MIDDLE & HIGH SCHOOL DRAMA/CHORUS

Concord Academy Drama

The Drama/Chorus department exists to appreciate art and beauty through theater and music, recognizing that God is the Creator of all good things. This class also endeavors to help students discover God’s creativity through their lives. Drama and Chorus are concerned with the communication of human issues and emotions. Students should examine these art forms as part of daily life, as a way of enhancing knowledge and skills, and as a means of expression. All students will benefit from ongoing educational theater and music experiences.

 

The curriculum encourages each student to develop confidence and poise through various group, individual, and performance activities. This course combines a wide variety of activities that promote growth in the following areas: listening skills, critical thinking abilities, research techniques, and performance/delivery skills.
