Welcome to the Colin Powell Middle School Choir!  The choir offers two programs for interested students: the Nouveau Choir for 6th graders and the Concert Choir. 

Nouveau Choir

This class provides an opportunity for students to develop their vocal ability and learn to sing a variety of popular and cultural music. This is a graded class that meets daily and requires some evening and weekend performances. 60% of the grade is from daily activities in the classroom and 40% of the grade is based on performances with the choir. There is a one-time fee for the uniform. No audition is required to join.

Concert Choir

Is a year-long graded class.   60% of the grade is from daily activities in the classroom and 40% of the grade is based on performances with the choir (test grades).
