Chorus

The mission statement for our chorus is to lead students closer to God through the appreciation of music and to create opportunities for students to use their gifts and talents in a way that enhances their lives and enriches their relationships with each other.

We strive for excellence at every level and believe in working hard to achieve our goals. The wide mixture of students involved in chorus and the high level of male participation, which is not characteristic of most high school choruses, attests to the support of the student body and the pride they take in the Jackson Christian Fine Arts department.

The choral program involves approximately 185 students every week who participate in Chorus class as their elective. The Jackson Christian Advanced Chorus, which is audition-only, is now competing as a Concert Choir of 54 students. Our mixed 7th-8th grade chorus is comprised of 75 students and our 6th grade chorus has 52, students. In addition, we have an elementary chorus comprised of all of our 4th and 5th grader students. The Jackson Christian Concert Choir was invited to go to Italy during the summer of 2014 to represent the United States in an international choral festival. They took 75 people, including students and adults, to travel and sing in different locations every night with choruses from other countries. It was such a success that the school decided to continue it every two years. Plans are now underway to make the trip again in 2018.
