List of 1 items.

Mixed Chorus
Mixed Chorus is composed of both St. Agnes and Strake Jesuit students from grades 9-12. Selected by a required audition in April of the previous school year, chorus members meet daily, Monday through Friday from 7:05 to 7:50 a.m. Chorus members learn basic breathing, vocal focus, and basic music theory. All members learn to sight read and are exposed to a variety of vocal styles, from Renaissance to Broadway. Every student is evaluated twice a year by a required individual jury, during which they perform chorus music in front of the music faculty. All students can perform at least three times a year, audition for All State chorus, and participate in the annual Chorus Tour. Uniforms are required. SAA/SJ Mixed Chorus members receive one performing arts elective credit. 

Messiah Concert
The honored tradition of performing Handel's Messiah is a regular December event for the St. Agnes/Strake Jesuit Mixed Choir. Jeremy Wood, and Kimberly Mendoza direct the students in the Christmas Section of Messiah, comprising a Chorus of over 100 singers. The challenging solos are all performed by students and the exuberant Choruses are sung by the Mixed Chorus. The evening ends with an invitation to the alumni of the choir to join the current choir in singing Handel's famous 'Hallelujah' Chorus. Buy tickets for Messiah online today!

Voice Lessons

Private Vocal Instruction allows students an opportunity to receive instruction on a one-to-one basis. In coordination with the St. Agnes Academy Choral program, this course provides a total instructional program in music. Students receive an in-depth study on vocal technique, posture, breathing, diction, foreign language, and basic music theory as well as performance and audition techniques and opportunities. Students perform voice juries in Fall and Spring and sing in a Vocal Recital at the conclusion of the spring semester. Students meet with the instructor for at least 30 minutes each week. Cost of this non-credit course is $40 per lesson or $480.00 per semester. Contact Kim Mendoza, kmendoza@st-agnes.org, in the Music department for further information.
