Their Singing & Their Songs
Children were born to sing. We were all given heartstrings. Some people play the heartstrings and some listen with them.
When children come together and tune their voices to each other, and balance and blend their
voices with one another, a special bond is formed.
In choral music we must be strong and know our parts as individuals, yet blend, listen, and support the other singers. Our goal in this game is to score as a unit, as one choir with many parts.
Our technique as individuals and as a choir is essential for our communication, but our desire and purpose is to connect from our hearts to the hearts of our audience. When we achieve this goal, we leave the stage victorious!
Our songs are specifically chosen to help the singers develop extraordinary musical production. Through the study of diverse music from around the world, our singers have the opportunity to learn about new cultures. We will study the time and place the music was written, what was happening in the world at that time, as well as the composers’ lives.
Our hearts and souls internalize the music as we sing of love, freedom, unity, respect, patriotism, and faith.
