In Lower School, students develop their singing voices while beginning to study dynamics, tempo, and melodic contour. Building upon this foundation, Lower Mid students are introduced to ensemble singing and singing in harmony, as well as music theory topics such as rhythm reading, note reading, and sight singing. In addition to opportunities to hone their vocal development skills, Upper Mid students also have the chance to study an instrument (trumpet, horn, trombone, flute, clarinet, saxophone, or oboe) or play in an instrumental ensemble. Upper School students can join the Marymount Singers, our Concert Choir, where they strengthen their sight-singing skills and expand their vocal range. Students in Classes XI and XII may be selected to perform in our Chamber Choir, an advanced course for a cappella, solo, or quartet singing. Students from all divisions regularly perform for assemblies, chapel services, Masses, and special concerts. The Marymount Singers go on a domestic or international travel concert tour each year.
