Performing Arts Department


Fine Arts Vocal /Instrumental Music

Chorus - High School (2 Semesters) *9-10-11-12

.25 credit per semester
Choral activities include: choir, show-choir, small vocal ensembles, and solo opportunities (Solo and Ensemble). The program is designed to expose young musicians to all genres of music. Special emphasis is placed upon proper performance etiquette and poise in a public arena. Self-confidence and self-esteem are essential outcomes of participation in the choral offerings. Students are expected to participate in two concerts, state large group contest, and other performances as assigned. Students have opportunities to participate in show-choir, small ensembles, and honor choirs (All State, OPUS, etc.) around Southeast Iowa. Skills developed through choral music performance offerings are highly prized as keys to success in higher education, in the workplace, and the community at large. Teamwork and a positive attitude are a must.

Band High School

(2 Semesters)* 9-10-11-12

.25 per semester
Band encourages students to learn how to enjoy music while acquiring the necessary skills and discipline to perform music to the best of their ability; individually and as a team of musicians.

The band program develops musicianship through the experience of marching band, concert band, and pep band genres. Students are expected to participate in two concerts, and other performances as assigned. State Solo and Ensemble Festival, Jazz Band, Show Band and honor bands are optional.


Jr. High Music Appreciation: *7, 8

The HTC family is one that believes in a “music for all” philosophy. Jr. High Music Appreciation is designed for students who seek a different experience from that of the traditional performing ensembles (choir, band, orchestra, etc.). This class is exploratory in nature and offers exposure to all types of music new and old. Students will also learn about the intricate relationship between music and other disciplines.

Expectations are that students participate in classroom activities, discussions and projects with an open mind and a willingness to learn. The end goal is that students leave this class with a deeper understanding of how to listen to, enjoy and describe/discuss music and topics relating to music.


Junior High Experience *7-8

– Students will be given opportunities to take career assessments and apply their findings to researching those careers. Community members from various careers will be invited into the classroom throughout the year. Careers can be visited outside school as well.

– Students will take an active role in understanding and becoming an effective member of the community.
