The Fifth Grade Chorus is the vocal performing ensemble at State Street School and is open to all fifth grade students who love to sing!

Our chorus meets on Day 1  and Day 4  from 2:40- 3:15 in the music room.

Fifth grade chorus students begin the year learning the basics of choral singing: unison and two part music, reading choral music and learning to perform as an ensemble.  Throughout the year we build on these concepts as we work on vocal technique and prepare for our performances.

Our first concert will be on December 6th 2016 at 7:00 p.m. in the high school auditorium.   Also featured on the concert will be the Beginner's Orchestra, the Fourth and Fifth Grade Orchestra and the Fifth Grade Band.  

The Fifth Grade Musical, a favorite tradition at State Street School, will be performed on May 18th, 2017 at 7:00 in the high school auditorium.
