Havre High School a cappella choir
A Cappella Choir represents the most advanced choir in a rural community of about 9,800. My goal in directing this ensemble is to provide students with enriching choral experiences that develop their love for music-making. While I believe we achieve this goal well, my students emphasize that it is the friendships and sense of camaraderie that keeps them coming back for more. In this session you will hear A Cappella Choir perform and you'll gain community-building strategies to use in any context: rural, urban, or in-between.
