WELCOME TO CHORUS!
The goal for all students in the Davidsen Choral program is to develop a lifelong appreciation for music through listening, studying, practicing, and performing. Our classes and rehearsals foster a strong sense of discipline, motivation, and an inner drive for excellence. Through performance, students grow self confidence and begin to know that anything is possible when they put their talents and hard work together. Most importantly, as part of a Davidsen Choral Group students will experience music as a positive and fulfilling addition to their daily lives as middle schoolers. Whether students go on to persue music as a career or a hobby, the study and practice during their youth will have given them a wealth of appreciation and understanding of music that will stay with them forever.
Students singing in the Davidsen Chorus musical ensembles are divided by experience and vocal range:
Jolies Voix– 6th Grade (beginning) Chorus
Bella Canzone–7th Grade ladies' chorus
Una Voce–8th Grade ladies' chorus
Amigos Coro–7th and 8th Grade men's chorus
Coro de Fuego (Jazz Ensemble) –7th and 8th Grade by audition only
Each year Chorus Members will perform at least two concerts, Fall and Spring. Upper grades will compete and perform in the MPAs. The Jazz Chorus (Coro de Fuego) also performs at various community events and showcases. Jazz Ensemble members may invite the lower choruses to perform with them in a stage musical production at the end of the year. And the annual Spring Music Department Field Trip is always fun!
