2) Days in an Eight (8)-Day Cycle (during Advisory)

Description:  The Chorus is divided into three (3) sections that rehearse separately on their own one day and combine together on the other cycle day.  In this way, students are able to securely learn their parts and then hear them together with the other sections.  Most songs are in three-part harmony and some will use simple motions and/or choreography.  All seventh (7th) and eighth (8th) grade students are eligible and no audition is required.  Band and Orchestra do not conflict with chorus rehearsals, so instrumental students are highly encouraged to participate in the choral program as an important part of their musical training.  The Chorus performs for two (2) school assemblies and two (2) evening concerts, usually December and May.
