Membership in the Arts Academy Choirs is offered after an interview with the choir director. Please call the Arts Academy office to express your interest in scheduling an interview. Choir students will learn to sing with healthy vocal production using the finest literature available for young voices. The repertoire will be varied to include many styles including classical, folk, and musical theater. Performance skills, staging, and choreography will be taught and incorporated in preparation for concerts. Choir rehearsals are held on Monday evenings in Presser Hall on the UMHB Campus.
Time and Day: 6 - 7 pm - Monday
Location: Presser Hall, Room 103
Director: Krista Eshbaugh
Specific Ages: 7 to 10 years (MUST be 7 by September 1 to join the Preparatory Choir)
Krista Eshbaugh has been directing the Preparatory Choir at the Arts Academy since Fall 2000. She has a BME degree from Stetson University in Florida and a Master of Music degree from the University of Miami, Florida. She has taught public and private school music and has been on church staff as Music Assistant. She is passionate about helping our youngest choir-members develop a love for music, excellent singing skills, and beginning musicianship.
