The ISPA choir started as a club in 2011 that was formed by the prior music teacher here, Mr. Keller and started with less than 15 girls that would meet after school every Thursday for an hour. And continued to be merely that the following year in 2012. Even though the club was one of the smallest the girl within it could not have been any closer and more of a cooperating team and the best friends. They were extremely shy and were even afraid to perform at regular school activities with less than 25 people in the audience. Today the ISPA choir has almost 30 girls and is louder than ever ready to perform at professional occasions. The chorus girls have come a long way from being the out casted club to the club the student body looks forward to seeing at events. We hope to even begin to participate in state competitions in the following school year, and considering it began as a club just for fun this is a very large step. The chorus performs at every single informational meeting for incoming freshman (hopefully recruiting new members for the following year), holiday school events, and the largest annual performance is the ISPA graduation which can be up 500+ people. At the performances the chorus has a unified which is required to wear at every performance which makes the girls look very professional and consolidate during the music. The variety the chorus sings ranges from old traditional songs like “Ose Shalom”, a Jewish prayer, and “Silent Night” to songs such as “Happy” by Pharrell Williams and “Cups” from Pitch Perfect. If there are any girls interested in joining the following year, you will not regret it. And if you are afraid to not be good enough to join as long as you can match a note you can learn the rest of the way and will be able to join!
