The Harper Chorus is a traditional choral experience using a wide variety of musical styles, from folk and classical to popular music. The students will learn to sing in unison and in parts while learning to work together as an ensemble. There will be opportunities throughout the year for solos and small group experiences. Members will study the fundamentals of singing, learn the language of choral music, and prepare for public performances.
1. The Harper Chorus rehearses Tuesday and Thursday mornings before school from 7:50-8:30am in the auditorium.
2. It is essential that students are on time for rehearsals, as the first 15 minutes are dedicated to warming up their voices and working on fundamentals.
3. Students are expected to sign in when they arrive.
Membership is open to students in grades 2, 3, and 4 at Harper School.
Fee is $60.00 for each semester.
