The Strong Rock Christian School Choral Music Department provides students the opportunity to develop and express their God-given gifts and talents in choral music. We believe that students should enhance their individual potential to understand music as an art form, promote the use of music as a form of self-expression, value music as an aesthetic experience, and use music as an inspiring form of worship. Strong Rock choral offerings include general music instruction through the fourth grade, elementary and middle school choruses, praise teams, concert choirs, and select ensembles.The choral music program provides instruction which focuses on a sequential program of skills development while encouraging academic excellence and Christ-like character.
Strong Rock Christian School provides elementary students with instruction of the core essentials of learning proper singing skills, playing instruments, learning to read music, and learning about music history. Each elementary student at Strong Rock Christian School gets the opportunity to perform before an audience each year with music at their learning level. Elementary students also get to worship our Lord Jesus Christ through singing, both in the music classroom and each week in chapel.
Strong Rock students in third and fourth grades get the opportunity to audition and become a part of the SRCS Elementary Chorus. The Elementary Chorus performs throughout the year at concerts and other school events. In past years, the Elementary Chorus has won awards at ACSI choral festivals. Additionally, Elementary Chorus students have been involved in the ministry of singing at nursing homes and other venues. Some of these students have gone on to audition for, and sing in, the GMEA Statewide Elementary Chorus.
