Clubs

About our school clubs.

Wildcats Art Club

The Harmony Wildcats Art Club is established to promote a creative outlet for those students seeking additional art. Students will be creating their own art as well as working collaboratively. The group will also work towards art awareness within the surrounding community.

The Wildcats Art Club is open to Harmony 4th grade students and will meet most Wednesday mornings at 7:30.

Chorus

Chorus is open to 4th and 5th graders. The club's mission is to develop young vocalists' technique and singing styles through exciting repertoire. The Chorus Club performs for the community through a fall concert as well as a spring musical in which club members may choose to audition. Information about the musical will release in the late fall semester.


Chorus Club dues are $15, which pays for t-shirts and a live, professional pianist.


Chorus Club rehearsals start on August 24th at 7:10am. It is imperative that parents drop their students off in the car rider lane between 7:10-7:20am, as the rehearsals begin quickly after 7:20am. If you arrive in the car rider line, and a teacher is not there to greet your student, you must walk them in through the front doors and to the music room.

The Harmony Orff Ensemble is a new year-long club open to 4th and 5th grade students who also participate in Chorus Club.

This group of 16 students will learn how to play advanced music on our classroom instruments, and they will be featured in all Chorus Club performances. In order to be a member of the ensemble, your student must audition. Auditions will take place the mornings of August 28th through September 1st. Once students have been chosen to participate, rehearsals will start on September 7th, and will continue every Thursday afternoon from 3:20-4:45pm. This schedule means that the Orff Ensemble students will participate in regular Chorus Club rehearsal in the morning as well as Orff Ensemble rehearsal in the afternoon for most weeks of the year. If your student loves music class and wants to learn more than what he or she learns in their specials class, this is the group for them. If your student wishes to audition for the ensemble, please fill out the Chorus Club permission form and indicate your student's interest. The Orff Ensemble roster will post through e-mail and outside the music room door on either September 1st or September 4th.
