Ensemble Choir

 

Goals
• To offer advanced students more individualized instruction in choral singing
• To teach students the finer mechanics of blending, vowel formation, breath support, etc. as it benefits a choir
• To expose students to the vast wealth of superior sacred choral music, especially classical choral music
• To inculcate an appreciation for making beautiful music

Who will participate?
• Students in grades 7-12 are welcome to audition
• Elementary students are encouraged to audition; however, parents and students should be aware that the standards of practice are significantly higher than that of the elementary choir

Expectations:
• Rehearsals one hour per week; extra rehearsal/s may be required before concerts
• Timely memorization of music
• Performance in Christmas and Spring Concerts as well as the Live Oak Nights at the Academy. (3-4 programs per year)
