Franklin Elementary currently has a 4th grade chorus. All students in 4th grade participate. The group meets during the school day and perform in a winter concert and a spring concert. Students learn to sing in unison and also in harmony through the use of partner songs, canons and songs with ostinati. These children sing songs from a variety of cultures and historic periods. Emphasis is placed on good singing technique, learning to perform as an ensemble and on singing musically.
