Choral Groups Earn High Marks at Large Group Performance Evaluation
Congratulations to the Raider Choral groups for their outstanding performances at the Spring 2017 Georgia Music Educators Association (GMEA) Large Group Performance Evaluation (LGPE). The Advanced Men’s Chorus, the Intermediate/Advanced Women’s Chorus, and the Riverwood Singers, totaling more than 90 students, traveled to Christian Fellowship Baptist Church on Thursday, March 2 for their biggest and most important performance of the year. Each group sang extremely well and received "Superior" and "Excellent" ratings in all categories.
The Choral program consists of five curricular choirs: four advanced level choirs and one beginning level choir.
Advanced Men's Chorus
Advanced Women's Chorus
Beginning/Intermediate Mixed Chorus

All four advanced level choirs consistently receive Superiors in both sight reading and performance at the annual District 5 GMEA Large Group Performance Evaluation. Choirs perform at four annual concerts, as well as at community events. Students new to the choral program must purchase choir uniforms. Financial aid is available, if needed.
