There are three different levels of giving:
Concert Choir exists to cultivate, educate and nurture the musical talent and creativity of our students. The students will accomplish this through performance excellence, music literacy, history and exposure to a variety of musical styles and genres. Choral music is an incredible avenue toward building better musicians and better people. Students are able to develop their self-esteem and ability to express themselves. Out-of-school rehearsals, performances, and activities are part of the course grade. These activities are integral elements that support and extend learning in the classroom. Private voice lessons, festival experiences, and honor choir opportunities are available but not required for participants. Homework (practicing) will vary with the individual.
Jazz Choir, St. Mary’s Blues, is an auditioned group designed to emphasize choral techniques, performance of vocal jazz choral literature, and microphone technique with sound systems. This course will also include creating student arrangements of popular music. The ensemble size will be determined by quality of auditions and resources available. It is open to grades 9-12, soprano, alto, tenor, bass, and vocal percussion. Ensemble members must be part of the concert choir. The jazz choir performs in the community, at various festivals, formal concert performances, and records in studio alternating years. Jazz choir meets outside the regular class day allowing additional room for other coursework.
