Concert Choir

 

The Concert Choir was born out of the restructuring of our thirtieth anniversary season, 2014-2015, and was launched with over 60 members! It consists of boys and girls in the fourth and fifth grades and meets weekly on Tuesdays from 4:00-5:30 PM with Mr. and Mrs. Procter, Mr. Diaz, and Dr. Taranto teaching. Every spring semester they take an overnight trip within the state for a concert and often a collaboration with another choral group, a visit to a zoo or museum, a pizza party, possibly bowling, skating or other fun activities. They also sing school concerts each semester and perform in the Alabama Choir School's winter and spring concerts with all five choirs at the University of Alabama's beautiful Moody Concert Hall at the School of Music. When a Concert Choir member displays the musical and developmental maturity required for more difficult music and for extensive, even international traveling, he or she is invited to move up to the Ambassador Choir, one of our two most advanced choirs. In the recent past, the Concert Choir has attended a Birmingham Barons baseball game, where they not only sang the National Anthem, but also performed at the Negro Southern League Museum. They also traveled to Montgomery for a production of "The Miracle Worker" at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival two years ago, to Birmingham this past year for RMTC's production of High School Musical, and to perform for residents of assisted living homes, plus touring these two city's respective zoos, and having FUN!
