Bella Voce is Aspire's Advanced treble (soprano/alto) choir. (7th and 8th graders by audition only.) This class moves fast, and really focuses on musicianship, communication, and contextual understanding of the music we learn.
As Aspire's smallest full choral ensemble, Bella Voce has many opportunities to perform in the community! Some highlights have been performing the National Anthem for the Seattle Mariners, singing for state workers in the Rotunda, and more!
As a sixth grader at Aspire, when you register for choir you will automatically be placed in our beginning choir, Concert Choir! This is an all sixth grade ensemble where we will explore the basics of choral music through the year!
Our goal in Concert Choir is to develop music literacy (reading music), vocal technique (the way you sing), and create a culture of trust and compassion through our choral ensemble! In Concert Choir we will explore music from a great many eras, styles, and languages. A highlight of our curriculum is participating in a Choral Festival each April, where we have the opportunity to listen to other choral ensembles from our area, as well as work with experts in the choral field!
Fire Choir is Aspire's intermediate non-auditioned choir (7th and 8th grade)! In Fire Choir, we will continue to expand and improve our understanding of music literacy, while also focusing on other musical skills.
Our goal in Fire Choir is to improve music reading skills, build musicality, part independence, and a deeper understanding of musical context.
In addition to attending Choral Festival each April, Fire Choir also participates in various Zone concerts, representing Aspire in for the elementary and High Schools of each district zone!
