Chorus is open to ALL students in 4th and 5th grade. Students involved in singing develop many skills that they can use in school and to be successful in life. Singing is not only FUN, but students involved in singing not only perform better in school, but also develop important life-skills such as critical thinking, collaboration, organization, discipline, and goal-setting. The healthiest way for young singers to develop a strong voice is through participation in a choral ensemble. The District 204 music program provides an awesome experience for young singers to begin vocal training beginning in 4th grade. Students continue to build on these skills as they progress through the vocal program, which provides opportunities until the 12th grade. To be a part of chorus at the elementary level, students must register through the on-line link below, and attend the FIRST REHEARSAL. Rehearsals take place on Tuesday mornings from 8:00-8:50AM in the gym. Don't miss out on this awesome opportunity!
