GMS Choir

The GMS Choir is an opportunity for 6-8th grade students to sing together! Singers in this ensemble will participate in performances throughout the year, experience choral music in a variety of styles, and build vocal technique and music-reading skills.

Rehearsals

GMS Choir members will rehearse before school once a week:

Tuesday - 7:15-8:00am - Girls
