choir

The mission of the Caledonia Community Schools Choral program is to nurture students’ musical gifts and creativity by inviting every student to develop their voice, experience a high level of music-making, and cultivate a lifelong appreciation for music. This means that all students are invited to realize their gifts in music ensembles, on the stage, and beyond.

The Choral program at Caledonia extends from the first years of music class in elementary school, through middle school, and into high school. Our mission is to provide high quality and holistic musical experiences for all students.

Elementary Honors Choirs

Middle School Choirs

Our program consists of one Choral ensemble per grade level at both Kraft Meadows and Duncan Lake:

6th Grade Choir

Students will begin developing and applying healthy vocal production in a large group setting. Over the course of the year, students will broaden their musical vocabulary, explore genres of music, and learn several languages through song. Building confidence, performing as a team, and learning how to read music highlight students’ first step into Choir.

7th Grade Choir

Students will continue to develop and apply healthy vocal production. There are opportunities to sing advanced literature and perform solos in smaller groups. Musical independence, music literacy, and performance presentation are core elements of seventh grade choir; in addition, these choirs will attend festival and have extra opportunites to share their music.

8th Grade Choir

Students will continue to develop and apply healthy vocal production with advanced literature, singing independently in three or four part harmony. Eighth grade students will experience sight-singing at the intermediate or advanced level and participate in various festivals across Michigan. There are many solo and group singing opportunities available, whether at an athletic event or the Spring Choir concert!
