Chorus

Welcome to the PHS Choir/Concert Choir Page!!!

 

MUS722/MUS727-Choir/Freshman Honors Choir

The secondary Choir experience is intended to introduce students in grades 9-12 to the vocal ensemble environment. This Choir allows students

with varying experiences to develop their vocal skills and musicianship within a group setting. The discipline of performance enables students to develop emotional maturity, self-poise, and good work habits through self-discipline. Participation in the choir reinforces academic concepts such as concentration and memorization and integrates these with critical thinking, reading, and interpretive skills. In addition, students develop a sense of artistic appreciation and respond physically, emotionally, and intellectually through self-expression, and with confidence. Choir promotes appreciation of the aesthetic expressions of other people and the ability and desire to interpret them creatively.

Students who enjoy singing but may have had no or minimal high school choral experiences are encouraged to take this class, which is considered a pre-requisite for Concert Choir. Singers in Choir will learn the rudiments of vocal technique, sight singing, rhythm, and scales. Members in Choir, Freshman Honors Choir, Concert Choir, and Honors Concert Choir will participate together in all concerts.

The members of the Freshman Honors Choir and the Choir currently meet as combined classes. The members of Freshman Honors Choir devote numerous hours of preparation, rehearsal and practice and concert performance time beyond the school day and school week. Many of these students represent the Parsippany-Troy Hills School District on local, regional, state and national levels.

This course of study will also show correlation to the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards (NJCCCS) for Visual and Performing Arts /1.1- 1.4 and Technology/8.1-8.2
