Instructor: Dr. Brusick
Pupils in grades five through eight have the opportunity to sing in the Seraphim Choir. This choir occasionally sings for worship services and school chapels at Trinity. A factor to take into account when considering this elective is that participation in all scheduled events, such as worship services, concerts and community performances is required.* Please consider this if you are not a member of Trinity Lutheran Church.
*Each year the choir performs in the annual Klein Deutschfest at one of the Klein High Schools, the Neudorf Christmas Concert in Tomball, as well as a Christmas concert and a spring concert held at Trinity Lutheran Church. In the spring, the choir also performs annually for a local adjudicated music festival. Students receive grades for choir, which are based upon rehearsals, written quizzes, singing exams and attendance at required performances. Performance attire is provided by the school each year but students are responsible for their proper upkeep and must return the clothes at the end of the year in order to receive their final grade.
