 Spencerville Academy Chorale, and Strings with Community players and singers perform Magnificat by John Rutter.


Academy Chorale

The Academy Choir is Spencerville Academy's mass student choir.  Students may be asked to audition, however, membership acceptance is weighted heavier on desire to sing and teamwork abilities than on singing skills. This group performs at Christmas and in the spring, as well as throughout the year at various churches. 

Honors Choir

Membership in the Honors chorus is by audition only. Students are expected to have a willingness to be a team player as well as leadership skills. Students in the Honors Chorus must also be members of the Academy Chorale. As the touring Choir of Spencerville Academy, students can expect additional concerts performances at local churches throughout the Maryland, D.C., and Virginia area. This year the Honors Chorus and Orchestra will tour Puerto Rico in December 2016-2017. Every other year students also attend the choral festival at Washington Adventist University. In addition to sight-singing, singing, and theory assessments, students in Honor's Chorus are strongly encouraged to take private voice lessons by expert voice technicians on staff as Spencerville. Students in this organization shall assist as section leaders in both choirs.

Academy String Ensemble

Students in Academy strings can expect performances at churches in the D.C. metro area, a Christmas concert, a spring concert, and music festivals.  Students must audition and have had experience playing the violin, viola, cello, or bass for at least three to four years years.  Students are assessed on a regular basis for chair assignments as well as graded playing.  The string ensemble will be embarking on a tour this year to Puerto Rico in December 2016-2017.
