VOX & ENCORE
Conrady offers two year-long choir classes that meet during the school day.
Vox - 7th grade choir
Encore - 8th grade choir
Choir is a performance-based class. Formal performances are mandatory and are held twice a year during evening hours and is worth 40% of worth of the final grade.
Music is a performing art. A performance before an audience provides a very tangible goal for rehearsal instruction. The challenge and discipline of creating and refining music is more keenly felt when the culmination is a public performance. Not only is the performance a means of both individual and group evaluation, it is also a maturing educational experience for each performer.
DURING FORMAL CONCERTS, DRESS ATTIRE IS REQUIRED:
Dresses - Students who wish to wear dresses will wear formalwear provided by the school. Additionally, black dress shoes (close or open-toed are acceptable) are mandatory.
Pants - Students who wish to wear pants must wear black long-sleeved button down shirts, black dress pants (no jeans, joggers, or sweatpants,) black socks, and black dress shoes (no sneakers or sandals.) Students will also wear a gold tie provided by the school.
