The Lutheran Church has a long history of glorifying God through music in worship. We continue this tradition by offering vocal and instrumental music experiences for all students. Examples of these experiences include music theory, folk dancing, music history, recorders, and Orff instruments. Three special music opportunities are described below.
The choirs include the Early Music Program (Grades K-2), the Choristers (Grades 3-4), and the Youth Choir (Grades 5-8).
The Choristers include all students in grades 3 and 4. The Choristers practice twice a week during the school day. The Choristers typically sing once a month during the Sunday church service.
The Youth Choir consists of interested students in grades five to eight, and is a voluntary commitment. It is expected that the parents support their child’s commitment to the choir throughout the school year. The Youth Choir practices once a week and typically sings once a month at during the Sunday church service.
Choir members are expected to be present for these worship services as well as concerts and other performances throughout the year.
