Honour choir comes to West Van
The most talented choral singers in the West Vancouver school district will come together in a new course next school year.
District Honour Choir is open to skilled students in Grades 7 to 12 who have experience singing in a choir and know basic music theory. Auditions take place in April.
“This program is for the finest young singers in the district,” said music teacher Suzanne Fulton, who will be leading the class.
“The kids have to be pretty exceptional to get in.”
The course, which will run on Wednesday evenings at West Van secondary school, is worth four fine arts credits a year, allowing students to earn additional credits towards graduation before they hit their senior years of high school.
“These students will be motivated to perform at a very high level,” says Fulton.
“We’re starting in Grade 7 to show students in elementary school what’s possible in high school.
A parent/student information meeting is being held on Feb, 20 at West Van secondary.
