Our non-auditioned Elementary, Middle School and High School Choruses are great groups to expand musical skills. During the year, students learn to read music from the printed page, acquire music theory skills, and prepare for concerts. The chorus works on a varied and exciting repertoire each semester, drawing from a broad variety of musical streams including gospel, traditional folk, spirituals, contemporary, jazz, Renaissance, and classical. Past concerts have included Mozart’s Alleluia Canon, Gospel favorites like Down to the River to Pray, Gershwin medleys, and various Broadway and sacred pieces.
We endeavor to teach the musical and vocal skills necessary to produce a lifelong enjoyment of the creative arts. Students learn the fundamentals of proper choral technique (posture, breathing, diction, dynamic control, pitch control, rhythm, etc.) so that they can sing properly. We desire to create a learning environment that is enjoyable and encouraging for all participants. We want to provide an opportunity for students and parents to develop lasting relationships with others within Joyful Noise.
