As choral directors, we take pride in our students and the many opportunities that we can provide for our young musicians here at SMS. Participation in our program offers an experience that will benefit our students for the rest of their lives. Self-discipline, commitment, cognitive thinking, and working together with a large group are just a few benefits of participating in such a program.
Our goal is to educate the students in musical skills through theory exploration and quality performance experiences. The 7th grade meets every day, all year. The 8th grade program offers two full-year options, with students choosing regular choir or auditioning at the end of their 7th grade year for Select Choir.The handbook, which includes all classroom rules and expectations, can be found by clicking on the link at the left of this page. Any forms or other informational material will continue to added here as the year progresses. The concert schedule, as well as all music related events, can be found by clicking on the calendar.
