Divino Voce Mixed Choir  |  Grades 8-12

Choir is fun! Singing with a group and working together to make a choral piece come alive is exciting. In Divino Voce we will work on music ranging from unison to 4+ part harmony in various styles. This could include Classical, Musical Theater, Pop, Christmas, Patriotic, Spirituals and Folk Songs. We’ll explore other languages, learn some fun warm-ups, and work on rhythm/movement which will help us loosen up and “feel” what we’re singing. We will perform at the TCHA Choir Concert and a possible second performance at the MOA, Senior Center or festival.

Let’s use our God-given talents to praise His name and to bring joy and beauty to those around us!
