Music Programs at APV - Friends for Life
APV Friends for Life offers a music program that includes a variety of pathways for students. A class room music program is provided for all students on a weekly basis, and two after school performance-based options are provided as well.
If you enjoy singing in the shower, around the house or anywhere, Choir may be for you. If you love to play guitar or piano, Choir may be for you. If you are interested in acting in plays and musicals, Choir may be for you. Choir is a singing group where the goal is to blend as a group, not stand out. Being in Choir is like being on a team. We all work together to create something beautiful. Previous singing experience is not required, as learning how to use your instrument; the voice is part of the class. Also, Choir is a lot of fun.
This year, the APV Choir has grown so much. At the beginning of the school year, many members did not feel that they could sing. Many did not know how to read music. Now, they are all singing musically, expressively, and in tune. They are also reading and singing their parts by sight. This is a very big accomplishment. I am very proud of each one of my Choir members and the growth that they have made as singers and as people. The Choir is now tackling some challenging songs for our spring concert. Please join us in May for our final concert of the year. You do not want to miss it.
The ‘FRIENDS FOR LIFE’ symphonic band led by Colombian conductor, maestro Luis Hidelberth Morales, began its musical adventure in the month of November, 2018, with 25 students from grades – 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th. Only one month after its creation, the symphonic band offered its first presentation including 3 full score pieces! An astonishing accomplishment for young students without prior music experience.
The ultimate goal for 2020, is to have at least 50 musicians in our band to compete at the different musical events in the area. This program has received strong support from our boards of directors, the principal, teachers, and our community. We want to invite more and more participants to become proud members of our band. Please come to the front office and request more information.
