We believe that vocal music serves three essential purposes at Christian Middle School: To glorify God, to share his gospel with the world, and to build unity among his people.
6th Grade Choir
The 6th Grade Choir is a vocal ensemble dedicated to exploring God’s gift of music in a fun, positive, and educational way.
7th Grade Choir and 8th Grade Choir
The 7th and 8th Grade choirs are both non-audition vocal ensembles that provide a safe and comfortable space for young people to explore music in a way that is honoring to the Lord, encourages positivity, and builds unity.
All three choirs have two required evening semester concerts (Christmas and Spring) and a Nursing Home/Assisted Living Caroling Concert (during the school day). In addition, the 7th and 8th Grade Choirs participate in the evaluative Music in the Parks Festival in April or May of each year.
Middle School Worship Band
Christian Middle School offers a worship band for 6th-8th grade students to have a safe and comfortable place to improve upon musical and leadership skills, and most importantly - an outlet to learn to serve, worship, and honor our wonderful Lord and Savior with all that we are.
The MSWB meets weekly in the band/choir room during advisory and will lead worship for the all-school chapels twice a year (January and April). Students will have opportunities to practice their instruments together, lead devotionals, learn about what worship is, and discuss and explore topics related to worship such as song choice, harmony and melody, lyrics, and what it looks like for a young person to lead worship.
Auditions typically take place the second Tuesday of the school year, and each student interested in auditioning must obtain a packet of info from Mrs. Witty to be signed and turned in on the audition date.
Christian High School’s choirs are directed by Mrs. Laura Witty who enjoys being involved with the worship ministry at her church - playing piano and leading vocally.“Through music, we are able to do what we were created to do – worship the one who created all things. Teaching in a private Christian school, I am blessed to express this reality on a daily basis with my students. Being a following of Jesus, it is my daily obligation to teach so fluently and so passionately that I develop in them a curiosity for the One whom they may not yet know.”
