Students perform throughout the school year: Grandparents Day, Christmas Carol Sing-Along, Chapel presentations, and Awards Night.
Musicals are performed by students in Grades 1-6 in early November as part of our Grandparents Day festivities.
Students learn proper singing posture, how to match pitch, identify musical concepts, melodic direction, harmony, unique timbres, organized sound, and the role of music in building character in worship and understanding other works of art.
