The Junior High Choir is comprised of 7th-8th graders who love to sing and worship the Lord! This choir meets during one full period of the regular block schedule. They have approximately 5-6 performances throughout the year. These performances include performing in the Downey community and on campus for Thanksgiving and Christmas, as well as competitions at the ACSI Choir Festival and the Music in the Parks Festival at Knott's Berry Farm. The Junior High Choir takes the next step in improving their vocal production, music theory, sight-reading, and rehearsal etiquette. However, the most important goal is to train these students to worship the Lord in everything and to prepare them for high school choir.
