    The Sunnyvale Honor Choir is a true "Honor Choir". It will be an honor to be part of it. You will be selected through an audition process, and because of the nature of the choir, you must display exceptional behavior during class, so that I will know you will be a wonderful and well-behaved member of the Honor Choir.

     

    GOALS of the Sunnyvale 4th Grade Honor Choir:

    1. To give elementary students a positive choral experience that will foster a lifelong love of music.

    2. To be a vehicle for encouraging students to stay in a music program throughout middle school, high school, and beyond.

    3. To provide students with the opportunity to develop good choral skills and musicianship through quality performances.

    4. To demonstrate the importance of self-discipline in a choral-setting.

    5. To provide an environment to foster the talents of the gifted and talented students in Sunnyvale Elementary.

     

    In order for the Sunnyvale Honor Choir to acheive these goals, its members must demonstrate the ability to: 

    1. Speak or communicate with others only when appropriate.

    2. Stay focused and actively engaged during rehearsals and performances.

    3. Attend all rehearsals and stay informed of important information concerning Sunnyvale Honor Choir events.
