Choir is for everyone!
All students in grades 1 through 8 are in choir.
We have two select choirs: Treblemakers for grades 4 through 6 and Chorale for grades 7 and 8. These are audition only groups.
Each choir has specific performance wear and concerts to attend.
Grade 1 and 2 Cherub Choir
Students will learn the basics of chorale sings through fun and rhythmically challenging unison and partner songs. They will develop a sense of team work and confidence when they perform in both the Christmas Concert and Spring Concert.
Grade 3 and 4 Glee Club
Glee Club members continue to learn life long singing skill along with basic note reading and ear training. They begin to sing in harmony with Partner Songs and 2-part pieces performed at the Christmas Concert and Spring Concert.
Grade 5 and 6 Junior Choir
Junior Choir members continue to build their music reading skills through sight singing and rhythm exercises. They perform in two-part pieces and their repertoire begins to include more modern songs. They also perform at the Christmas and Spring Concerts with the Middle School Choir.
Grade 7 and 8 Middle School Choirs
Choir members choose to be in this group. They meet, separately by gender, once every six days in the cycle during part of their lunch/recess and their advisory periods. Students sing pieces for their specific voice types and also combine during the concerts to sing in three- and four-part harmonies. The repertoire is extremely varied and a ton of fun!
Treblemakers is a select choir for students in grades 4 through 6. This is an audition only group. Students must show that they can match pitch and sing in harmony. This group meets at 7:30 a.m. in the morning on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, depending on his or her voice part.
They perform much more challenging repertoire and represent our school at various local events including, First Friday in December in Old City Philadelphia; Peddler's Village; Camden Riversharks baseball games and many more exciting events.
Chorale is a select choir for students in grades 7 and 8. This is an audition only choir and is highly competitive. Students must show a great skill in singing, harmonizing and matching pitch. They must also show a high level of school spirit and a positive attitude.
These students represent our school in choir competitions each year. Locations have included, New York, Boston, Annapolis, Williamsburg and even Disney World. Students sing pieces that are extremely challenging and require an additional two to three rehearsals a week. This added work and commitment has given our school Gold rankings in national competitions and leaves the students with memories that last a lifetime.
