Vocal Music at Avon Old Farms School
The opportunity to learn about the arts and to perform as an artist is an essential part of a well-rounded curriculum. www.spreadmusicnow.orgThe vocal music program at Avon Old Farms School is made up of four choral ensembles and serves more than 80 students. Of the ensembles, three are curricular (Chorale, Honors Chorale, and the Riddlers), while our student-run a cappella group meets independently (the Sing-ed Beavers). Students in the vocal music program participate in Regional and All-State Honor programs in the Connecticut Music Educators Association and American Choral Directors Association.
“What sets Avon apart is the importance music plays in the daily lives of many students. There are many students on campus for whom music comes first, and that allows for a true music community on campus where budding musicians can grow.”
