The arts programs at All Saints are growing and expanding, and lots of very exciting arts events are happening all over campus, all year long. Each week this blog will highlight some of the amazing achievements of our arts students.
This week we shine the spotlight on the vocal music program. First, there is a brand new Lower School Choir at All Saints! Music teachers Anita Hurst and Joan Thompson are working with over twenty children in grades 4, 5 and 6 on Wednesday and Friday mornings before school from 7:20 – 7:50. The choir will perform at Lessons & Carols on December 9, and at other special events throughout the year. There are still a few slots left if you want to be a part of the exciting program. Contact Mrs. Thompson at: JoanThompson@aseschool.org for more info.
And, the middle school choir is growing, too. Now with more than twenty students the middle school choir, under the direction of Susan Wiles, has performed at Eucharist and will continue to do so throughout the year. This week, the full choir sang, “Shine on Me” during communion and select members performed during the offertory as well.
And, the Upper School Choir and Honors Choir have started off strong, too. On Tuesday, September 24, the new Upper School Honors Choir, led by Mrs. Susan Wiles, sang during the opening of the Fort Worth City Council Meeting. Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price said All Saints’ were valued members of the Fort Worth community and contributed to the richness of the city.
Whether its hearing the National Anthem sung in beautiful three part harmony at the homecoming game, hearing a full choir sing a hymn at chapel, or a Led Zeppelin song played at an impromptu lunchtime concert, it seems like every time you turn around the halls of All Saints are alive with the joyful noises of our students’ voices.
If you’ve never heard one of our choirs sing I encourage you to do so at your next opportunity. You won’t regret it.
