Students will develop the ability to sing with good tone and diction, to sing and read parts, to learn to read music, and to develop a greater understanding of music. Activities include sight-reading exercises, daily choral rehearsals, and performances. All students learn the basics of music theory, music history, sight-reading, and proper vocal production. Several concerts are given each year. Performance demeanor, responsibility to the group, and teamwork are stressed. Attendance at all performances is required. Students are expected to remain in the class for the entire year.
