Boltz offers choir as an elective for sixth, seventh, and eighth grades. Choir 6 is a semester-long class; choir for upperclassmen is a year-long class. Students who wish to sing in choir AND play an instrument in band/orchestra are allowed to do so. In addition to singing during the school day, Embers 8 - a select women's choir - is offered to seventh and eighth grade students as a zero hour class.
Choir students expand upon their musical knowledge through the use of solfege, Perrot rhythmic duration syllables, absolute pitch names, and of course, score reading. Choir members are exposed to a variety of choral music, regular sight-singing, and part-work. Singers are taught and expected to use proper breath support, diction, expression, phrasing, balance and blend, vocal health and tone production, posture, and choral technique. Songs are expected to be memorized for concert performances.
