Student Programs

Cardinal Chorus
Cardinal Chorus is a 4th and 5th grade group with about 85 members. Students audition for places in Chorus. Third graders will audition in May for the next year's 4th grade Chorus spots. Students who are in Chorus as 4th graders do not need to try out again for 5th grade. Students new to Bethel are given an opportunity to audition. Chorus rehearsals on are Thursday mornings in the Music Room [502] at 7:15 A.M. Each member is required to purchase a red Cardinal Chorus shirt which they wear with black pants and black shoes/socks to all performances. Concerts include a holiday performance in December and a spring concert in May.
