Angel Choir (K) Sunday, 10:00 am in Room C108 This is our youngest group of choristers and is primarily a preparatory group. Choir activities occur for about 10 to 15 minutes of the 9:30 Sunday School hour and the remainder of the hour is spent on the weekly Sunday School lesson. The musical focus is on finding the true singing voice, learning to match pitch, and exploring rhythm. Music literacy readiness activities based on manipulative games create an enthusiasm for future musical growth. Julie Highley is the Director of this choir.
Jubilate Choir (K-2nd grade) Sunday, 5:00 pm in Room C111 At this age, children are ready to begin a regular pattern of participating as a choir in worship, which they will do every six to eight weeks. Musical skills are expanded upon, with beginning emphasis on transferring rudimentary notation to the written page. Time is also given to movement exploration and the use of hand signals as a means of learning to sight sing. Jennifer Hill directs this choir.
Exultate Choir (3rd-5th grade) Sunday, 5:00 pm in C113 More intensive vocal challenges and worship responsibilities are introduced at this age level. They sing in worship every four to six weeks. Increased emphasis is placed on learning musical terminology and literacy development with the goal being usable sight singing skills. The voice is ready for more challenging repertoire and the ear is ready for some part singing. Julie Highley directs this choir.
