At the Lower School level our students engage in music learning and choral music performance through general music class instruction, concerts, and special chapels. The very youngest students experiment with light and pleasant vocal tone production, movement, instrument-playing and iconic music notation. As they progress through the elementary years their listening, writing, and reading of music becomes more formal. The choral program involves all grade levels in Christmas concerts on alternating years, while the 5th grade choir performs several times each year and produces a spring musical. DC Lower School children love to sing in worship, in formal performances, in folk song, and for play.
