chorus (Grade 5)

Advanced Chorus is open to all students in grade five. This large ensemble focuses its learning on performing a larger repertoire of music of many styles. The skill level spirals from the end of the beginning level chorus, with greater emphasis on more difficult rhythms and two-part singing. It is recommended that students try the Advanced Chorus before choosing to continue in the Middle School choral program. Chorus meets from September through May at 8 a.m. on Mondays for girls and Wednesdays for boys. We perform two concerts each year.

Students receive small-group ski instruction based on their individual skiing ability. Participants get to ski at Willard Mountain with friends and make new friends at the same time.
