Heart 2 Heart, our Upper School choir, continues to improve vocal production and sight-reading skills, while students are taught to evaluate aesthetics more critically through daily rehearsals. The Kodaly system of sight-reading is mastered at this level. Careful attention is paid to good vocal technique through daily warm-ups and vocalizes. Music theory and history is taught as it applies to the music literature. Upper school choir students are involved in many performances and contests during the year, including Rose Festival, Madrigal Dinner, Grandfriends Day, TMEA All-Region & All State, TAPPS Concert & Sight-Reading, Solo & Ensemble, Spring Concert, Wounded Warriors, etc. Heart 2 Heart has also been able to perform at Carnegie Hall and in Killarney, Dublin, Prague, Vienna, and Salzburg.
