Student-members of Connetquot High School’s talented Concert Choir recently toured the district’s elementary schools in an effort to inspire an early love for music and aspiration to join one of Connetquot High School’s shining music programs. 

With assistance from director Brad Drinkwater, the Concert Choir put their incredible vocal talents on full display for students and faculty alike, singing a number of tunes such as “Unclouded Day,” “The Runner,” “Pål På Haugen” and “John the Revelator.” The students, spanning grades 10-12, showcased their groups’ vocal ranges as well, further proving how a vast number of pristine vocal ranges are essential toward creating one concise sound which encompasses the choir.

Additionally, as a fun activity, student-volunteers were called up to co-conduct with Mr. Drinkwater, as they raised and lowered their arms to indicate the pitch at which the student-musicians should sing to. 

Once enrolled in Connetquot High School, student-musicians can aspire to join one of the three traditional choirs offered, such as the Mixed Choir (Grades 9-12, directed by James Nagle), Treble Choir (Grades 10-12, directed by Elizabeth Owens) and the Concert Choir (Grades 10-12, directed by Brad Drinkwater).
