The RBA middle school chorus is comprised of 6th through 8th grade students interested in learning about and practicing vocal music. Students in this class work on a variety of music throughout the year ranging from art songs, holiday music from various cultures, and even contemporary Broadway and popular music. These students are asked throughout various times in the year to participate in singing at community events such as patriotic rallies, performing at the Brunswick County Courthouse, and even traveling in the Spring to choral competitions at Carowinds and Busch Gardens. Additionally, students learn about proper vocal production, Solfege (and Kodaly hand signals), and leadership within a group setting. Students spend a great deal of time on their group singing skills, but are also encouraged to participate in singing solos and small groups. Students may also audition to participate in one of the two honor’s choirs outside of class time! Many of these students go above and beyond to develop and utilize their vocal music talents.
