Choir

The Foundation Academy Upper School Choir Program is designed to come along students and help them explore choral music through study and performance. As we learn from King David in the Book of Psalms, the study of music and lifting song up to the Lord provides sensory, mental, emotional, and social experiences beneficial to any who take part. It is the goal of this program to provide a safe, Christian environment for students to use their talents to glorify God.

Plant St. Choir (4-6)

Our degreed music specialists are passionate about engaging students while teaching them a comprehensive understanding of music. FA students learn how to read music, which is accomplished in creative ways that include singing, music theory, rhythms, choir, and musical productions. Elective singing classes are available to our older students offering even more in-depth experience with singing, percussion, performance, etc. Students also learn how to apply music reading skills to “pre-band” instruments in earlier grades.

Tilden Choir (7-12)

Our award-winning Tilden Campus Choir has performed all over the Central Florida area bringing their artistry and passion to the community. From National Prayer Day events to the Winter Garden Christmas celebration our choir has helped bring the joy of music and song to many people.

We have had members of our choir recognized at the all-state level as well as have our entire choir perform at the famed Carnegie Hall. For the holidays our students have performed on local television.

Our choir program is centered on taking individuals who are driven to improve their musical skills and put them with others in an environment thats fosters learning, growth and as sense of team.

Constant and Consistent Growth

Middle & High School Choirs are designed to teach and improve students’ vocal and performance skills.

Ensemble and Individual Vocal Performance

Application to those skills is challenged daily in both ensemble and individual vocal performance. This is accomplished by teaching vocal technique, mechanics, and anatomy of the voice.

Aural Interval Recognition

Ear training is also an essential part of the student’s training. Aural interval recognition is integrated with visual recognition of music notation. It is our goal for all students to become musically literate.
