Choral / Vocal Music Education
Choral / Vocal Music Philosophy:
The philosophy of the CISD Choral / Vocal Music Program is not only to serve the school and community by providing entertainment and enhancing school and community spirit, but to furnish the student with an invaluable experience to encourage lifelong learning in the arts. The disciplines involved in a well-rounded vocal artist develop coordination, cooperation, teamwork, and self-discipline. The superior choir helps to develop character, accountability, leadership and provides students with an ideal channel for their energies; the choir also gives each student a place to belong, a social and intellectual outlet for like minds.
