Grades 9 – 12
The Treble Chorus is a women’s chorus that sings a variety of music. It is open to any interested female in grades 9-12. All females in the choir program will be placed into Treble Chorus their freshman year. All students with no choir experience must have a voice placement interview with the instructor before being allowed to participate. Focus will be placed on proper vocal production, sight-reading, diction, music theory, and functioning as a musical ensemble. Required concerts for the Treble Chorus include: the Fall Concert, Holiday Concert, Clinician and/or Large Group Contest, and the Spring Concert. Other performances are possible during the course of the school year. The Treble Chorus meets daily.

If you have students that like to use a more textbook-centered approach, like I did, then you'll find that this is a good curriculum for your family. The problem becomes what to do with Saxon Advanced Math on your homeschool transcript. For those of you who don't know, my sons both loved the Saxon math curriculum, and used it against my better
