“As long as we live, there is never enough singing.” -Martin Luther
In choir, we are learning to create something of beauty. Music is one of God’s greatest blessings and exists on this earth to express. Each person involved works together to create this special place where great music can be learned, understood, and expressed.
The HCA Chorus travels to different Lutheran churches in the area and sings a variety of choral literature for worship services. In addition, they spend the year preparing to sing for multiple concerts throughout the year: the Christmas Concert, the Easter Concert, and the Spring Concert. HCA choir students acquire a variety of musical skills able to be used throughout life, which takes daily individual effort. In choir students will learn the elements of musical language and will practice using that language independently through sight-singing with excellent phrasing, pitch, and rhythm. They will sing with good breath support and create a vibrant, free and open vocal tone. Students practice the craft of ensemble singing through daily exercises and preparation for performance. Students learn all styles of choral literature from the Renaissance to the Contemporary periods.
