Mixed Choir | 7th-12th Grades
Upper School students are invited to join the Mixed Choir. The eagerness of our students to sing is clearly evidenced by the number of singers that volunteer to join this choir. They sing both accompanied and acapella music written for 4-8 vocal parts. This choir has performed original compositions of Lotti, Praetorius, Bach, Vivaldi, Handel, Mozart, Rachmaninoff, and Vaughan Williams, as well as the Spirituals of Moses Hogan, William Dawson, and a few others. It has also enjoyed folk music from Russia, Africa, Czechoslovakia, and England (to name just a few). The choir learns a large scale masterwork every few years (Mozart’s Requiem 2015, Vivaldi’s Gloria 2018). Members of this choir rehearse twice a week: once with either the men or women of the choir and once all together. They regularly perform at the Festival of Lessons and Carols in December, at the Spring Concert in May, and at Graduation.
