8th Grade Chorus is open to any student in 8th Grade at Barker Road Middle School. We meet in M-1 or M-5 everyday and we share our repertoire with the 7th grade chorus. Mrs DeBell and I co-direct this group.
Throughout the year, we utilize a curriculum that focuses on foundational singing technique: posture, proper breathing, vocal production, correct pitches and rhythms and other artistic aspects of vocal music. We sing traditional choral repertoire, songs from musicals, pop songs and acapella pieces. There are also opportunities for Area All State, All County and Solo Festival participation.
The attire for 8th Grade Chorus members is as follows:
BOYS: a shirt and a tie.
GIRLS: Please dress up! This could be dress or a skirt, but outfits that include pants or leggings might also be dressy enough. Wear comfortable shoes!
General rules for BOYS and GIRLS: Please avoid athletic attire (workout or gym clothes), big logos and heavy sweaters. The stage lights tend to be warm so don't wear a lot of layers. We want you to look nice and to be comfortable!
