Choir members work to increase their individual music skills through in-class exercises and at-home practice. We work together to achieve our goals, including performances at school and within the community. Students also learn to develop healthy vocal habits for lifelong voice use.
Elementary School Chorus
Students can participate in two choruses at the Elementary level. Fifth-grade chorus meets for 40 minutes once a week during the school day. Elementary Chorus is open to any student in 3rd-5th grades and meets weekly after school. Students participate in performances during and after the school day, including some weekends. These performances are a requirement of the program.
Middle School Chorus
St. Martin's Middle School students can participate in grade-level choruses. Sixth Grade Chorus meets in quarters, for 12 weeks. Students in 7th and 8th grade have the opportunity to take chorus for a full year and meet three times a week for 40 to 45 minutes. Performances are scheduled during and after school, including some weekends. Attendance is a requirement of the course.
Students in MS choruses have the opportunity to participate in the GISA ALL-SELECT Chorus, which is by audition. Singers in the full-year program in 7th and 8th grades are also eligible to go on the Spring Tour.
