Girls Vocal Class | Grades 7-12
Choir is fun! Singing with a group and working together to make a choral piece come alive is exciting. In 7-12th Girls Choir we will work on two and three part harmony in various styles. This could include Classical, Musical Theater, Pop, Christmas, Patriotic, Spirituals and Folk Songs. We’ll sing in english and other languages. We’ll work on rhythm and movement, which will help us loosen up and “feel” what we’re singing.
We will have 2-3 performances per semester, a concert with other TCHA choirs and perform at a Care Center or Festival.
No audition required, but must be able to sing in tune.
