Sing to the glory of His name…
High School Choir
Choral opportunities in the High School include the High School Choir, a Women’s Choir, a Men’s Choir, an auditioned Concert Choir, and an auditioned Mixed Ensemble Choir. Concerts occur throughout the year, showcasing the talent of our students. During Spring Break, the High School Choir tours a Caribbean location, combining singing with a mission outreach. Past destinations have included Puerto Rico, Grenada, and the Cayman Islands. Southeastern tours of the United States have also been taken.
High School students also have the opportunity to participate in the annual musical. The spring musical’s obvious stars are those out front – students who labor at memorizing countless lines and songs. Hidden talents surface, and one has an opportunity to see the “whole student” emerge. Many parents and friends of Cambridge Christian School play alongside students in the musical’s live orchestra. Vital to the success of the spring musical is the participation of the many students who work behind the scenes – whether it be designing costumes, designing and constructing sets, gathering props, or publicizing the musical.
Middle School Choir
The Middle School Choir is comprised of students in the 7th and 8th Grades. These students meet five times a week under the guidance of a vocal instructor. The Middle School Choir has performed at Disney World, Universal Studios, and Tampa Bay Mall, and has participated in District competitions for Hillsborough County Choirs. It regularly performs in the Secondary School chapel services and at nursing homes. Additionally, there are evening concerts here at the school in which students can shine in front of Cambridge Christian School parents and friends. Individual members of this choir have participated in the District Solo competition and have qualified for All States Festival competitions held at the Performing Arts Center in Tampa.
Lower School Choir
Lower School students are introduced to the fine arts through weekly music classes and participation in choral, band and hand bell electives.
Beyond Cambridge Christian School
A yearly international mission trip for Upper School choir students provides the opportunity to minister to those from other cultures using choral, instrumental and dance presentations. Lower School students minister to senior citizens through choral performances at retirement homes and at an annual grandparents day. All Lower School students participate in gift-gathering and vocal performances at the Christmas musical. Students also perform throughout the community in churches, schools and shopping centers.
