CCS Choir / Music
Worship through song is a timeless tradition. At Cincinnati Christian Schools we believe that students grow closer to the Lord through song.
General Music Program: Kindergarten through 4th grades - Students learn the fundamentals of music as a part of their curriculum; they sing, play instruments, learn music reading skills, and learn about music history.
5th and 6th Grade Band/Choir: Students may choose to be in Band or Vocal Music as part of their curriculum. They not only are taught more technical aspects of either playing an instrument or singing, but learn the art of performance through participation in concerts, special events, and more.
Elementary SELECT Choir: This after school program is open to students in 3rd through 6th grades. They rehearse after school and are a vocal performance group. SELECT Choir is a very popular extracurricular at CCS.
Elementary Campus performance opportunities include the Christmas Concert in December and the Spring Concert, usually in May. These two concerts are performed by all Elementary Campus choirs and music students and take place in the Tri-County Assembly of God sanctuary. The SELECT Choir Concert is a performance for only the SELECT Choir group. It takes place at First Baptist Church of Fairfield.
Also, every now and then, the Junior/Senior High Campus Theatre Department has open tryouts for some elementary aged students. Obviously, this opportunity only occurs when the chosen play/musical requires younger actors.
Junior/Senior High Campus
Band, Choir or Music Theory: Junior High students are required to take a music course as part of their curriculum.
Choral Music as an Elective: Senior High students may choose to participate in Choir as an elective.
